The camp will begin at 2:00 on Saturday with all LVW members gathering in the auditorium for opening announcements and an overview of the weekend's rehearsal. Please plan on arriving at least 15 to 20 minutes early. We will conclude all of our activities by 4:00 PM on Sunday afternoon. Please check with your school’s director/LVW coordinator for travel plans to and from the rehearsal.
Please RSVP for the rehearsal, even if you are unable to attend but intend to participate in 2014. The RSVP is for all who will attend the camp, including registered members, non-registered or new members, staff, and parent helpers. The RSVP form is found on the LVW website's homepage at www.lutheranvanguard.org. Please note that there is a new question for students who ride the Shoreland bus. We want to know who is riding, and where you will be picked up.
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 Mt. Olive Lutheran Church. 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 FVL. It may be a bit chilly overnight at FVL, 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 bottle.
Don’t forget your instrument and music! If you will be using an LVW instrument (horn, baritone/euphonium, 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 2014, you will be given your music and other LVW equipment when you arrive.
Check back to this page occasionally. There may be more updates before the weekend.
See you soon!
