Just letting you know that Jerry DID finish the 50-km race this past Saturday. He was VERY appreciative of your pledges.
He has told me a couple of times how it gave him quite a bit of incentive to keep going when his body was giving him quite another message,
especially this year his body was giving the opposite message because it was so hot and humid!
Jerry said all of the finishing times were slower than last year! Also, there were more leaves down along the rocky trails.
Some of you made a pledge on this event, and most of you have already sent me the money.
If you made a pledge based on Jerry's finishing the race, you can now send me a check, made out to me.
If you DIDN'T make a pledge earlier, but would like to now, that would be greatly appreciated.
Just make out a check payable to me and send it to me at the address given below.
Thanks for your help with this. I promise that every cent will soon be with the treasurer for the use of our youth chorus(es) going to Orange County, CA!

Youth In Harmony Outreach Guidelines
Many of our chapters, quartets and choruses are
eager to engage music educators to get involved in a barbershop outreach program at their local schools. This is a good thing! That said, it's
critical to the success of our outreach efforts that we always leave the music educator with the best possible impression of the barbershop
art form and how it can enhance/augment the teacher's music education program.
Dear Chapter Presidents, Secretaries, and Treasurers,
IF YOU WANT TO CHANGE YOUR DUES FOR 2018
Changes in dues prices for chapters for 2018 must be updated in the BHS Member Center before NOVEMBER 1st
(more than 60 days in advance as has always been our practice).
If your chapter or district does not wish to change your dues prices, there is nothing else you need to do.
As a general reminder, it is not necessary to contact Society Headquarters to change your dues (Chapter or District) prices.
We will be running invoices for January in November and the amounts must be in the system prior to running the invoices.
Attempted changes with a start date within 60 days will not be accepted by the computer system.
The MAD Marketing Team has created a Marketing Toolbox for Chapters & Quartets to use to promote your group.
MAD Chorus Plateau Definitions
Chorus plateau categories are based on the average percentile results from the two previous contests in which the chorus was entered.
70% and above
60 - 69.9%
55 - 59.9%
54.9% and below.
First-time competitors will not be eligible for plateau awards,
but their initial contest score can be used to place them in their next contest.
A chorus that has not competed in any contest for more than four years will reenter the contest cycle as a Plateau A chorus.
Supercharging Your Chapter!
This program defines and capitalizes on the only two effective ways that people join barbershop
and then provides the tools to make it easy and approachable for ANY chapter to grow
and ANY member to earn get a Man of Note award, which may be the ultimate award.
