Tentative Preseason Schedule

(Updated as of 7/22/2020)

In order to fully accommodate CDC and UW recommendations for COVID-19, the 2020 preseason schedule is still being finalized.  The tentative schedule follows, and is subject to change.  

Preseason camp is required of all Western Thunder Marching Band members. During these rehearsals the fundamentals of marching, music, pre-game and the first halftime musical selections will be taught.  Camp begins 8/20/2020 for all drumline and auxiliary members, 8/20/2020 for all new members (brass and woodwinds), and 8/22/2020 for all remaining veteran band members. Camp will run through 8/23/2020.  

Band members living in University residence halls may move into their assigned rooms on UW Move-In Day, 8/19/2020. Breakfast and lunch during preseason camp will be provided for you. Dinner is on your own for section meals and activities. Washakie (the dining hall) is also open during camp to purchase meals.

Be prepared for the weather! Wear loose and comfortable clothing. Eat sensibly before coming to rehearsal! You should bring the following to rehearsal: hat, sunscreen, sunglasses, water bottle, etc. Athletic shoes are required for all marching and drill rehearsals. All wind players are required to bring a properly fitting lyre to hold the flip folder that UW Bands will provide. You may also bring your own flip folder if you have one.

The Western Thunder Marching Band practice field for camp is located on Frat Mall, on the west side of the Fine Arts building.
