Travel Update: Whistler Marching Band Trip, Year 2020 Jr. & Sr. Music Tours

🇨🇦Marching Band Trip to Whistler: June 30 – July 1🇨🇦

Reynolds Marching Band has received an invitation to participate in the Canada Day Parade in Whistler, B.C. Students will be staying at the amazing Westin Resort & Spa Whistler Mountain. They will have the opportunity to enjoy the Canada Day weekend celebrations as well as the biking and hiking trails in Whistler.

We are planning to depart on the first ferry Sunday, June 30 and return the evening of July 1. The cost of the trip is $195.00 thanks to sponsorship by the Whistler Chamber of Commerce. Trip cost includes ferry costs, bus transportation, and hotel accommodation at Whistler. Students will be responsible for their meals and spending money.

The goal for the trip is to have a well-balanced musical ensemble first and foremost. With that being said, we require at least 45 students (50 students MAX can fit on the bus) to travel. Currently we have 30 students already committed to the trip with forms and payments in (Thank you!!!). Trip forms were originally distributed 2 weeks ago in band classes but here they are again should they be caught in a backpack “vortex” somewhere… 🙂

In order to make booking arrangements for this trip and to confirm intent to travel by our students, we need you to please return the form below with a cheque for $195 by Friday, May 17th. Trip forms and payment are required for your student to be put on the list. The trip payment is non-refundable (unless the trip is cancelled) and there will be no students added to the list after the deadline. The payment and travel list is required by this date so we can confirm final trip numbers to the hotel in Whistler and to secure the bus contract.
