May 20-22 Colt Cadets Overnight Details
9:00 pm Friday night through 2:30 pm Sunday
Jefferson Middle School, 1105 Althauser Avenue, Dubuque, IA
$20 at the door

Please arrive at Jefferson at 7:30 pm on Friday night to check-in, help unload, and meet with your section. Rehearsal will begin promptly at 9pm, but there is lots to do before we begin! We will sleep in the gym, and eat off the Cadets truck all weekend. The cost for rehearsal is $20 at the door (cash, check and visa/mastercard are accepted), and please be prepared to turn in any outstanding paperwork.

Parents, we need help throughout the weekend! We will accept any and all help! We'd like to ensure we have at least 8 folks for each meal (consider 2 hours of prep, 1 hour to serve a meal, and 1 hour clean up). We will also be sewing uniforms and fitting shakos all weekend, along with other projects.

Please bring:
- Spandex athletic shorts for uniform fitting (except color guard)
- Music (you will want a hard cover binder with many plastic sleeves for the summer)
- Dot Book (Index Card Notebooks with wide Rings and a long shoe string)
- Sunscreen, Hat, & Sunglasses (guard may wear bandanas)
- Instrument & Mouthpiece if possible
- Overnight supplies (sleeping bag, pillow, towel, shower supplies, 2 changes of clothes.)
- ONE-GALLON WATER JUG (red in color)

Please prepare to dress in layers! Weather could be hot or cold, wet or dry. Be prepared for anything! This means t-shirt, shorts, wind or sweat pants, sweatshirt, and light jacket. Tennis Shoes are a must! No jeans please. You may want a spare pair of tennis shoes and multiple pairs of socks if it's wet outside.

Please notify Matt of your schedule if they are unable to attend the whole weekend, and come and go as you are available. It is better for a student to attend some of camp than none of camp.
