NEWS, THURSDAY, OCTOBER 19, 1972 PAGE 15 FHS BAND TO PARTICIPATE IN SOUTHEASTERN CONTES1 On November 4th, the Florala Marching Wildcat Band will participate in the Southeastern Marching contest. Judges rate the band on per- formance, sound, drills, and overall appearence. Majo- rettes, colorguard, honorguard, and drum majorettes are graded and also receive ratings. Long, hard hours of re- hearsing and preparation is needed to make the over all performance perfect. Every band member must perfect his own part! In the previous years of '70 '71, the Wildcat Hand received superior ratings on all parts of their performance. Even though these trips were fun and en- joyable they were also edu- cational and an experience that was unforgetable. With November 4th just a- round the corner we hope that :he Wildcat Hand will once a- gain receive superior ratings!
