some of the Band Scholars eating and generally enjoying life
And of course a hallmark of the TBLE&B [as well as many Tiger Band Events] - good food enjoyed by the Band Scholars and some of our Band Friends

The much-anticipated and long-awaited decorating of BVII [aka Band Van Two] ~ indeed a "WOA" [aka Work of Art]

the "template" concept put into place

"test" painting - gosh - why are we trusting this to a Fledgling - even if it is Matthew
