After lunch, sectionals met to work on music. The full band for the first time took the field at Scott Stadium! It was quite a spectacle to see the full band come charging out of tunnels for the first time and performing the whole pregame; music, drill - everything! Congratulations to all the first years for making it this far! Everyone has put in a lot of work this week and it really showed off! In the evening, the sections competed to see who had the most entertaining 7-minute skit. The baritones came out on top with their rendition of Spike TV's "Manswers." The winner of the week was announced afterwards, who is the saxophone section - congratulations!

The CMB was then visited by Hunter Smith in the new Hunter Smith Band Building. It was an incredible moment that was concluded by a memorable first-time singing of the Good Old Song in the new building by the whole band.

The trumpets took first in the synchronized swimming while the saxophones kept their lead by coming in first for the relay.
