It's That Special Time Of Year

Once again, the Midwest Convention is almost upon us. For anyone reading this who's interested, we'll be singing Saturday and Sunday at Ida Noyes Hall, at 59th and Woodlawn, on the University of Chicago campus, from 9:30 to around 3, 3:30ish. There will be potluck. Oh boy, will there be potluck.

I've scheduled the making of the Saturday food, and the Sunday food will just have to be done all at once on Saturday night. Fortunately, my out-of-town guests have indicated that they will stay over Saturday night, and so will be available to help schlep food down to Ida Noyes for Sunday. Yay!

This is great -- for the first time, I'll be able to walk to the Midwest Convention, instead of taking the CTA at the buttcrack of dawn!

One of the biggest Sacred Harp conventions in the country. We'll be hosting maybe a hundred and fifty people right here in Hyde Park. And we'll feed them all with potluck, which is why I'm making enough food that I have to schedule it.

Drat. I would love to have come, but I'm spending Memorial Day weekend in flyover country again.

Take heart, the Midwest isn't always on Memorial Day weekend, though more often than not. Sometimes it's in April. Crazy scheduling.

Have fun in flyover country!

Wish we could be there. *sigh* Some year we'll make it to a really big convention... We're talking about going to NY in October this year, but that's just talk right now.

We'd love to have you any year you can make it. The upper theater in Ida Noyes is a fantastic singing room.

The initial report, as of mid-afternoon on Friday:

1 out-of-town guest received (out of 2)
1 pumpkin pie baked (out of 2)
2 containers of salad crunchies toasted (out of 2)
0 salads made (out of 4)
3.5 secretarial committee members drafted (out of as many as are willing to help)
1 big squee elicited from a particular friend (out of 1)

All in all, it's going pretty well.
