Students will arrive at the high school Saturday morning by 9:30 a.m. to check in their luggage and begin boarding the buses.

The winner of the Caribbean Cruise drawing will be announced at 9:45 a.m.   

Buses are scheduled to leave at 10 a.m., and arrive in New York Sunday afternoon at about 2:00 p.m.    Total travel time for the band will be around 28 hours.

The band is still some $10,000 short of  their fundraising goal.
For information on how you can help the band with their expenses for the trip, visit the band's web site at www.fayettevilleband.com.  There you'll find an address to send donations.

(Note:  Band boosters will begin loading the new trailer to transport instruments, uniforms and other equipment around noon today (Friday) by the band room.  The trailer will leave around 8 a.m. Saturday morning.)
