Volunteers needed for CCCG Show

The GNODCA's Crescent City Color Guard is sponsoring the first competition of the Louisiana Winter Guard Season in Denham Springs, LA on January 26, 2013. Since we are sponsoring, the proceeds will go to our program and help with needed costs for the season. We need your help. It takes lots of people to work an event like this. We have different positions like concessions, door monitors, etc. and different shifts that need to be covered. It is a fun and rewarding experience.

Hi Magic Makers! PLEASE READ COMPLETELY

The staff has been working hard behind the scenes to make 2013 a memorable season for CCCG.

We know your academics and work are very important, so we scheduled rehearsals along with attempting to find a central rehearsal site to accommodate members traveling from throughout LA and the Gulf coast. We will rehearse twice a week, one will be a sectional at several locations on week nights and one on Sundays for all rehearse together with staging.

We have a busy schedule ahead of us. It is important to our success that you make an effort to be at the rehearsals. I know if we work together and focus on what we have to accomplish this can be a brilliant season. Remember, it's not the length of the time you rehearse, but the quality of your efforts during rehearsal that makes a great performance. Your local sectionals will be held by Mr. Mark (New Orleans), Mr. Dion (Houma), and Mr. Art (Lafayette) so pay attention to announcements for times and locations.

We're looking forward to sharing another wonderful season with you.
