Fun and Games

Along with the work...

So far, we've had some nice autumn weather, so there should be no excuses for not getting to rehearsals - especially since we don't have many rehearsals left until our Concert of Remembrance. And it's getting closer everyday - as seen on the countdown timer to the left. There isn't much time to clean up that new music, and we still need to get the old stand-bys out and polished up a little. So, please, make some time to work on the new pieces.

This week we also have the Halloween costume fun - wear your costume to rehearsal, and see if you win the prize - the judges are not prone to outside judging, so it should be a fair contest. Next week, aside from being the last rehearsal before the concert, will be the November 50/50 draw. Bring your loonies and toonies - remember that aside from the temporary boost to the pocketbook, we're all winners, since the proceeds go towards new music.

First half or lump sum whole year fee payments are now past due - they should have been paid by October 21, and the second installment will be due by January 13, 2016.
If you are having cash flow problems, please talk to our lovely treasurer to work something out! 
Remember: there is no additional fee for playing a second instrument and/or coming to both Intermediate and Senior rehearsals!!
Also, remember to scroll down and read all the way to the end of the weekly update email - it paid off for last month's 50/50 winner!
