Deadline Extended to Win the MADE: Indoor Sweepstakes for Your Group

On-site Clinic to prep you for 2012 Indoor Season

With the kick-off of the USBands Indoor Season just a few days away, we have extended the deadline to enter the MADE: USBands Indoor Sweepstakes to Friday, February 17 when we will draw the Grand Prize Winners.  One colorguard and one percussion section will receive a clinic at their school at no charge to help them improve their program!

To enter, your unit must be entered to perform at one of the USBands 2012 Indoor events. It's that easy!  But time is running out and you must be registered for a show by Friday, February 17 to have a chance at receiving the free clinic for your group.!

USBands understands that it’s the journey that is the destination. It’s the experience that teaches you the life lessons that come from rehearsals three nights a week, weekend bus trips, contests, more rehearsal, folding floors, more rehearsal — you get the point.
This is why we’re planning to be with you on the journey of the 2012 USBands Indoor Colorguard and Zildjian Indoor Percussion Series season!
For USBands Indoor in 2012, it’s not just the contest or the score, but through our unique series of clinics and competitions leading up to the Championships, we will be presenting a whole new way to look at the indoor activity and providing fun, educationally-based events that will be exciting and provide a great showcase for your talent and your unit.
To kick off our 2012 Indoor Season we are running the MADE: USBands Indoor Sweepstakes where you’re guard or drumline will win a FREE clinic from a panel of experienced clinicians to help you improve your show before the main portion of the season.
Here are the fast facts:
•  One drumline and one colorguard registered for a 2012 USBands Indoor Colorguard or Zildjian Indoor Percussion Series contest will be drawn to receive an in-depth clinic from an experienced team of clinicians at your own school.
•  Your clinic will be held in February on your choice of date (availabilities of clinicians permitting)
•  Colorguard Clinic will include separate clinicians for movement, equipment, staging and effect
•  Percussion Clinic will include separate clinicians for battery, pit, visual (if applicable)
Second and third runners-up in the percussion portion of the MADE: USBands Indoor Sweepstakes will receive full sets of Vic Firth drumsticks and mallets and Remo drumheads for use in the 2012 USBands Indoor season.
Bringing an indoor show to life is a major undertaking. For guard it’s about body and movement, equipment, props, floors, flags, costumes. The list goes on and on and on.
For drum lines it’s about all the above minus equipment and flags — PLUS drums and electronics!
Take another step for making your 2012 season great by being part of the USBands Indoor Colorguard and Zildjian Indoor Percussion Series and experience the clinics, competitions and Championship events presented especially for you!  Register today for an event today and you’ll have a chance to win the MADE: USBands Indoor Sweepstakes for your guard or drumline!
