NIPE WGI Worlds Special Edition

Hello NIPE parents and fans! This season has been an amazing journey and it's not over yet! I hope you are feeling the same energy and excitement that I am for the upcoming weekend! A special shoutout to the guard for representing Noblesville this past weekend in Open Class Finals!!!!

I thought it might be helpful to have important information in one place so as not to be "forgotten". This way, you're not "toying" around "lost" on the internet.

Use the "official" WGI website if you have any questions or need clarifications. You can find it here. ALWAYS check the Band APP for updates to the schedule...turn those notifications on one last time!

Last year I just paid for the month ($29.99). I was able to watch prelims and semis from work (shhh). Then I couldn't stand not being there and we drove to Dayton! It was nice for Jackson to be able to watch the World Class finals from home later that evening. Just remember to unsubscribe after Sunday morning!
