recruiting marching team members!
dear all,

if you are interested in joining the marching team this year for the practically most important event of the year to KRS--Sports' Day Marching Competition--then you're in luck!

we're now recruiting new marching members! we will be having marching practices at Sahara Field(it's somewhere near school, we'll bring you if you're coming. you can just wait at the school's back gate, it's real near) from 8.00A.M. sharp to 10.30A.M.(i promise to end on time) on Monday till Saturday from 7th to 11th of June! yes, that's FIVE days a week, because we need the intensive practice to train all of you new and old members!

so, lemme repeat :
venue : Sahara Field.
time : 8.00A.M. SHARP to 10.30A.M.
dates : 7th to 11th of June, 2011. (only five days/ a week throughout the whole holidays.)

now, you might want to ask WHY we're doing this all week long during the holidays and at such an early time too, right? here are your answers:
  1. the morning sun is proven to be healthier for your skin.(VITAMIN A!) plus, it's more crowded at the field during the evening and not everyone is free in the evenings.
  2. waking up early = sleeping early = we're taking care of your health. (no, this isn't a joke. it's actually common sense.)
  3. intensive marching training because we haven't had an official marching practice up till now, and by May, we'll be desperately needing more practices than ever to sharpen our skills.
  4. continuous training is good, especially for new members, because this would mean you can remember quicker as you practice more. 
for those of you who has parents who're against this because you're new, don't worry! convince your parents that it's completely safe because it will be in the middle of a neighborhood and it's not a worn-down, deserted place. you'll see for yourselves! (there are aunties and uncles exercising there every time we go for practice. plus it's close to school.)

as for the old and experienced marching team members from last year, your attendance is compulsory! (it's been some time since we trained you guys properly, anyways) 

things to bring / dress code for marching practices :
  1. KRS gloves (you should all have a pair since you're required to purchase the uniform if you're already in KRS. if you don't have those, go get a pair! Outpost is relocated at 1Utama and i believe it's somewhere near Parkson now. new wing.)
  2. water/food (this would be optional, especially the food part. but water is most likely necessary because you would dehydrate easily. it's strongly recommended that you do bring at least a small bottle of water.
  3. dress code/what you should wear : trackbottoms/long pants and t-shirt. nothing too revealing for girls. you CAN wear slippers, if you're ready to burn your feet on the hot cement. so yes, you're not advised to wear flip-flops, sandals or slippers. best would be sports shoes. boots would be unnecessary.
spread the news!
