Day of EventRegistration Process

  • A guide will be assigned to your group for the entire day and take you through the following steps.
    • Bugle call transfer rehearsal
    • Safety briefing

once on location
Once on location
  • Brass playerswill be spaced 1/10th to 1/20th of a mile apart. Younger players may be placed closer
  • All brass players will face toward the beginning of the route
  • Brass players will watch and listen to the player preceding them
  • The player at the starting point will raise his/her instrument in a windmill fashion such that the arm swing rotates at least 270˚. This will serve as a visual queue that TAPS is about to begin
  • Upon hearing the first three notes of Taps the bugler will begin to play (per Taps Playing Process). If you don’t hear the first three notes, count to five and begin to play
mass playing optional
Mass Playing (optional)
  • After the sequenced playing of taps, all players will move to the final mass playing location (if your location is going to do a massed playing – not all are going to do this)
