Registration for the 2021 “Battle on the Border” is Now Open

The Lowndes High School “Georgia Bridgemen” are proud to announce that registration is now open for the 17th annual “Battle on the Border” marching band competition. The competition will be held Saturday, October 16, 2021 in Martin Stadium on the Lowndes campus in Valdosta, GA.

Due to the prelims and finals format, only a limited number of performance slots are available. We cannot accept additional applications once these slots are filled. We will determine performance order by the date and time on the application. All applications must be submitted by October 4, 2021. All applications must be signed by the band director and the school principal.

For more information on the contest, including the registration form, entry fees, classification system, the judging panel, and more, please visit our Battle on the Border page.

We LOVE our Band Nurses

On the 100-degree practice field in the middle of July, or a steamy South Georgia night in the Concrete Palace, or a Band Competition in another state, if you are watching our Georgia Bridgemen, there are band nurses volunteering their personal time to handle whatever emergency comes their way. Today, we say THANK YOU to all the people who have served in the past or are currently serving as a Band Nurse for all the hours they volunteer to keep our children healthy while they do what they love. HAPPY NURSES DAY TO ALL NURSES WHO SERVE OUR COMMUNITY!

Announcing Our 2021 Fall Trip

It is with great excitement that we are able to announce that the Georgia Bridgemen will be traveling again in the Fall of 2021.  While we feel it may not be prudent at this time to take on a trip like we have done in the past, we will be taking the band to Orlando, FL for some fun at Universal Orlando and a performance opportunity.

Below are the links for and “Intent Form” and “Payment Agreement Form”.  Both of these need to be returned to the student’s director or mailed to the Lowndes Band Boosters by April 30th, 2021 along with an $100.00 deposit.

Obviously, as we get closer to the trip detailed information will be provided and meeting had to discuss all aspects of the trip.  Please fell free to email me with any questions.  jonbowman@lowndes.k12.ga.us
