      Here goes, folks! Apologies in advance for its length, especially to those on the digest. For those of you new to the Harmonet since last July, the appended list is the annual update I have provided many years now for trivia involving medalists, on both the chorus and quartet side (and I do a similar one for the seniors for their Web site). Should you find an error, please feel free to let me know -- privately. And for the predicted several who will let me know that, while Don Barnick is now the second three-part medalist, "gee, wasn't he already one because he sang bari with Sidekicks in 1989", well, no, no, he wasn't; he'd left the quartet by then and Bill Billings was the medalist bari. Congratulations to Jay Giallombardo for achieving the record for most director medals at 15.

      Kindest regards,

        OK, here it is. If you have any corrections to it, please research and then send them to me (separately from the Net) at bsutton@... and I’ll review them. This should break up more than its share of bar fights.



        Not a lot of changes this year; aside from Toronto now having all five medals, Tony de Rosa joins a tie for most all-time medals at 11, with Jim Gentil and Joe Connelly. Darin Drown of the Sound of the Rockies now has more fourth-place medals as a director than anyone else, ever.



        Please enjoy and as always, pardon its absurd length.
