3rd Annual Mount Pleasant Winterguard Competition
Our third annual Winterguard competition is scheduled for Saturday, February 24, 2018. This project, much like Showcase, is an “all hands-on deck” event. The money raised does help the winterguard, but it also benefits every other facet of the band program. We all benefit. It’s easy work. Essentially, we escort performing groups to and from their performance and warm-up areas. We also sell a bunch of food and random junk that guard people like to buy.
