Anonymous said: hi, so my bad has this weird system where the best 3/4 of the band is called the festival squad and the rest are called alternates, and i'm an alternate. We don't get to play at festivals, it sucks. i'm a freshman. none of the alternates really care about band. They just don't try, and so they make the form look awful. i'm trying to help us to not suck, but they don't listen. can you help?
Maybe you should talk to an authoritative figure and tell them what’s up. You could even talk to them yourself. Tell them that you’re not trying to take control of everyone or anything but you’re just trying to help everyone out and not embarrass yourselves.
