Our first competition is the South Bay Invitational at West High in Torrance on September 26, 2015.
West High School, 20401 Victor Street, Torrance, CA 90503
We will not be using buses this day. Students will be dropped off and picked up at West High in Torrance.
Carpools strongly encouraged and please come out and support us at our neighboring school. 🙂
Tournaments are typically an all day event. More details about performance time will be released on Mr. V’s Calendar based on availability which is usually a few days before the competition. We don’t know final schedule until about 3 days before competition since some bands add at the last minute.
Saturday’s weather is going to be warm (high 80s) as such please make sure the students begin to hydrate beginning tonight through Saturday.
Make sure you have some lunch right before you get to West High.
12:00 pm If anyone is available to help with uniforms or loading last minute items please find out from boosters or leadership if help is needed. (also see sign up genius list below, there are many opportunities to help.)

Parents to find parking for watching…it is much easier to park on the North side of Del Amo…same as easier taking your kids home as Victor is often blocked off by police.
Also note that there are many positions needing to be filled for this event, we cannot do it without your help~
