Dear Buchanan Varsity Guard Parents/Guardians,

The Buchanan Varsity Guard will be attending several SJVCGPR Shows, WGI Bakersfield, and WGI Union City during the 2019 Season. Here is a brief overview of our competitive season: 

1/26 @ Clovis East
2/8 @ Buchanan
2/15 WGI Bakersfield @ Mira Monte H.S.
3/8 @ Clovis North
3/15-3/17 WGI Union City Show @ James Logan H.S.
3/30 SJVCGPR Championships @ Clovis North

The total field trip fee for the direct costs (transportation, festival fees, lodging, etc.) associated with this field trip is $225, which is due by February 15th, 2019. Please complete and submit the trip form (link below) by Monday, January 28, 2019. If you are unable to pay this fee in full or in part, please indicate that on the trip form.

The field trip fee will cover: 

  • Charter bus transportation to WGI Bakersfield

  • Rental Van transportation to Union City

  • Two hotel nights for Union City Trip

  • Buca Di Beppo Dinner on Union City Trip

  • Performances at SJVCGPR & WGI Shows

  • Some meals and snacks through the season

The students will need to pay for:

  • Some meals on the WGI trips.

  • Show Souvenirs (Optional)

We encourage all students (and parents!) to participate in current fundraisers. This is a great way for students to earn trip credit to offset their trip expenses. 

These trips and performances are an important part of the overall winterguard experience and are a culmination of all of the hard work the students have done throughout the entire season. The student’s participation is expected as part of the commitment they made at the beginning of the season.

We need parent chaperones to make these trips a success. Please fill out the chaperone section of the trip form below if you are interested in chaperoning.

When available, current itineraries can be found on the website under the ‘Events’ menu. If you have any questions regarding these travel experiences, please e-mail us.

This will be a fun and educational experience for our students. We appreciate your support!

Respectfully yours,
