Skyline E-Communication

Feb 9, 2002

All DUES must be PAID up THROUGH MARCH in order to compete. This is not optional. Region 8 and Sweet Adelines International would get very cranky with us if we included an ineligible member at competition.

CREATIVE TEAM for May 11 Show will meet Tues 12th, 6pm. Please bring in what youíve done so far for the show to discuss with the committee.

"This Tuesday at 6:00 pm, there will be an EXTRA R&B for 10 FEET and MAMA. Everyone is welcome, but this session will be especially designed for our newest members who may have missed the initial teaching of choreo on these 2 songs. We'll be teaching and demonstrating both songs from the beginning! Feel free to bring your music, wordsheets or videocameras to create an individual learning tool to practice with, if you'd like. We'll start at 6:00 SHARP!" Kim Andrews

Upcoming REGIONAL EDUCATION EVENTS include Grand Junction, May 17-18; Sterling, June 7-8, and Aug 16-17 in Estes Park, with Dr. Greg Lyne and Marcia Massey, faculty. So, mark your calendars. Amy Munnell will be getting more detailed information.

Peggie Watson reports: "SPECIAL EFFECTS will be delivering a singing valentine to Larry Green at Channel 4 at 1:30 on Monday. He plans to film it and, barring any more important news item (Osama Captured!), we should be featured on the 4 o'clock news (and possibly the other later shows as well) on Monday. Iím trying to arrange a delivery to Jim Benemann at Channel 9 on Monday, too. Thanks to Diane Page for arranging these for free Skyline publicity! What a gal!"

TICKETS to our MOTHERíS DAY SHOW will be available the first of April. We will have room for only 329 at the dinner. Cindy Munnell will supply details later.

Please PUT YOUR NAME ON YOUR TAPE RECORDER. Many recorders are being left at rehearsal and we donít know who their mommies are. (Why not just stick on one of your return-address mail stickers?) If you are missing your recorder, please see Liz Simmons.

Are your EARRINGS ready for CO SPRINGS? Please check on them, and let Shirley Ilgen know if you have any extras to return or if any need repair. If the backs have come off, Shirley can glue them back on.

Our hearts go out to BETTE ROONEY, whose son died in an avalanche while skiing in southern Colorado;

and former Skyline member KAREN GREER, who's mother passed away after a long bout with cancer. You can contact Karen at 16788 Clayton Road, Wildwood, MO 63011

GINNY WHITE wants everyone to know she is okay. She has been diagnosed with arhythmia and is seeing a cardiologist. She says thanks for your concern. Sheís resting at home if youíd like to call or email her.
