I hope this note finds you well as you dig out from the weekend’s blizzard (and ice skated your child to school this morning!). While it is always heartbreaking to miss out on a competition weekend, between the ice that coated many roads overnight Friday into Saturday and the snow that came down in truckloads starting Saturday afternoon, it seems like it was very much the right call. A number of people have communicated their desire to support Norris financially (while they purchased event insurance for this year, they still do not come out nearly as ahead financially as if they had hosted their event), a GoFundMe site has been started. If you feel so generous to support our friends to the south, please utilize the link below:
Looking ahead, our final competition of 2019 is this coming Saturday. It has been an enjoyable journey making music and memories with these groups this year. Here is looking forward to one more great Saturday of Lincoln East Show Choir Competitions!
Please find attached a detailed itinerary for Saturday, along with a complete performance schedule. Hard copies of the itinerary are available to students starting today (although ticket prices are inaccurate as listed on the hard copies of itineraries- updated prices were sent after I had sent the itineraries to the print shop). I have also posted this info on my LPS Teacher WordPress website:
As in past years, we are offering a limited number of ride-along seats for parents interested in riding the charter busses along with students on Saturday. This saves you the wear & tear on your car and instead allows you to enjoy your ride (reading, conversing, or watching a movie) with students on the busses. In exchange for a seat on the bus, we would encourage a donation of $20 to the Lincoln East Vocal Music Boosters. Those parents that do ride along, please leave the front row of seats unoccupied for East staff members. We need to be at the front to be able to communicate with drivers, use the microphone system to make announcements to students, etc.
Here is looking forward to a great final weekend of competitive show choir!
And don’t forget to sign up for room monitors for the final competition!
