Yep, Tom, we had emcees telling jokes for years before the powers that be
decided to just give us a chance to talk between the contestants without
feeling we were being rude by ignoring someone talking up on the stage.
It's not a show; it's a contest. I think that the new halfsheet format
gives us just the right amount of time to chat about the previous contestant
and catch up with friends in the audience. I like having that time to
mentally process what I just saw and heard before the next group comes on,
personally. Granted, it was too long in the past, but now it seems just

was 5 or 6. She has several regional gold medals in chorus, and an
International Gold with Richtones in 1998.
She's been coaching for a long time, and has most recently founded a
brand new SAI chapter in Greenville, SC, that in a year is already
bringing in more than 50 people at rehearsals.
As an avid fan, she has crunched numbers and patterns of most
scoresheets that have come her way.
She is also a barbershop brat (both parents involved) and has a
brother in it, too.
And, I'm guessing on this one, but she's probably just little
disturbed that there is such heavy negative discussion going on about
scores and a contest where the numbers pan out when reviewed from

"And who are you?"
I am one of the thousands of Harmonetters that has been asked to believe
that Bakersfield was a C&J failure--and have endured it for far too long
now. I am a person who has officially been a barbershopper for 18 years,
although I was attending contests long before that. I am a person who has
won an International gold medal. I am a person who has attended countless
SPEBSQSA and SAI contests (Sorry HI, I'll get there someday). I am a coach.
I am an arranger. I am an assistant director. I plan to be an SAI judge.
I am a member of a regional medallist quartet. I am a person who has not
done as well as I wanted on occasion in competition and didn't call it a
failure on the part of the judges.
I am also a person who is sick of seeing judges of any organization called
"failures" when there is no evidence to support it other than what someone
keeps telling me "seems" low or high.
I apologize to all that are tired of hearing about this in general.
