WDMB - 2014 Tournament of Bands, Group III, Atlantic Coast Champions!!!!!
WHAT A SEASON!!! Every week we saw scores that came down to a tenth to Southern Regional or a couple of tenths to WD. And finally.... a half of a tenth! Each of the top three bands won two of the six caption awards. WD just hung tough and when the dust settled took the title. Our fifth title!

Looking ahead, there are still 4 possible football games and the West Cape May Christmas parade before this season is complete. While our largest focus is usually on our TOB competitions, we must now keep up our energy and attendance until the end. Students who do not meet these final performance obligations will not receive any band awards/honors. This is not the time for students to disappear. The full band has obligations and just because they are “only football games” students are not to schedule other events or create conflicts. Every performance is important and every member is obligated to be in attendance!
This week we have only one rehearsal on Wednesday 6pm-8pm. The band will be making audio recordings of the field show. Friday we have playoff Football at Glassboro HS. FYI - For anyone going to the game, Rowan University will be hosting William Patterson Univ. simultaneously right across the street which means parking will be difficult by game time.
