Q: What do we wear?
A: We will be wearing:
If the weather calls for it, you are welcome to wear a white GTBAA fleece. GTBAA polos, fleeces, and ball caps are available for purchase through the online store.
Q: How much does it cost?
A: The total homecoming registration fee is $35. This includes dues, pregame meal, and other fees to cover costs of the Alumni Band program. GTBAA will be allocating 20% of all registration fees and dues to service for the active Yellow Jacket Band.
Q: Where do my dues and registration fees go?
A: The registration fees and/or dues cover a number of things to support Homecoming each year and help keep GTBAA functioning. GTBAA also uses what little is leftover to support the active Band through service projects and alumni/active events.
Q: What time does toe meet leather on GAMEDAY?
A: The earliest we will know is Monday, October 9. The ACC can still take the 6-day option to announce the kickoff time for a Georgia Tech home game this season.
Q: Can my family join me?
A: Yes, your family is absolutely welcome to join you during all of our pregame activities up until marchdown. Due to NCAA regulations, which have been in place since 2007, nobody under the age of 18 years old is allowed on the field and sidelines.
Q: What do I do with my instrument during the game?
A: Instruments will be stored in the Edge building during the game. We will meet at the Band section for The Horse at the end of the game and retrieve instruments together as a group.
