2011 Fiesta Bowl

Dec 30, 2011 - Jan 2, 2012

 

So much work and excitement packed into 3 days! Friday was the band competition and the band played another awesome show. Our pit crew also amazed the judges by tebowing in the end zone and pretending they were an actual NASCAR pit crew. The show was so good that it won our pit crew the distinction of 2011 World Champions!

Saturday was the parade with lots of standing around and waiting but once it came time to play the O'Connor band delivered and took 2nd place in the parade! Saturday night all of the bands who participated in the parade were invited to Rawhide for an awards dinner and to ring in the New Year. It was great to see so many band geeks at one event!

Last but not least was the actual Fiesta Bowl on Monday. The O'Connor band was invited to unroll the flag on the field for the pre-game show which meant a long day of practicing how to pull a 100 yard long by 50 yard wide flag across a football field without letting it touch the ground! But all the hard work and sweat was worth it to be a part of a once in a lifetime opportunity.
