It will be quite a while

before I can complete this goal. I still want to do it, but there are several factors that are slowing me down with it. At the last Pacific Northwest Harmony Sweepstakes that I attended in Olympia, Washington, I spoke with one of the singers. His group had competed in the National Harmony Sweepstakes the previous year and so had been to San Rafael, California, which is where the National is held. He told me its a small stage and not very notable. I had always pictured it as a big stage with a certain amount of grandeur to it. The PNW in Olympia is nice and of moderate size, but its not huge. I was a bit taken aback by the singer’s comments.
But the primary reason that keeps me from going is cost.

The 2008 National Harmony Sweepstakes is

on May 3. That won’t fit into my schedule this year but maybe next year or the year after.

The National Harmony Sweepstakes a cappella Festival

is held in San Rafael, California. The groups are the winners from each of the eight regional sweepstakes held earlier in the year. The regionals are held as follows

Los Angeles
Mid-Atlantic (Alexandria, Virginia)
New York
Pacific Northwest (Olympia, Washington)
San Francisco Bay Area
