Marching Shoes: All members must have WHITE band shoes, not nursing shoes or any other substitute. If you already have white band shoes, you are all set – no need to get new ones. If you need shoes, you will need to purchase a pair at check-in. The cost will be around $34. If you need new shoes, bring cash or checks to check-in made out to Robert Kapp and Associates. All shoes will be shipped directly to Murray State and passed out at a rehearsal. All shoes must be fitted and paid for by Aug 14th. After that date, contact a Uniform Officer so we can place your own private order. (You will pay more, because of shipping/etc.) There is a huge penalty for not having the correct footwear.
Band Jackets can be ordered @ check in (optional purchase).
Family Football Season Tickets will also be on sale at check-in (optional purchase).
