Background Checks Necessary!


Rita has reported that many of the chaperone spots are filling at the last minute and for that we greatly thank you!  Just a reminder that per school corporation policy you MUST have a valid, current background check on file and have viewed the anti-bullying webinar no matter what volunteer position you are filling!  This goes for ALL chaperone positions: marching band/practice chaperones, concert band chaperones, helping with equipment, etc.   If you do not have a current background check on file please allow four business days for it to come to process.   If you have any questions on the process or if you're background check is still valid please contact Rita Keeling at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

Again, we appreciate all of our volunteers more than we could ever say but we, understandably, have to follow the school policy guidelines on the background checks.  Thank you for both your understanding and all your help!

RCG Photos


The Royal Guardians and Northcraft Photo are happy to announce a new partnership for 2014.  The Royal Guardians have contracted Northcraft Photo to provide free action images from several events during the marching band season.  Mary and Randy will be attending events and taking the same pictures you have enjoyed in the past, but now you can download them free of charge.

You will notice that the RCG 2014 Gallery on Northcraft Photo has a password to keep non-RCG people from downloading.  This password will be send out via email and it will provide you with access to see all of the 2014 Pictures.  When you select a picture, you will see a download link above it.  Just click on this link to get your free high resolution image.  You can download as many of the images as you like.  These images are yours to use however you want.  You can make prints, post on Facebook or email to friends and family.

If you don’t want the hassle of downloading and having your own prints made, Northcraft Photo has reduced the price of the 2014 season prints by 50% and discounted other merchandise also.  This allows you to have access to a high quality print lab for a deeply discounted price.

Logistics/Pit Crew
Sunday, 03 August 2014 11:37

Logistics/Pit Crew


As many of you know this is Cheryl & Matt Randall's "senior" year with the RCG.  They have done an awesome job handling logistics and the pit for the RCG and Cheryl is now looking for someone to shadow her so they can learn the job and step in next year:


We are in need of someone that would be willing to step up and be a shadow this year for Logistic/Pit Crew. The only responsibility you would have is to be with us on football games days, contest days and a occasional run through with the band on Wednesday evenings at the end of practice.(this usually does not happen until closer to contest time)

Some of the other things that you would be responsible for in the future but not this year:

  • Set up practice field using the buckets and ropes.  We will have to wait until they are done with the parking lot done but this may end up being a very minimal job after this year.
  • Assemble the large drum major podium the week before band camp. A couple dads and it's done in a matter of 20 minutes or less.
  • Making sure there is plenty of gas for the generator.
  • Making reservations with Penske for a tractor to pull our trailer(this is just a phone call)
  • Making sure Jill(or semi driver) has all the dates of our performances(this is just a email)
  • Fix/fill an occasional flat tire on a cart or piece of pit equipment

If you want to get to know some really great parents and some really awesome kids this is a great way to do so.   I know it sounds like a lot work but with the parent help that you get really makes the job a lot easier.   I have never lacked parental help and sometimes depending on the contest location/rules have had more help than they will allow.

If you have any questions or are interested you can contact me at either 317-402-3281 or at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
Lucas Oil Stadium Fundraiser
Saturday, 26 July 2014 17:25

Lucas Oil Stadium Fundraising


One way to offset band fees is to work concessions at Lucas Oil Stadium.  There is some prepartion neccesary in order to work there and Ken Redmond is the RCG representative for LOS and has this important information to share.  There is also further information that will be available under the Fundraising and then LOS tab on the website:


The Royal Guardians have signed a contract with Center plate to staff a stand with 11-16 people (depending upon stand size) per event. There is a bonus payout if we fulfill all the requirements of the contract, including being fully staffed.

New this year is that if we have more people signed up than what we need, they can work at other stands that may be short staffed. We are still working on the details.


Why work at the Lucas Oil Stadium…

  • Reduce your band fees

  • $70-80 (average) contribution to band account per game

  • 10% goes toward band general fund

  • No selling ‘stuff’ to friends, neighbors or others

  • Meet and work with other band parents

  • All the excitement of ‘Game Day’

Typical game day…

  • Meet 5 hours before game starts (8AM for a 1PM kickoff)

  • Get to LOS and sign in

  • Inventory and setup

  • Open stand 2 hours before game starts

  • Sell, have fun, sell, have fun, (repeat till game ends)

  • Clean up and take inventory

  • Return to meeting point


Everyone working MUST have a volunteer liquor permit AND complete the TIPS training. Also everyone MUST attend Centerplate stand training. The next training is at LOS Sunday August 10th starting at 9AM. Center plate training will occur first so those who are still current on TIPS training (3 yrs.) may leave afterward (approx. 2 ½ hours). Car pool will meet behind O'Charley's (in the Target lot) and depart at 8 AM.

Sign up is now open, www.hsehsbands.org/losreg Previous database has been cleared. Please sign up for each individual planning to work at LOS. Number of participants is temporarily set to 100 until we know the size of staff needed for our stand.

Please put your Drivers License number after your Alcohol Permit Number, separated by a comma. Ken Redmond will only send this information to LOS. This is not necessary, but will help expedite your sign in.

Alcohol permit link www.IN.gov/atc



New this year, LOS is requiring a copy of your Alcohol Permit card. Take a phone picture and send it to Ken at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it and he will send them to LOS.

2014 RCG Handbook and Welcome!
Sunday, 08 June 2014 18:17

We would like to welcome all the new and returning members of the 2014 Royal Command and Guard!

As the season begins tomorrow night, Monday, June 9th, we would like to get you aquainted with the Hamilton Southeastern Marching Band and Color Guard called The Royal Command & Guard.  Everyone is extremely excited to see the 2014 season unfold.  

Please find attached the 2014 RCG Handbook.  Please take time to print and read through all the information. 

A couple of items to remember.  The first practice Monday evening will start promptly at 5:00PM, which means you should arrive no later than 4:45PM.  With all the construction, we recommend getting there even earlier.  For the summer season, all students will be required to enter through Door 16, which is the door immediately right (west) of the Main Door #1 Enterence.  Please drop off and/or park in the Main Olio Road parking lot.

First Night!  Calling all parents of 2014 RCG members.  Please join us for what we call First Night.  This is where all the parents will get together for an information night and fair!  This event will start at 7:00 PM Monday (tomorrow), June 9th.  You will be given plenty of opportunity to ask questions of the Royal Guardians' (parent organization) Board Memebers and Committee Chairpersons.  We cannot be a truly successful marching band and guard without the support of all the parents.  Please join us at First Night!

I look forward to meeting all of you.
