May 25- the Rhythm of the Rockies " Acappella Blitz" was quite an adventure. The weather gods decided to green up Calgary that day, so our outdoor events were either rainy or moved indoors.
This did not stop our indomitable spirit while singing at 7 locations around Calgary- the Calgary Zoo, Simmons bldg, Stephen Avenue mall, the new Central library (photo below), the infamous King Eddy, Eau Claire market and the Blind Beggar pub.

Wowzers! After a weekend of Showmanship coaching by the incomparable Judy Poszgay, we are exhausted, sore and blissfully happy. W were surprised by a visit from No Strings quartet and thrilled to be enveloped in their sound and emotion while they sang their contests songs to us.
Good luck at regionals gals! You will knock their socks off!
Brilliant, entertaining, ringy.
