Looking Back on the May 26th Chapter Meeting

This week was another hard working recording session at First Baptist Church.

Wranglers worked on costumes for many guys.  Front row came at 6 to drill with PeeLee Clark and Carlos Barillo!  They are all planning to go to the retreat on Friday evening and will meet at 8pm.

And a good crowd of men worked on the stage with Chuck McKeever to review the “enHancenments” to the stage presence plan for the uptune.

Associate director Tony Colosimo did the warm ups and when director Joe Cerutti took over, he went right to work on singing.  We recorded too songs by working right up til cut off time.

Everyone helped reload things onto the Harmo van.

Ops vp Todd Ryktarsyk ran the brief chapter meeting.  McKeever reminded guys to pay for the retreat or at least tell Howard Nestlerode they will pay onsite at the retreat.

Pittsburgh coordinator Craig Kujawa asked guys if they had any questions in planning their trips in July to the International. A few guys met with him privately. He is still seeking some helpers for the Harmo events in Pittsburgh.

Secretary Chris Buechler presented membership renewal cards to Tim Buell for 11 years, Craig Kujawa for 12 years, Ken Rub for 24 years.

President Terry Reynolds brought to everyone’s attention that the Tuesday after International there WILL BE a regular chapter meeting and rehearsal. The annual sing at the hospital will be on the last Tuesday in July.

Terry also pointed out the members of the board that any of us could speak with if we have ideas or suggestions of questions about chapter operation.

After a break, it was back to work on the risers.

We ended the evening with a run of the contest package.

Tag singers had a great session at the afterglow this week.

Until next time – editorjack!
