Welcome to the home of the Kent State University Marching Golden Flashes!

Pre-Camp Registration Form Now Available!

New and returning members, online registration for Pre-Camp 2012 is now available.  Pre-Camp is a two day event at the end of July and will mainly consist of music rehearsal.  It is very important that you can attend if possible so that we can get a head start on all of the music for the 2012 marching season.  Please fill out the form here if you intend to be a member of MGF for 2012.  E-mail the band office if you have any questions or want to be in the MGF but cannot attend Pre-Camp.
