This Pioneers UPDATE was issued by Don at the Grand
Tradition, Fall Brook CA. Please notice that the
date range is moved one day from Thurs - Saturday
to Weds - Friday to accommodate weekend bookings.
In my haste to get the news out from the Western Pioneers Convention, I
made a few errors and oversights. First disregard the original dates for
next years convention as there was a conflict with the Mid-Winter
Convention in Jacksonville, Florida. This will allow you die-hard
barbershoppers to make both events.
The Western Pioneers Convention has been moved back to the week after the
Mid-Winter Convention and will be begin on Wednesday, February 2nd and will
end with the "Big Show" on Friday night February 4th. MARK THESE DATES DOWN
ON YOUR CALENDAR!!!
Details will follow at a later date. Please let your fellow woodshedders
that do not have e-mail know about the new dates. Snail mail (regular mail)
will be going out mid-year.
The Westminster Chorus are going to be competing in Louisville not St.
Louis as stated in the earlier report. St. Louis is a great city but if you
want to see great Barbershop competition, please go to Louisville.
Speaking of the Westminster Chorus, during the Big Show on Saturday night
the young quartet O.C. Times Performed. I did not list the guys previously
so here goes!!!
Tenor Shawn York
Lead Sean Devine
Bari Pat Claypool
Bass Drew Harrah
Rumor has it that Pat Claypool is the grandson of Rich Lewis and a proud
grandpa he is. Watch this group of young men as they are going places.
