State Championships Update:
-If we place in the top 6 at Regionals on October 21st, we will advance to State Championships the next weekend at Bowling Green High School.

-Because our performance in Bowling Green will likely be early in the day, we will be leaving PHS on Friday Night, stopping for dinner along the way, and staying the night in the Bowling Green area.

-Since this is also senior night at Paris, our seniors will stay through halftime at the football game, and will meet us at our hotel later that evening.

-I have sent hotel info via classroom and email to Parents/Guardians, but feel free to email me if you did not get that.

-Depending on how many adults will be driving our seniors down that evening post-halftime, there will be one or two extra rooms in our group, however, I can also provide a link to the hotel's website if any other parents wish to come along.

-IF YOU BOOK SEPARATELY FROM US: Please note that we will not know whether or not we advance to State until the week before; therefore, I recommend booking a room with the free cancellation option just in case.
