Good evening,

In light of the State of Emergency declared for TS Nate, a worsening forecast, and uncertainty of storm severity, we have decided to cancel the 2017 Lake Martin Invitational.

The decision was made today so that all involved would not be held in limbo overnight and into the morning while feeling compelled to continue preparations. Having been on both ends of this situation, I felt earlier was best and safest.

I would like to thank our judging panel for freeing up a weekend to serve and all the parents, students, and the Alexander City community for preparing to host our 19th edition. We’ll be ready next year.

I thank everyone for choosing LMI. You have our well-wishes for a safe passing of the storm and a successful rest of the season.

Sincerely,

Dale Bloodworth, Director
Benjamin Russell HS Bands
