2017 Music in Motion Field Show Tournament
WELCOME: On behalf of the Ayala Band and Color Guard Boosters, thank you for coming to our 11th Annual “Music in Motion” Field Show Tournament! We are filled with anticipation and excitement and are so pleased you will attend!
Please make sure your parent chaperones and student leaders are aware of the location of our first aid station. First aid station is located west-side of the stadium near the spectator entrance gate. Please see any attendant for assistance in case of an emergency.
BUS/EQUIPMENT TRUCK PARKING:
Bus and equipment vehicle parking is pre-assigned and will be very limited on our campus. Vehicles will not be allowed on campus unless they have an authorized pass from our off-site check-in located at Litel Elementary School, 3425 Eucalyptus Ave, Chino Hills, CA 91709. Due to limited space on campus, these passes are limited to the pre-registered vehicles per the WBA application ONLY. We ask that all instructors and staff arrive on the school bus. If that is not possible, they will need to park their cars at off campus spectator parking lots. Please try to have trucks and buses arrive together.
It is highly recommended to take Chino Hills Pkwy exit from 71 Freeway. Please do not attempt to reach the check-in area via Grand Avenue and Peyton Drive. Directors and staff will need to use their official WBA Membership Badge for admission to the stadium. Performing student members will be hand stamped before exiting their busses. Wristbands for pit crew/parent helpers will be given to you in your check-in packet upon arrival per WBA regulations. These wristbands will allow entrance to the visitor side of the stadium ONLY. Any chaperones that wish to watch on the home side will be asked to purchase a spectator wristband from the ticket booth.
MUSIC WARM UP AREAS:
There are THREE assigned warm-up areas on the back fields. If you require additional time to warm-up, use the quad area outside the silent zones and play facing away from the stadium out of courtesy to the other performing ensembles. Please be aware of your assigned times for warm-up, staging, and performance.
Be sure to have adequate staff and means to assist the moving of your percussion equipment and props to and from the performance area. Motorized vehicles are NOT allowed on the field turf at any time.
See Maps provided in the kit.
1A/2A/3A bands have 13 minutes and 4A/5A bands have 15 minutes to take the field, perform, and exit the field. Please refer to the WBA contest rule book for further clarification.
The WBA now uses a software program called Competition Suite. Please refer to the WBA website under forms to make sure you are signed up for this.
The awards ceremony for 1A/2A/3A band will begin at approximately 5:00 PM. Please send your student leadership back to the “Staging Entrance” area by 4:30 PM. The awards ceremony for 4A and 5A will begin at approximately 9:45 PM. Please send your student leadership back at the “Staging Entrance” area by 9:15 PM. Trophies and awards will be given for the following:

SEATING ASSIGNMENTS FOR VISITOR STANDS:
ALL performing members are to sit on the visitor side of the stadium, until that seating area is full, at which time your school will be directed to a selected seating area.
There will be an assortment of food, drinks, and snacks for participants and spectators. NO GRILLS OR OPEN FIRES ARE ALLOWED ON CAMPUS, STADIUM OR PARKING LOTS. This is a fundraising event and we encourage all participants to support our event by purchasing food at the concession stands in the stadium. To pre-order meals for your band group, please call Julie Montgomery at 909-263-4944 or email at email@example.com.
We have a wonderful hospitality area for staff members to eat and relax located at the east side of the stadium near the staging area. Please join us for complimentary food and drinks. Admission to this area are for those staff members who have an official WBA staff pass ONLY.
Due to the number of bands in attendance, parking is limited. There is preferred paid spectator parking at $8.00 and free handicapped parking on campus. Additional spectator parking lots are available at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints on Eucalyptus Avenue and on the right side of the Chino Hills Community Center across from Ayala. There is also street parking within walking distance to the school. Please let your parents and boosters know that absolutely no additional vehicles will be allowed to park on campus with your buses including extra chase food vehicles. Drop off for food can be accommodated but your vehicles will be escorted in and out to a drop off zone only. We appreciate the cooperation with our volunteers.
Tickets will be available at the ticket booth near the stadium’s west entrance. Prices are $12.00 for adults and $7.00 for seniors 65 and older, active Military personnel in uniform or with ID, and children 5-12 years old. Children 4 and under are free.
Tournament programs will be on sale at the ticket booth and throughout the stadium for $5.00. Please encourage your spectators and students to purchase a program.
We have retained the services of several vendors located inside the stadium gates. Encourage your students and parents to patronize and support all the vendors at the tournament.
LOST & FOUND:
Lost and found is available and will be located at the ticket booth.
TRASH & RECYCLE DISPOSAL:
Every effort is made to provide trash and recycle containers that are easy to locate and access. Please remind your students to use these receptacles when disposing of all trash and recyclables.
Thank You for Choosing the Ayala Band and Color Guard’s 11th Music in Motion Field Show Tournament
