        • Competition starts at 8 AM
        • Our competition time slow is 10:16 AM
        • Parking at the Dome: $15.00 (and is good for the entire day and night)
        • Entrance for spectators at the Dome: $17.00
      • After prelims, everybody is kicked out of the stadium. If parents plan on watching finals (regardless of whether or not we compete in it) the band will go no matter what.
      • Finals:
