"Durand Marching Railroaders, you may take the field in Flight V competition."  For the band's seniors, Saturday will mark the last day in their high school marching career that they'll hear these words.  The band will take the field at the state finals contest on Saturday at Ford Field, a long way from the photo above, of the band rehearsing one August evening; what might seem like a lifetime ago.  The show's theme, "Your Last Day On Earth," brings an all new, suddenly all too real, meaning.  For band seniors, the world is about to change.

In their final contest of the season before state finals, Durand saw many of the Flight V bands they'll be up against in Detroit.  The band took 4th place at the West Shore Invitational on October 27th with a score of 85.875.  There were eleven bands competing in Flight V that day.  That's a good place for our rebuilding Railroaders to be, heading into this weekend.

On Friday night, the band took the field at Roundhouse Stadium to offer community members a free, field-view look at the show.  Great photo ops, at your own risk.  The band moves.

There's an excitement for the Durand Marching Railroaders that hasn't been felt in a handful of years.  And there's nothing like marching into a performance at a place like Ford Field.

Space on a spectator bus is available.  The cost to ride is $8.

The band will leave for Ford Field at 11:30am, after one final rehearsal on Saturday morning, from 7 to 10am.  The Durand Marching Railroaders are scheduled to perform at 3:30pm.  Flight V awards will begin at 4:30pm.  The band is expected to ride back into town between 7:30 and 8pm.
