I have posted sign up sheets in the band hall for the Texas Color Guard Circuit State Championships events that are held at Reed Arena and the Bryan Viking Band and College Station HS Band have had the privilege of hosting for the past four years. Over 150 schools from all over Texas, thousands of spectators, and many directors and judges come from all over the state and country, to our event, and it has been noted as the BEST championships event by many of our guests, who have been to events of the same nature, across the country. This is because the students and parents who work have been awesome in helping make it run smoothly in the past, and we expect this year to be even better! TCGC donates money to our band program for providing the volunteers for this event.
The TCGC Winter Guard Championships is on Saturday, April 1– ALL DAY, and the TCGC Indoor Percussion championships is on Saturday, April 8. There will be shifts and many stations, to be covered, throughout each day. Once you sign up for a shift, we will assign you to a station where we need you.
All volunteers will receive a free t-shirt that they will need to wear when working, and the added bonus is that you can wear this shirt and get in free to watch the performances.
We need all band students and parents to sign up to work at this event. We will have an mandatory orientation session Friday evening, March 31, 2017 at 7 pm at Reed Arena for all volunteers to learn more specifics about their duties assigned.
Here are the job stations we need for each shift: Unit Check-in, Door Monitors, Flowers, Merchandise, Prop Storage, Tickets, Unit Greeters, Ushers, Timers for Warm-up, Judge Hospitality, Runners, Judge Runners, Photo Runners, Relievers, and Unit Guides

Please let me know if you have any questions. Stop by the band hall to sign up, have your student sign your family up, and/or contact me by email and let me know what you are interested in. PLEASE INCLUDE YOUR SHIRT SIZE IN YOUR RESPONSE! Yes- alumni, other family and friends can work, too- no small children please- must be at least 12 years old to work. All band students must sign up to work at least one shift. JV color guard members need to sign up for a half day on April 1, and a half day on April 8, Varsity color guard members will need to sign up to work all day on April 8, and VIP members need to sign up to work all day on April 1.
We would like to have the lists filled and solidified by the time we go away for spring break so we can order the shirts in time!
