PTB's Liszt (last updated on 8/15//2014)
The PTB has a bulletin board that our members can use to post items of interest to the entire band. These items are not necessary for the successful operation of the band so they are not disseminated through emails to all band members.
To post an item to the PTB's Liszt (think Craig's List) send the title and the text you want posted to the webmaster. Examples of potential items are:
  • Volunteers needed
  • free stuff
  • things for sale
Sectionals are held from 6:30pm-8pm on Tuesday nights next to the band room.

Credits for missed rehearsals

The Prime Time Band has, since its inception, had a policy of granting credits for dues paid if a member misses four (4) or more consecutive rehearsals. At its meeting on October 28, 2014 the Board of Directors approved the following change in the administration of the credits because the attendance sheets are occasionally incomplete and some members forego taking the credits. Members will now have the responsibility of claiming the credit when they make their next dues payment. Credits not claimed will be considered as donations to the band and acknowledged as such annually.

Formerly, at the end of each quarter, the treasurer reviewed the attendance sheets and notified members of issued credits as appropriate. Beginning with credits earned during October-December, 2014 against dues payments on January 1, 2015 the following procedure will be in effect.

    Members who have missed 4 or more consecutive rehearsals during a quarter and who wish to receive a dues credit will be responsible for deducting the appropriate amount from their dues payment for the following quarter, attaching an explanatory note to their payment. The schedule of credits allowable is as follows:
  • If you were absent for 4-5 consecutive rehearsals, you may deduct $25.00.
  • If you were absent for 6-7 consecutive rehearsals, you may deduct $37.50.
  • If you were absent for 8-9 consecutive rehearsals, you may deduct $50.00.
  • For absences of 10 or more weeks, please contact the treasurer directly.
The treasurer will use the attendance sheets to verify the absences, then enter the appropriate credits on the computer along with your payment for the current quarter.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Remember, if you wish to take advantage of the credits, attach a short explanation (“I missed 5 rehearsals April 1 through May 5”) to your dues payment for the quarter and deduct the appropriate amount from that payment.

If you have any questions, please contact the treasurer.
Rehearsal Announcements
From time to time we all have important things we want to say to the band during our rehearsal break. We are a large and diverse group so it seems reasonable to have some type of guidelines concerning these announcements.
The Board of Directors recently adopted a policy that is currently in force. Please read this policy.
From Karen - MAravilla and Valle Verde
Thank you for the past two stellar performances at Maravilla and Valle Verde! These are two places we haven't been in a while (the first time with me at the baton). Both audiences were very appreciative and we received many positive comments. We'll have to work on getting me a baton that lights up if we do any more of these "sunset" concerts!

A big shout out to Marguerite for being "the voice of the band" last night. I definitely couldn't have made it through without her!

Thanks again for coming out and volunteering for these Pops concerts! I look forward to our next one at Samarkand in February.
Thanks - Karen
