We have Two opportunities for Alumni and Students to play together:
Sep 2 (Saturday) 11am vs PSU
Sep 9 (Saturday) 7pm Vs Minnesota
Who can come:
Any Alumni, family or friends. BUT! If any of those family or friends are high school students, please contact us as we have to comply with NCAA recruiting rules.
We have decided to go back to T-shirts. If you have an old band T shirt, that will be fine. If you need a T shirt we will be able to supply you with one.
Hat will be Optional. If you have a black baseball hat feel free to bring it.
We will be making the music available ahead of time. You will get a link to it with the game day details. We are asking that you bring your own copies, this will save us a lot of time before the game, and also allow you to print it as big as you need, or just use your phone on a lyre, if you’re into that kind of thing. You will be responsible for figuring out how to mount your phone to the lyre.
Optional Donation (non-current students):
After talking to several alumni, we’ve decided to make a change. Up until now all the costs of having us at the game (food, office staff, etc.) has come out of the band budget. Everyone I talked to felt strongly everything the Alumni band does should be in support of the students and we shouldn’t be using money that would otherwise be going to them. We also understand that money is tight for many people, and we don’t want that to be the reason someone can’t come to an event. Therefore, we have decided to ask for an optional donation of $10. That will help us break even on the game-day costs. We will take cash or check the day of the game. Checks can be made out to OSU Bands.

If you are coming from out of town for this one you may want to consider a hotel due to the early call time. Generally speaking the hotels in town raise their prices on game weekends, but you can often find reasonable deals in Albany and Lebanon.
