A Note from Josh Tyree & Jeff Keegan

On behalf of West Forsyth High School and the “Pride of the West”, we would like to invite you to the 7th Annual Wolverine Classic. It is our goal to provide a positive, rewarding experience for you and your band program at the Wolverine Classic. You are sure to see many fine performances from bands from across Georgia.

We have a great turf field, excellent stands for viewing performances, fine facilities and outstanding concessions to make your day a great experience.

The director / bus driver hospitality room will be located in the school cafeteria. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact one of the Classic workers and we will be glad to assist. Once again, we hope you will join us.
