On the way to band camp, we will stop for lunch at Arby’s just outside of Circleville. Sunday morning, the seniors, staff and chaperones will have breakfast at Bob Evans in Jackson. Students will need to bring spending money to cover the cost of these TWO meals (approximately $15-$20).


Thursday evening, August 7th, will be the annual Senior Dinner. Senior students and directors will attend this year’s dinner at Ponderosa in Jackson. The seniors may want to pack a casual outfit to wear for this event such as khaki shorts and golf shirts for the guys and sundresses or capris and a dressy top for the girls.

You must make your reservation in advance at a cost of $15 per student, which includes tip. This dinner for your student will be buffet style and includes: An array of fresh vegetables and fruit, plus soups, salads, appetizers and desserts. There is also a variety of seafood, beef, chicken and pasta dishes. Beverage selection includes unlimited soft drinks or iced tea.

We still have some volunteer opportunities available for Emerald City Games, to assist with parking, tickets and ushering for the event.

The event will take place on Monday July 28th at Coffman stadium. All sign ups are completed on Sign-up Genius.

This event helps raise money for Dublin City Schools and helps maintain our facilities as well as is one of the biggest concession fund raising opportunities for the Dublin Music Boosters, which help supports the music programs for all of the Dublin Schools.
Your help is greatly appreciated and all volunteers will get a chance to see part of the show.
Please check out the links below and sign up where you feel most comfortable.

Group Ticket Order Available for Dublin City Schools

Dublin Music Boosters would like to encourage band members and families to attend the Emerald City Games Drum Corp International (DCI) show at Coffman Stadium, Monday, July 28th 7pm. Some of the best Drum and Bugle Corps in the United States will be there, and this will be one of their final events before the DCI National Finals in Indianapolis in early August. For more info, visit

This event has RESERVED SEATING.  If we buy tickets as a group we will save money and also be able to sit together and demonstrate pride in our Band community.

The online form enables you to buy tickets as part of our group. 

  • We encourage ANYONE – students, parents, friends, alumni – to buy tickets.  This is a Dublin City Schools sponsored event.
  • The bulk ticket price will save you $2 from the price at the door, and $2-$4 from buying online individually (because of a 13% convenience fee). Plus – you won’t have to wait in line!
  • There are THREE SECTIONS for ticket purchase:
         1. Premium – RED ($28)
         2. Select – YELLOW ($21)
         3. Value – BLUE ($15)

    Location of the seat areas is shown below.2014 ECMG Seating Map
  • This online form ONLY accepts payment from PayPal. This simplifies our collecting of money and distribution of tickets. The price includes $1 to cover our 3% PayPal fee, as well as the $2 DCI admin fee for group sales.  You do NOT need a PayPal account to make the payment. ALL credit cards are accepted.
  • ORDER DEADLINE: Tickets must be purchased by MIDNIGHT on Sunday, July 20th so we can place our final counts and receive tickets in time for distribution on Monday, July 28th, 2014.  (Our plan is for Booster representatives to distribute them after band practice that day.) This will be verified with a follow-up email.
Hope to see you there!
