If you are driving up to auditions this weekend, there will be a road closure due to the City of Beloit’s Christmas Parade Friday, November 23. The parade will cross 4th Street and it will be blocked off from 5pm – 7:30pm. Please click on the link below for directions to Beloit Memorial High School by going up and around the parade route.
If you will be arriving before 5pm (registration starts at 4pm)or after 7:30pm, there will be no road closure to worry about.
If you have any questions or problems, please call us at 815-540-9737.
When you arrive:
Bring your luggage into the gym.
Proceed to check in and look for the registration lines. Get into the appropriate line, either “Pre-Paid” or “Pay at the Door/Walk In.” You will receive a wristband that you MUST wear all weekend. You will also receive your free Regiment Auditions t-shirt and your audition paperwork. PLEASE DO NOT LOSE YOUR PAPERWORK!! If you do, you will have to have it all re-done which will delay your audition. If you have only paid for an audition packet please get in the “Pay at the Door/Walk In” line to pay for your registration fee. The fee is $125 for new students and $100 for returning vets.
For those that sent your picture in, you are done with check in. Feel free to mingle around and start meeting some new friends!
If you didn’t send your picture in, you will be sent to another line in which you must wait to have your picture taken. You will not receive your paperwork until Saturday morning and therefore cannot audition until then.
The following numbers are for use starting on Thursday before and through the camp:
Cell #1: 815-540-9737
Cell #2: 815-621-8144
Cell #3: 702-325-5527
Here are some quick reminders:
If you haven’t already, please be sure to let us know of your arrival and departure times. This is for everyone, but will also help us to notify the Van Galder bus company of how many buses they may need on Sunday. You can fill out the information here: https://www.regiment.org/shuttle. If you’re a percussionist who is coming to the following weekend, you can fill it now as well.
For those flying in and taking the Van Galder bus, the stop for this weekend is South Beloit, IL. (The stop for Percussion auditions is Elgin, IL.) Once you arrive at the designated bus stop, we will pick you up there. You do not need to call us to let us know you have arrived. We will be utilizing buses from Pioneer and the Colts Drum & Bugle Corps and will be constantly be going to BMHS until everyone is picked up. However, if it’s been over a 1/2 hour and no bus has arrived, please call us on one of the numbers above. We will also drop you off at the same bus stop on Sunday as well.
Unfortunately at BMHS our cell phone reception in the building is spotty at best. So make sure to try all three numbers above if you need to reach us. If you have a quick message or question, text messaging might get answered faster.
