Itís Free Day at the zoo, so parking will, itself, be a zoo. Plan lots of time for finding a spot. Carpooling would be good.

NASHVILLE DEADLINE. If you did not get your Intent to Compete to Gail before last Tuesday (Oct 2), you did not get registered for Nashville. (Those of you who told me Tuesday night, sorry, but the check had already been cut and the list made up.) HOWEVER, you can still get registered by March 1 - along with our members who are just joining - and get seats with the rest of Skyline. You can also register guests to sit with us. Watch this space for more information. Do not panic. All is not lost. However, it is your responsibility to watch for the information and when it comes out pounce on it! I shall not hunt you down. Much.

From Linn Pickard, "To those who volunteered to handle chorus TICKET SALES for our Christmas Show within their respective sections: appreciative glad-handing, pats-on-the-back, kisses-on-the-cheeks, a hearty THANKS!

LEADS: Gail Madison, Jenifer Vaughn, & Diane Aarness

BASSES: Diane Kessel & Sue Gilbert

TENORS: Jeanne Schamel

BARITONES: Therese Bickford

Tickets will be available for check-out from these folks on either October 23 or 30. All payments will have to be finalized and unsold tickets returned to them by dress rehearsal the week before the show. Keep that in mind! Let's all remember that a "Full House" is a winning hand and begin to plan now to make a good effort for just that."


From Wendy Moran, "My son is in the "Young Voices" concert choir (formerly known as the "Littleon Children's Chorale") and they are selling ads for their "Viewbook". I'm going to buy a business card size ad, which I thought I'd use to promote Skyline Chorus. Is anyone else interested in making a contribution to buy a larger size ad? The business size is $40, which is about the highest I can go. A quarter page (3-1/2" x 6") is $100; (just 12 more people to throw in $5 each) and a half page is $200. Let me know. Thanks! Wendy"


From Bette Rooney: "Since I was in Rothenberg, Germany when I learned of the terrorist attacks, I thought you might be interested in a first hand account of how that part of the world reacted to the tragedy. The support was very touching and ran the gamut from hardboiled Parisian cabdriver to German shopkeeper. It was 3:00 PM in Rothenberg, 7:00 AM in Denver on September 11th and I felt the irony of learning the news before Colorado had fully awakened. Shopkeepers, many of whom had tears in their eyes, were approaching us expressing sympathy and support. As we continued our travels we saw memorials scattered in different parts of various towns with piles of flowers and notes in broken English, expressing how much the dead were mourned and would be missed. When we arrived in Cologne some days later, two huge bridges crossing the Rhein were filled to capacity with people marching with American flags. I believe this unspeakable act has polarized the world and it is my fervent hope that I will always remember the togetherness of spirit I felt that day."
