Trailers / Transportation Information

 

Trailers...

The RHSEU currently utilizes 2 trailers for competitions, festivals, concerts, and general equipment transport.

Our 16 ft. Cargo Trailer requires a volunteer vehicle suited to tow it.  Our Flatbed Truck and attached 28 ft. Cargo Trailer requires a skilled volunteer driver only.  Both are used by the band boosters in the Fall as "chuck wagons" to transport food, meal preparation equipment, and other band support items for the marching band to competitions and other public performances.  After the Fall Season is over, they are reconfigured to be used by our winter Color Guard, Drumline, Choir, Jazz Band and Concert Bands to transport instruments and equipment to those group's competitions and performances for the remainder of the school year.  

 

How to sign up?

We are always looking for volunteers with the correct driving and/or towing equipment, and have been signed up through the Transportation Director, to drive or pull the trailers for us.

If you would like to pull for the RHSEU, contact the Transportation Director, fill out and return the DMV Pull Notice, and make arrangements to tow for an upcoming band event. In order to pull for the RHSEU you will also need to have a valid Driver's License issued by the state of California and current automobile insurance.
