Dear Band Parents & Supporters,

We would like to compile a list of trucks, trailer, and drivers who might be willing to help transport Band equipment or props to various competitions. One important goal this year is to have a backup vehicle and trailer for each of our primary vehicles and trailers in the event someone has mechanical trouble or cannot attend an event. At this point we are only trying to find out who is interested and what sizes of trucks and trailers may be available. You may or may not be asked to drive or provide a trailer depending on the Band's needs. We sincerely appreciate your willingness to help.

The categories are:

  • HEAVY 3/4 ton or 1 ton for Band Trailer (preferably with large trailer towing experience-many of the places we will be going are difficult to maneuver in)
  • 1/2 Ton or larger for props/percussion
  • 1/2 ton or larger for Gator/drum major stands
  • 6x 10 or larger enclosed cargo trailer for percussion
  • 6 x 20 or larger flatbed for props

If you would like to have your name and/or equipment added to our list, Please email Tracy Bell at iluvfarming@netzero.com or call 816-633-8824. Please include your Name, Phone number, email address (if applicable) and the type of truck or equipment you are willing to furnish.

Thank you for your generous support of our Band.

 In an effort to help parents to be informed, Band Boosters has established an e-mail group. This is used to advise people of upcoming Band Booster meetings and give a heads-up on band events. Note: Ken will give information on band events to the kids - this e-mail is a second line of communication for parents. If you are interested in being on the mailing list, send an email to odessabandboosters@yahoo.com
