The Citadel Cheerleaders will be among those people on hand in front of Padgett-Thomas Barracks Sunday afternoon to welcome home The Citadel Regimental Band and Pipes, which has been in Scotland since July 28 taking part in The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo.

The campus community- faculty, staff, students - is invited to come out and help welcome these cadets home to The Citadel. Local news media will be invited as well.

Throughout August the band and pipes performed for more than 218,000 people at Edinburgh Castle. The band will be seen by millions of people around the world this fall when BBC television airs a show and produces a DVD about the 2010 Tattoo. You can preorder the DVD at the Tattoo website. Check out Band experience in Scotland at www.citadel.edu/band.

The cadets will return Sunday in two shifts. The first flight arrives at Charleston International at 3:57 PM Sunday. The bus should depart the airport for campus by approximately 4:30 p.m. The second flight arrives at 6:04 PM Sunday and should depart the airport for campus by about 6:40 p.m. Please note times are approximate and flight arrivals are dependent on weather and other flying conditions.
