WACO ISD FACILITY MAP
Please review the facility map for assigned parking and flow of traffic from on deck to performance to clinic.
Plan on arriving 1 hour prior to your warm-up time and check-in at the Registration Tent near Entrance #3. You will need time to check-in, unload, and warm-up prior to arriving at the Pre-Deck area.
Drumline – $200
Field/Marching Band – $275
Please bring to check-in, checks made payable to TAPPS.
You will warm-up near your vehicles this year to help keep cross traffic low.
Please move to area A at the scheduled time. You will wait there until the group ahead of you starts to move out of area B to perform.
As soon as the group ahead of you completes their performance and they start moving off the field, you will take your place in the performance area. At this station you will be asked to verify the announcing message. The ramp to get from A to B is really steep. You may use the long ramp with a lower degree grade if needed.
Prep play while setting up is allowed. Set-up begins as soon as you begin making your way from On-Deck end-zone to Perform. Once you are set, the announcer will make an announcement of your group. When your performance is over, you will exit to the opposite side of the stadium for your clinic.
The ramp out of the stadium to the clinic area is steep. Please make sure your students are prepared for the incline and support your equipment/instruments from the back. The clinicians we have are really awesome musicians. Please make sure your students are ready to learn something from them.
Be ready and transition quickly.
