2015 Heart of Carolina

Inclement Weather Announcement

Wakefield regrets to announce the cancellation of the 2015 Heart of Carolina Marching Band Invitational. 

Due to deteriorating field conditions, Wake County Schools made a system wide announcement that all scheduled activities on playing fields would be cancelled this weekend.  The benefits for an indoor competition were weighed against various other factors and after consultation with all the participating bands and the school staff, the decision to cancel was reached. 

Thank you for your support of our program and our students.

The ramps are designed with interlocking extensions at their tops which hold the three ramps together and prevent them from tipping or moving during performance.  The extensions also serve as the base for the platform, which is also reinforced to allow for students standing on or walking across the platform.  At their tallest point, the ramps are 20" tall.
