Block List 2022

MARCHING CHIEFS BLOCK LIST 2022

Thanks to everyone completing an audition. We have taken as many students as possible. If you did not make Chiefs, we invite you to participate in the Campus Band with no audition required, or you may ‘open’ audition (early next week) for the Concert Band. Don’t be discouraged; please try again next year!

Regular Block Positions are designated by a letter (for each section) and a number. Alternator Positions are designated with “a” or “b” next to the block position assignment. Chiefs in these positions will serve as alternators for Pregame and Halftime. As the season progresses, we will try to add more positions to halftime shows. The pregame numbers can not be changed.

Percussion alternators perform at the discretion of the band directors and percussion technician.

Majorette and Color Guard alternators will perform at the discretion of the band directors and visual teams coordinator.

The next rehearsal (Thursday afternoon, 8/18) begins at 1:30p with sectionals at Chiefs Field. Then we have a full music rehearsal at 3:00p in Ruby Diamond Concert Hall. We will begin pregame drill at 6:00p at the practice field. Those late or absent will lose their Pregame position to someone else. Please be patient as the first order of business is to take attendance. Your cooperation will be appreciated.

Marching Chiefs Travel Fund

Magic happens when the Chiefs hit the road. They bring the sounds that unite Seminole fans everywhere, from the unrelenting war chant to the deeply moving “Hymn to the Garnet and the Gold.” They inspire our great athletic teams to “strive for victory,” and they create a bond among generations of band members that is cherished forever. Our goal is to spread the Seminole spirit by sending the Chiefs to additional away games. The Marching Chiefs have been excellent stewards of their financial resources, but additional support is needed if we are to expand our reach. Please consider making a contribution, large or small, to get the Chiefs on the road to additional games, to inspire more fans, and to stand strong with the team. Go ‘Noles! Go Chiefs!

Campaign for New Instruments

Initiated in 2013, the New Instrument Fund has already provided numerous top-quality instruments for our Marching Chiefs. But keeping the inventory in top condition will always be a priority.

Our students deserve equipment that will allow them to sound their very best. Your tax-deductible gift to the instrument campaign will be used to ensure that we keep the sound of the war chant ringing strong throughout Doak Campbell Stadium well into the future.
