We are posted at the Carson Park sign on the corner of Menomonie and Water street.
We are setting up at 9am on Sunday. We should be done approximately between 12:30pm and 1:30pm, depending on the amount of runners, stamina, and whatever else might be going on. Let the good times roll!
WHAT ARE WE DOING
We will be playing pep band music, some jazz band tunes (?) and then blasting music through our speaker system. We are looking for a generator if anyone has one we can borrow for the morning.
Bring your instrument home with you this weekend and bring it with you on Sunday.
Students should park either at the Clarion Hotel and ride the shuttle (no idea how this works), or park in the Hobbs Ice Arena parking lot (tell the cops you are with the band) and then walk to the Carson Park Sign.
The marathon is providing some water and snacks. Ren will bring a cooler with pop/water. If people want to bring other food or snacks to share that would be great. Depending on the weather you might want to bring a sunshade/canopy, camping chair, etc.
