VISTA RIDGE MARCHING FESTIVAL RESULTS
On Saturday, October 7 , the Marching 100 performed at the Vista Rige Marching Festival in Fredericksburg, TX. At this competition, we placed 13th out of 22 bands, and 4th out of the 9 5A schools. We have received very constructive feedback from the judges at this contest and the M100 staff is looking forward to applying this feedback as we prepare for UIL!

ELIGIBILITY CHECK THIS WEEK!
The next eligibility check will be THIS FRIDAY, OCTOBER 14 AT 4:25PM. YOU CAN STILL LOSE YOUR ELIGIBILITY EVEN IF YOU PASSED THE FIRST ELIGIBILITY CHECK. ANY STUDENT WITH A GRADE BELOW A 70 IN AN ON-LEVEL CLASS WILL BECOME INELIGIBLE THE FOLLOWING WEEK. NO FOOTBALL GAMES, NO MARCHING CONTESTS.
STUDENTS ARE STILL REQUIRED TO ATTEND REHEARSALS IF THEY ARE INELIGIBLE. In the event that a student regains their eligibility, attending rehearsals will prevent the need to catch up after three weeks.
Students that had failing grades in an on-level class on Friday, September 22, will become ineligible beginning on Friday, September 29 at 4:25pm. These students will not be allowed to attend the following events:
9/29 FB vs. Elgin
9/30 Hill Country Marching Festival
10/6 FB @ Rouse
10/7 Vista Ridge Marching Festival
10/13 FB vs. Connally
10/14 UIL Region 8 Marching Contest
Students will be able to regain eligibility if all on-level grades are a 70 or above on the date of the next eligibility check, which is Friday, October 13. Eligibility will be reinstated on Friday, October 20th at 4:25pm.
Since Friday, October 13 is the last day of the 9 week grading period, STUDENTS CAN STILL LOSE THEIR ELIGIBILITY AT THIS TIME! It is imperative that all students continue to monitor their grades, even if they passed the first eligibility check.
All students that are eligible at the next eligibility check will be eligible for the rest of the semester.
10/13 HOME FOOTBALL GAME VS. CONNALLY HS
Our next football game of the season will be a home football game against Connally HS (Pflugerville) at Tiger Field. You can view the itinerary for the game by clicking HERE, or by checking the “Itineraries” tab on the front page of the band website!
NOTE: Before the game, we will go to the practice field for our full band picture.
PLEASE EMAIL firstname.lastname@example.org IF YOU HAVE ANY UNIFORM ISSUES!
10/14 UIL REGION 8 CONTEST *UPDATE*
The Marching 100 will be performing at the Vista Ridge Marching Festival this Saturday, October 14 at 4:15pm!
*THE ITINERARY HAS BEEN UPDATED* After consulting with other band directors in the area on how they are handling the eclipse, we have decided that we WILL HAVE REHEARSAL ON THE DAY OF UIL AT THE STADIUM. WE WILL SIMPLY NOT LOOK AT THE SUN AND EVERYTHING WILL BE FINE!

10/16 M100 REHEARSAL
Due to an unanticipated conflict, we will NOT have rehearsal on Friday, October 20. Instead, we will rehearse on Monday, October 16 from 5:00pm-7:00pm. I apologize for any inconvenience that may arise due to the schedule change.
VOLUNTEERS STILL NEEDED

M100 AFTER SCHOOL REHEARSAL SCHEDULE
The M100 calendar has been updated with all of the rehearsals for the upcoming school year. You can access the calendar on beltonmarching100.com/calendar. Here are a few things to keep in mind regarding these rehearsals.
Any anticipated conflicts need to be communicated to a director ASAP! If you know of any conflicts, please email email@example.com.
There are various construction projects occurring between the band hall and our practice field. More effort will be needed to arrive at the practice field on time for rehearsals.
Throughout the season, we will be hosting guest clinicians to assist in elevating the quality of our program. These individuals have experienced a great deal of success in the marching activity. In order to make the most of these opportunities, we MUST have quality attendance at these rehearsals. Please avoid conflicts with the following dates.
