      This is the call for papers for the September
      2010 issue of the GUBOQS Gazette*, an independent
      pro-quartet publication. We publish success
      stories describing regular quartet encouragement
      sessions held during SPEBSQSA chapter
      meetings. We seek creative ideas to share which
      influence members to experience
      quartetting. Authors receive free introductory issues

      Do your quartet sessions give every member an
      opportunity to sing with three others at every
      meeting? Email me a one page article describing
      your program. The target date for your article is two weeks from today.

      Thank you,

      Casey Parker
