The following message is from Dave:
I hope you are all doing well and staying safe. As we approach our first recording session this weekend, I wanted to quickly provide you with some information regarding how you can watch your child’s performance.
First and foremost, we will send out a link for everyone with the video we record. However, if you would like access to watching Mars Indoor Percussion’s performance, as well as other groups, awards ceremonies, etc., you can create an account with FloMarching. Once you click this link, you can create an account on the top right-hand corner. As an organization, we will have an account that the students can watch their performances on those Saturdays.
However, FloMarching only allows multiple devices to be used for streaming if they are on the same WiFi network, and only up to 12 devices total on one account. With that being said, if you would like to watch their performances, awards, etc., other than the video we send out, you will need to create your own account and pay for a monthly subscription. Monthly subscriptions are $30/month, or you can pay for a year which is $12.50/month. Again, this is totally optional, and you do not have to participate, but we wanted to provide everyone with the information just in case.
Currently, WGI plans to have the videos run on FloMarching from 9:00 am on Saturday until 11:59 pm on Sunday. Awards ceremonies and advancement options will be announced Sunday evenings of our shows. Our first “competitive” weekend is February 27th. We will know our placement Sunday night the 28th. On that weekend, you can view all of the performances, including Mars Indoor Percussion. This will follow suit with our other competitive weekends which are March 20th and March 27th. There will also be other upload dates for our local circuit, but they will not be competitive, and they will likely be the same videos we will use for WGI.
I understand this may be a lot of information to digest. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please enjoy your week!
