Thank you for your insights on flamingo flocking during our conversation this evening; the tips you shared are much appreciated!
Allow me to introduce our group to you: we are a non-profit parent group, SAMBA, supporters of the Sunset Apollo Marching Band and Auxiliary. This year, the Sunset High School Marching Band (Sunset Apollo Marching Band and Auxiliary of Beaverton) was invited to participate in the All-American Music Festival in Orlando, Florida. We have been fundraising since July (selling fireworks, even!)to help defray the cost of the trip. ($108,000) Now you can say, "Wow. Oh, my."
Thank you in advance for researching whether you can "fly in a flock" for us. We will probably start the effort as soon as we are organized with our paperwork and have the details worked out. I will get the approval from our committee this Wednesday night as to how many flocks we would use. (Three flocks of 18 sounds good to me.) I am thinking that the group may want to keep the flocks to try this each year, but I will let them know of your offer to purchase them back.
Please respond with the details of your suggestion so that there is accurate understanding and communication of your tentative proposal.
