Check in outside WMB to pick up your name badge, lanyard and meal ticket if purchased. Flagline members will pick up their flags when they check in outside WMB. If you checked in on Friday night you can skip this line.
Reserved instruments can picked up in the cage (basement of WMB). The south end of the basement in WMB is not accessible to anyone. The building crew cut a new door in the basement through which you can access the cage. Look for posted signs to help you find the new door. There is a ramp from the new door into the cage and it’s a bit rickety. Please be careful and patient because that ramp can’t hold a lot of people – one or two at a time is okay.
Halftime music and fight songs along with flagline cheat sheets will be provided only to those who have registered. The email with the download link was sent. You MUST bring your music with you as it will not be provided.
Once checked in, you must wear your lanyard as this is needed for entry into WMB and onto Tom Osborne field. You can only enter WMB through the northeast doors to pass security. Other doors are locked for security of the building and safety of the students. Only registered alumni will be on the security list. Family and guests will not be allowed in the building.
- Instrumentalists will meet to rehearse music.
- Flagline and Twirlers meet by Willie (sculpture) to walk to Memorial Stadium where they’ll meet with the captain/rank leaders of the current flagline to learn the routine.
Wait in the stands or sideline until your section is called to the field. Once placed, the Alumni Band will exit the field to practice the entrance and exit from the field for halftime, as well as practice our music with the current band. This rehearsal should last about one hour. Snider Scholarship Recipient(s) announced.

Line up in parade formation to march down to Memorial Stadium on the EAST SIDE OF SHELDON. We will leave when the CMB begins ‘Hail Varsity.’
When not performing, the Alumni Band will sit on the sidelines on the East side of the field. We will work with the Band and Athletic departments to be able to play a couple of times during the game, but please be aware that this may not be possible. Each game is scripted as to what is played on Husker Vision and when the band can play. Because of limited seating, only performing alumni will be able to sit in the chairs on the sidelines.
If you leave the game early, you will only have access to WMB for about 30 minutes past halftime. You must enter the northeast door. You are responsible for returning rented equipment and instruments. If you rented an instrument, leave the instrument outside, but not blocking, the new cage door.
Following the game, the alumni band will line up on the field to march back to WMB following the CMB’s post game performance. Alumni flagline will line up behind the current UNL flagline to perform with them for the CMB post game performance.
