We just got back from this year's competition, and our hat is off to the Mt. Baker Toppers, who managed to successfully organize a competition in a different *country*!  (The Mt. Baker Toppers are from Washington State, and the competition was in Abbotsford, BC)

This year's Evergreen Division One champs are The Squares.  Our quartet managed to increase our scores slightly to place 4th out of 13 quartets (last year we were 6th out of 9 quartets).

However, it isn't all about the scoring, or even the wonderful coaching we receive from each of the competition judges afterwards.  This weekend is a great opportunity to fellowship with other barbershoppers from BC and Washington State, and of course, to sing, and sing we do, whether it's in the Duke Of Dublin Olde Irish Pub, or at the Afterglow (see our newly posted videos for a sampling of that), or in the hospitality suite provided by the Naniamo Tidesmen, who will be hosting the next competition in Naniamo next year.

So, buoyed by the encouraging responses by those who watched the quartet competition, and strengthened by the helpful direction of the contest judges, we are ready to bring the best of what we have to share with you, our appreciative audience.  Look for our name on in the billing wherever good music is scheduled! :-D
