Please check your school calendars for any possible conflicts BEFORE you submit your Show Sign Up form. PLEASE SUBMIT ONLY ONE SHOW SIGN UP FORM PER UNIT. Do not submit multiple sign ups. If you need to make a change in your schedule for some reason, PLEASE EMAIL RANDY WITH THE CHANGES. REPEAT: DO NOT SUBMIT MULTIPLE SIGN UPS. If you're not sure yours went through please email Craig or Randy and they will check the data base and let you know if you need to resubmit anything. Your cooperation on this will make our jobs much easier. REMEMBER TO PRINT OUT AT LEAST THREE COPIES OF YOUR REGISTRATION FORM BEFORE YOU CLOSE OUT THE PAGE. You need one copy to send to Cortney with your fees, one to turn in to your accounting office with your check request and one for your records. If you need a W9 form for your finance office, please email Cortney. She will send you one.
On the registration form you must complete all fields that have a RED ASTERISK next to them. If you are not sure of all of your musical selections when you submit your registration, just list what you know. Please remember you MUSTadhere to all copyright laws. Basically, if it's on YouTube you're good to go for guard. Percussion and Winds need to have a Permission To Arrange form on file with us. Remember, we're just trying to protect you AND the circuit.
Here are two important deadlines that we will adhere to this year:
November 22, 2015-Unit Registration Deadline- All paperwork and fees must be in to Cortney by this date. Fees can be mailed to Cortney (her address is on the form) or hand delivered to any board member at the LMEA Conference in Baton Rouge.

December 1, 2015-Show Sign Up Deadline- Your show sign up must be submitted on line by this date. Again, please submit only one form per unit. If you need to add, drop or change a show please email me directly and I'll make the change. ANY UNIT WHO TURNS THEIR SHOW SIGN UP FORM IN PAST THE DEADLINE WILL BE ASSESSED A $25 LATE FEE PER UNIT.
If you will be joining us as a Guest Unit this year, please follow the same procedures listed above. We ask that if you will be joining us this season as a guest unit that you have all of your paperwork and fees in to us AT LEAST ONE MONTH before the date of the show(s) that you want to attend. We welcome all units from MIA, GCGC or any other circuit to our shows in a Guest Unit capacity. Please let me know if you have any questions.
A big thanks to all of you in advance for all of the hard work and dedication that you put in for our activity. Please don't hesitate to contact any Board of Directors member at any time if you have a question or concern. That's what we're here for. Here are the links for registration and show sign up:
