Important Information! Please read all!

Great first couple of days.  Band kids have worked really hard.  The group is working well together.  Staff is very impressed up to this point! WE are off to a great start.  Come out next week and watch your kiddos at the end of rehearsals.

Please note the following important information


  • Bibber order form should already have been completed.  It is located on the blog post below.  All marchers (Not ColorGuard ) need to complete this ASAP
  • Marvin Ridge Marching Mavericks Summer Uniform

 

Our summer uniform will be used at the Parent Preview, first few football games, Matthews Alive Parade and as needed. It consists of a Show Shirt (which will be provided based on your Registration Form), shorts, white socks and ALL white tennis shoes.

 

To keep our group looking professional we ask that shorts be the same.  All are flat front shorts in DESERT KHAKI color.  Returning marchers should use shorts purchased the previous year as we have not changed styles.

GUARD MEMBERS DO NOT ORDER THESE SHORTS

 

Shorts can be ordered through Dickies online at: (you may find these at Walmart locations as well)
