Royal Invitational News


The Royal Invitational is a marching band contest that HSE hosts each year.  On September 9th, we look foward to hosting our 11th annual contest. It will last for a large part of the day and into the evening. As of now, we don't have an official start time, but we expect it to begin around 1pm and finish up at the end with the RCG performing our show as an exhibition band.  We do not compete with the other bands we are hosting.  This is a HUGE fundraiser for our program!

We will need at least one adult from every family to volunteer their time at some point during the day in order to make this day a success.  We have MANY different volunteer opportunities and times available.  Look for a SignUp Genius to be sent this week for sign-ups.  Check it out early in order to secure a position that will work for you and your schedule!

Royal Invitational Planning Meetings are every Wednesday @ 7pm in the band room.  These meetings last 1 hour or less.  Please plan to attend these last 3 meetings.  Our sincere thanks to those who have attended our meetings, however we have had very low attendance and we NEED more of you there!!  This fundraiser is necessary to provide our program with the funding it needs to function and this effects us ALL...please plan to be there to learn how you can help!

Our next meetings are:

Wednesday 8/23 @7pm in the band room *We highly encourage all parents to attend

Wednesday 8/30 @ 7pm in the band room *THIS MEETING IS MANDATORY FOR ALL COMMITTEE CHAIRS/CO-CHAIRS.  We highly encourage all volunteers to attend!


We need GOLF CARTS to provide transportation for injured marchers, spectators that have difficulty getting to/from the parking lot to the stadium and for many of our chairs/co-chairs.  If you have a GOLF CART that you would be willing to LEND the program for the day, please contact us ASAP!

Many thanks to everyone who makes this event possible and for all of the work so many of you have already put into it!  We are excited to host this contest and get a chance to see many shows including that of our own hard-working RCG!  This is a FUN day at HSE!!
