We are still seeking new members for 2015! It is not too late to join, so members are strongly encouraged to bring someone new to the April camp, even if the new students are not sure if they will join for this summer. There is no obligation to attend camp, and there is no cost to attend the camp.
There will be a bus traveling from Appleton to camp on Saturday. It will leave the FVL parking lot at 12:15 PM. Please do not be late. FVL students should arrive no later than 11:45 to make sure the bus and all equipment is loaded before the 12:15 departure time. The bus will also bring students back to Appleton on Sunday following the rehearsal. It will arrive at FVL at approximately 5:45 PM.
Please note that there will not be a bus from Shoreland for this camp.
Please RSVP for the rehearsal, even if you are unable to attend but intend to participate in 2015. The RSVP form is found on the LVW website's homepage at www.lutheranvanguard.org.
We have a number of new registrations over the past few weeks! Thanks for taking care of this very important task. Some of our students may have not yet registered for LVW 2015. Please click on the "LVW 2015 Online Registration Form" link on the "Join" page. Once you have registered, you will begin to receive the billing statements and other important information.
You may bring forms and payments to this rehearsal. We have many of our student forms already. Thank you for your cooperation in getting the forms in on time! If you still need to turn in any forms (Medical, Permission, Conduct), links to the forms can be found on the LVW "Join" page.
A Financial Assistance Form and information has also been posted to the "Join" page. If you are in need of assistance, please check that information. We would like all financial assistance requests to be brought to this camp if they have not been sent to us already.
Pack a brown-bag supper for Saturday evening. Sunday breakfast/lunch will be provided by LVW. You will not need to bring any money for the meals - they are included in your fees for the year. There will be lemonade/Gatorade/water available. We prefer that you do not drink soda (pop) during LVW rehearsals.
We will be attending Saturday evening worship at Morning Star Lutheran Church in Jackson. Casual clothes are acceptable for this worship service.
You will need to pack an overnight bag with a change of clothes, overnight gear (Sleeping bag/blanket/pillow/air mattress/etc.), personal items (towel, soap/shampoo, deodorant, etc). We will be sleeping overnight at KML. It may be a bit chilly overnight so an extra blanket may be a good idea.
For marching rehearsals, you will need to have comfortable shorts or sweats. Please don’t wear “jeans” for marching/visual rehearsals. You will also need a pair of tennis shoes for use on the gym floor. You may also want to bring a water jug.
Don’t forget your instrument and music! If you will be using an LVW instrument (mellophone, baritone, tuba), you will need to bring your own mouthpiece. Reed players, please make sure you have a few working reeds for the rehearsal.
If this is your first rehearsal for 2015, you will be given your music and other LVW equipment when you arrive.
See you this weekend!
