2019 Alumni RamBand Referral Program

 

How this works...

 

1. You marched in the WCU Alumni RamBand at least once from 2014 through 2018, and you've registered for the 2019 band.

 

2. You recruit a WCU RamBand Alumni friend to participate in the 2019 band, who has not been in the Alumni Band from 2014 through 2018.  Your friend registers and tells us in the 'notes to merchant' at checkout that you referred them.

 

3. We refund $10 to you after you and your friend participate in the Alumni RamBand at Homecoming. 

 

Some notes :-)

-One Referral per previously participating Alumni RamBand member  

 

-Your RamBand friend can already be an official member of the BAA (we still have quite a few folks on the membership list who have not been in the previous Alumni RamBands the BAA has run).

 

-The name of referring friend must be in 'notes to merchant' at checkout for registrations made online before we get to music rehearsal on October 25th.  Any returning member who brings a friend on the 25th or 26th who qualifies for the program has to have registered themselves before rehearsals start on the 25th.

 

Any Questions?  Shoot an email to us at wcupabaa@gmail.com!

NEW FOR 2019 - Have Your Kids Join the Legacy Band!

Have your kids be a part of the 2019 Alumni RamBand by being a member of the Legacy Band!  

 

The Legacy Band is open to children of registered 2019 Alumni RamBand members that have not yet graduated from high school (ages 0-18).  They’ll march in the parade at the front of the Alumni RamBand, play a song on kazoos on their own, and will be welcome on the sidelines as the parents march with the RamBand at halftime.  **If your child plays a band instrument, and would like to play in the parade and the stands, that's fine!  They'll help with the younger kids' performance in the parade, jump back into the parade block, and then help on the sideline.  We'll ask about that stuff after you've registered!**

 

The cost is only $5 per child ages 2 and up (free for kids under age 2), and they’ll get a T-Shirt, ear plugs, a kazoo, and a seat in the stands with you in the Alumni RamBand!

 

Registration for your children is completed through this form.  Payment will be collected via invoices generated through our SquareUp store and sent to the email address you provide.  The deadline for registering your children and reserving a T-Shirt is Saturday, October 5th...we'll order a few extras, but they'll most likely be Youth sizes!
