The Summer is ending

10295178_695926990461560_1350741281691520494_oThis was it, last Monday’s performance at BARC was the last singing engagement we have for the summer.  The shifting of gears has already happened for winter, we have a Christmas number in our folders.

It’s amazing how fast it happens.  County fairs have already started and just after the middle of August some area schools will start.  Summer will be over.  In the mean time we can look forward to our chapter picnic and singing at the Twins game on August 17.

Details are still coming in for the picnic.  This year we will be hosted by Ken and Jean Fast at their home at 1845 Red Leaf Court.  To get to their house, head northwest out of Windom on River Road (County 13) to 18th Ave.  Take 18th Ave. north and take a left on Red Leaf Court.  Their house will be on your left.  Red Leaf Court is U-shaped so if you miss the first one, take the second one and go around the loop.

Last I heard it was burgers on the grill and a dish to pass.  Bring your own dinner ware.  Food will be served at 7.  Any other details or changes will be announced at practice.  See you all there.

BARC Picnic

The details are in for the BARC picnic.

Monday, July 21, we will be singing for those attending the picnic at 6:00.  Singers should gather in Room 10, our dressing area, to warm up at 5:30.

There will be a short practice immediately after we sing at the church.  Kent promises to let us out early.  No uniform, just street cloths.  Please be sure to tell everyone of the change in practice time.10448483_693991690655090_6499331793782274714_o

Summer 2014

A busy summer has already started.  Our first tour of churches was last Sunday, June 15 in Windom and was well received.  Members and fans may want to get some of these dates on their calendar.

July 11 will find us singing at Jackson’s Rhythm of the River Days.  Details will be coming, but for now put 5:30 down as our singing time.

July 13 will be our second tour of churches going east this time.

July 20 is the date for our last tour of churches as we sing in the north part of our area.

July 21 will be the BARC picnic.  Since that is a Monday, we will meet early to sing and then practice after that.

Those of you wanting to go to the Twins game need to talk to Terry to get on the list.  We will be joining other chapter from the region to sing on August 17.  Here’s your chance to be on Target field.images

The very next day we will have our chapter picnic.  That’s August 18 for those of you not keeping track.

Many of these days do not as yet have times locked down so be sure to be at practice. As I get more details I will let you know.

Our new summer shirts have been well received.  Please take care of them, they should give us many years of use.  Uniform of the day will also be discussed at practice.

Church sing schedule, Windom, 2014

The Windom Area Chordhustlers Chorus will be making its annual tour of churches on Sunday, June 16th. Below you will find our schedule for the morning.  We will arrive at your church at the approximate time listed unless I hear from you before Thursday next week. (June 5th)

 

8:55   Lutheran Church of Our Savior

We will enter your sanctuary singing a hymn, sing two more selections, and depart.  We should be in your sanctuary about 7 to 8 minutes.   With travel time between churches we do not have any extra time that morning.  We ask that you help us to stay with this schedule by allowing us to sing as soon as possible when we get to your church.

We hope to be on time, but if we are detained, we may come in a bit later. Hold on, we will be there soon.

Thank you for your help,

Jerry Bauer

2014 MN Twins Game

UnknownIt is time to mark your calendars for the 2014 Anthem and 7th Inning Singout at Target Field.  The date is Sunday, August 17th.  Gametime is 1:00 PM against the Kansas City Royals. We will be gathering at Noon at our usual place around the corner from Gate #6 – the light rail boarding area.

Everything remains the same from previous years, including the cost of the ticket. That will be $27 each. The seats remain located in the Overlook and Powerball section of Target Field (new food choices nearby).

I will appreciate receiving your ticket money no later than July 14th. That is a week earlier than normal but I want to have the tickets in my hand to distribute and our family vacation time will be off and on  after that week through August 11th.  It takes a little organizing so the extra time will make that work.  The Twins also want their money at least three weeks ahead.

Thanks for your continued interest. Again I am looking forward to our time together.
