2015 K-State Marching Band - New Members and Vets: Confirm your membership in the 2015 Pride of Wildcat Land

A Note to KSUMB Alumni from Dr. Tracz

Dear KSUMB Alum,

I am writing to invite you back this year for the September 19th Alumni Band Day now known as “SUDLER DAY”! As you know, the “Pride” has been awarded the prestigious Sudler Trophy for 2015. This award acknowledges, recognizes, and awards outstanding contributions and the highest of standards and qualities in collegiate marching bands. The K-State Marching band is now in an elite status with 29 other outstanding bands from across the country. This is not a “we’re number 1” award, instead it is justification of literally decades of growth, development, and quality from the complete history of this marching band program. YOU are an integral and very important part of this award and we’d like you to share the glory and honor with us all on September 19th, 2015. The SUDLER family will be in attendance and will present the trophy to us at half time of the game. Many dignitaries from the past will be here to receive the Sudler Trophy along with 1500 high school band students (Band Day!!), 400 members of the 2015 KSU Marching band, and 250 Alumni band members. The past, present, and the future will be here to receive “Our” award!

We have a very “special” t-shirt and ball cap as part of the uniform for the day for you, as well as other special events and experiences. You can also purchase tickets for your family members using a special code from Athletics Director, John Currie, for $20 each ticket a pretty amazing price for a football ticket these days. That time period will end so you need to act quickly, I have 250 Alumni band seats/tickets, and a limited number of “family” tickets available.

Register now at http://ksualumniband.org and pass the word. We’d love to have you all back for this once in a lifetime award presentation! You’ve earned it!!

Director of the Pride
Dr. Frank Tracz
