Note PadIn addition to all the band camp supplies listed on the Band Camp Flyer, all band members should also purchase a dot book or three-ring binder.  A dot book is a small, pocket-sized notebook that you can write down your drill sets in for quick reference on the field. Each student will be receiving their own drill pages, and may put them in protective sleeves in a binder. However, those binders eventually become a burden to carry around the field while you march and play your instrument, even if you use a strap. After you learn the drill, a dot book becomes much more convenient to carry around rather than a large binder. However, section leaders should always have the full drill pages (in protective plastic sleeves) in a binder at all times.

You can purchase a small notebook at any dollar store or office supply store. If you’d like, you can get a customized dot book with predesigned pages from MyDotBook.org. If you own an iPhone or an iPod Touch, there is also an application you can download from the iTunes store called DrillBook. Regardless of what you get, every student should have either their full drill pages or a dot book with them during each rehearsal.

Feel free to email Mr. Katona or Mr. Carattini with any questions you may have about band camp.
