... as is the bi-annual habit of your
Tiger Bands and the Band Scholars ... we do a little work on the
Band Van [in this case BVIII] - plus a few other assorted items
the first Saturday after classes have started. Earlier today, we
had a great crew helping with these special projects, and there
follows a Mini-Dig Gal [aka Small Digital Gallery] of their work
And because unlike many places in
today's society ... institutional memory "runs long" with your
Tiger Bands ... we must remember the very early days of the "ME" [aka
Modern Era starting in 1993] of our Tiger Bands when Floyd hauled
our I/E around ... then the great years when Gem Alumnus Richard
Jackson, gave of his time [and Ram Jet] to haul our I/E around ...
then the great BV [aka Band Van] Masters of yesteryear [and today]
... whether it was BVI, BVII or now BVIII ... Mitchie, Little
Jason, Dear Lucas, the incomparable Dewey and now Fluffy [and a

BVIII Renovations and Work
What a great group of Band Scholars!
"You Had Me At Grrr..."
Band is our Business ... and
Business is Good
[Left] ... ah-ha ... work in
progress ... clearly visible [among several Band Scholars helping]
the inimitable Miss Stuck [right] and Fledgling Jacob [left]
[Above] ... and talk about
special ... what about Elder Scholar Lauren ... artist-player
extraordinaire ... with a paint brush in her hand?
... Hmmm... why would Fluffy
[Far Left], aka Travis R. Mazurek, cherished Director's Assistant
for your Tiger Bands be standing with a large roll of green
"turf"? Why would Evan-James, Travis, Eric and Fledgling Kendall
be cutting the afore-mentioned "turf"? A mystery indeed ...
Left ... why the heckers would
we have six rolls of green "turf" rolled up in Band Central
Right ... why the heckers would
we have "faux goal posts" suspended from the ceiling of Band
Perhaps you should come to
the Home-Opener on September 6?
Right ... Miss Courtney and Miss
Haley working on BVIII [and doing a great job - perhaps unlike
... what could the amazing Crater be doing with his comrades?
... and then as a special [and new
feature] of today's bi-annual BV III Reno and Work Day ... Miss
Courtney, Miss Haley and the extraordinary Evan-James, Student
Composer-In-Residence for our Tiger Bands, organized several "M&G"
[aka Meet and Greet] games for the participants. In no way will
this supplant our annual TBLE&B [aka Tiger Band Leadership Event
and Barbecue] which this year will be on Friday, September 14 -
hosted by Band Friend James [Koeppe] at the Alpine Challenge
Course with a great meal following for the Band Scholars and
Special Band Friends. Our Work Day ended with a delightful little
A "Quarter Note"
[or so they said ???]
Fledglings Kenny, Jacob, Kendall, Tim & Taylor
[getting ready for the "FFBS" (aka Full Fledgling Body Spelling)
which shall probably take place at Homecoming]
Thanks & Thanks
... to the Band Scholars
[who gave of their Saturday to help]
... to all of the Friends of our Tiger Bands
[we neither could nor would survive without you]
