Looking Back on the May 12th  Chapter Meeting Which Was Canceled

The Durant Rec Center was closed by the city because the AC was broken since last Friday.

Cbapter leaders thanked all those guys who had made the effort to get to Alexandria before they heard the news online.

Leaders were quick to schedule a make-up session.  Here is the notice from president Terry
: I hope most of you got the message about tonight's cancellation before hitting the road. With the show this Saturday and Cindy coming next week, this is not a good week to miss a rehearsal.

Therefore, we will have a makeup rehearsal on Thursday May 14th at Plymouth Haven Baptist Church in Alexandria, down toward Mt. Vernon. It's not far from the Aldersgate Church where we rehearsed once last year. Thanks to Harmonizer Rob Nutt for making it available to us.

Plymouth Haven Baptist Church
8600 Plymouth Road
Alexandria, VA 22308
(703) 360-4370

We realize this is short notice, but please plan to attend if at all possible. The plan is to execute the rehearsal plan that was scheduled for tonight, with contest work, recording run-throughs, prep for Armed Forces Day show on Saturday, and work on American Icon repertoire.

Our reservation begins at 6:30. Please don't arrive before then. Therefore we will NOT have early Visual rehearsal with Chuck or early Front Row rehearsal.

From Capital Beltway: Take the Rt 1 / Ft Belvoir exit south, turn left on to Ft Hunt Road. Go 4.6 miles on Ft. Hunt Road (pass Belle View Shopping Center on left, Hollin Hall Shopping Center on right, then Collingwood Rd and Aldersgate Methodist Church). Just past Sandburg Middle School (on right) and Waynewood Blvd (on left), turn left on Plymouth Road. Take the second RIGHT into the church parking lot.
