Congratuations to Bill Hickman - Bellevue, Northwest Sound on being the 2019 Barbershopper of the Year!

Our newest recipient has a storied and wonderful in and out of barbershop career. He is the son of a musician raised in Sparks, Nevada.  After he left school after studying music he began a 30 year career in the US Navy. He joined the Fairfax Jubilaires in 1981, and never looked back. He sang in 6 different districts, with 8 choruses - from Rhode Island to the Masters of Harmony. He served as Program VP, section leader (bass of course), show chair, assistant director, choreographer, visual teams and several boards. He is currently Northwest Sound chapter president, Certified Leadership instructor at the Society level, HCNW faculty, and senior Quartet champ. You can call him Skipper (full captain!), Sir, Bill, Prez., or a great friend and leader!! Welcome Bill Hickman to the cadre of Evergreen District Barbershopper of the Year! Congrats.

Conflict Dates

Convention Dates and Conflicts

May 26, 2020 Rob Macdonald, Evergreen Director of Events

           

Over the years, Evergreen has struggled with the 6 convention dates it requires every year. We want to ensure that Judges are available and avoid conflicts with holidays and SAI convention dates. Chapters can choose and participate and host these conventions, and plan for the future. Here are the “assigned” dates for the Division and District conventions 2021-2025.

Division III (Alberta) conflicts with Memorial Day, but that has been no problem in the past.

There is some flexibility in the assigned Convention dates, should the host chapter have issues with venue and hotel, for example. They may be able to swap a weekend with another Division convention.
