The field was never put in for the band to practice on.  The parking lot that will go in next to the softball/baseball facility will be football field dimensions for the band to practice on.  The thing with the bad and field-turfing had to do with the district trying to get marching contest moved here.

Maybe the band should learn how to play Cherokee correctly before trying to get the marching contest here.  :laugh:

PN-G is not a good location for marching contest, too many industrial noises (trains, plants etc).  LCM does a good job with it and it is a nice quiet setting, it should stay there IMO.

I like to hear it fast or slow...As long as it goes along with a touchdown!

Not according to the band director, he said they slowed it down for the Indian Spirit and the Indianette officers and twirlers...

I'd love to be able to practice on the new turf. We got to a couple times this year. Im sure thats much more comfortable than our up-and-coming parking lot. Never mind the fact that there will still be a football field-sized area next to the parking lot (according to the revised plans under the high school renovations thread) that we could easily march on, we get a parking lot.
The thing about being an Indian is that you're an Indian, no matter what. It doesn't matter if you play soccer or a tuba, it doesn't matter if you're on the football team or the drill team, it doesn't matter if you lead the cheers or the jeers. You're still part of that "Honor, Pride, & Tradition."

We still march on the ant-infested field. They spray the field, and the directors want us to look out for the beds, but we still end up ant-bit.

Even after considering this, I prefer the ant-infested field to a parking lot, and according to the plans, there will still be a sizable field next to the proposed parking lot. I know for a fact that Im not the only one who doesnt want to get stuck on concrete. Grass is much cooler in the summer and much easier to walk on, even when its uneven. Besides, we would be going from practicing on a flat, hard surface to performing on an uneven, soft surface at away games. It seems to me that this would be a detriment to our performance abilities.

Is the turf field pretty smooth or is it more like marching on a grass field? I have not walked out on to it yet so I really have not paid close attention to the texture.

Its sort of like walking on a trampoline, but the effect is not as noticable. You can definitely tell its not dirt because you can feel the rubber bounce back when you step on it, and that has an effect on your equilibrium. You can walk on it comfortably, but it will throw you off at first.

Having stepped out on to it, I understand why the football team prefers astro-turf. Im sure it would be easier to land on.

You mean prefer the Field Turf?   The old AstroTurf in the Dome was basically like playing on concrete.

Yes. Sorry about that.
