GET YOUR NAME OR BUSINESS AD ON THE SIDE OF OUR TRAILER!! SCROLL DOWN TO SEE SOME COOL REWARDS :)

This past year we were fortunate to borrow an equipment trailer from one of our local middle schools; however, because of growth in both band programs, this trailer is no longer available for us to use. Without an equipment trailer, we will be unable to participate in marching band and drumline competitions.

COST:

The Etiwanda Band Program is asking for $6,000 for the trailer. Their band director has graciously offered to hold this specifically for us. However, other schools are interested and we need to move quickly.

SPECIFICATIONS:

This trailer has already been modified specifically for a band program:

  • Lighting (runs on 12v battery)
  • Shelving on both sides
  • Large shelf in the front for drums
  • Floorspace under shelves for things like sound equipment and generators
Ramp is perfect for large mallet instruments and timpani

ADVERTISING:

Show your support for the Gahr Marching Gladiators by placing your company’s ad on our equipment trailer! Why? During marching band and drumline season, the trailer is a mobile billboard, traveling the highways to transport the band equipment to weekend competitions! When it’s not in use, the trailer is located near the busy 91 Freeway on-ramp. Our band trailer is one of the least expensive forms of advertising and is seen by tens of thousands of people every year!

Anything you can give takes us one step closer to getting our equipment trailer!

All funds raised past our goal will go towards repainting the trailer, adding graphics/artwork, and modifying the interior.

Risks and challenges

REBUILDING: Once we purchase the trailer from Etiwanda High School, we will need to remove some of the shelving on the inside of the trailer to make more room for transporting instruments and equipment. There may costs to make minor modifications.

REPAINTING: The exterior of the trailer will need to be repainted over the existing Etiwanda logo. We want new graphics that will let everyone know the Gahr Marching Gladiators have arrived!

ADVERTISING GRAPHICS: We will need to pay for the graphics for the SPONSOR and CHARTER packages - including vinyl lettering, B&W logos, and the full color wrap on the back of the trailer.

FULFILLMENT: Sometimes things go awry that can’t be planned for: our t-shirt or souvie supplier misses a deadline, a shipment gets lost, or there are issues manufacturing the trailer graphics/artwork. Those things could cause a delay.
