It is important for all of our Marching 110 Alumni who intend to participate register for the weekend. This provides the 110 and athletics with an approximate number of individuals to plan accommodate for the tailgate meal, tickets for the game, and seats in the stadium.

REGISTRATION LINK COMING SOON!

INSTRUMENT RENTAL

The Alumni Band utilizes the Marching 110's practice instrument during the Homecoming Weekend. A $.01 fee is assessed though the system, so this system is just to track the inventory. Quantities are limited, so it is recommended to reserve your instrument early! If you do not reserve an instrument, there will not be one there for you to use! We can no longer accept “special arrangements” for you to pick up an instrument after the parade, before halftime, etc. All university-owned instruments will only be available at the storage units by Pruitt Field before the parade. If you can’t be there/don’t get there to get an instrument at that time, you’ll need to find another instrument to use on your own.

WRISTBANDS

As with last year, a wristband will be required for field access at halftime for security purposes. This is to ensure only 110 Alumni are given access to the field for Homecoming. Wristbands will be given out at the parade practice/line up by OUMBSAF board members as well as after halftime practice with the game day tickets. 

Alumni without a wristband will not be permitted to be on the field for halftime and stopped by security from entering the field area.
