Last year’s BNO, and Blues in the Schools

20 Jan

Hey Golfers, I just wanted to let everyone know that proceeds from last years event did a lot a good in our Community! Since the event last year, our Blues Music Society has made donations of $1000 each to BOTH Quincy Senior High and Quincy Notre Dame High Schools Music Programs, we’ve also helped out The Blues in the District Free Summer Concert Series, as a Corporate Sponsor for the last show of the Summer (rare for a non-profit club to do so-but we have the same interests-THE BLUES!).

AND-WE are hosting a ‘BLUES IN THE SCHOOLS” PROGRAM, FEB. 15-17TH 2011 with RICH BERRY, from Kansas City coming to educate and perform for local students! Rich will be appearing at several schools during his three-day visit to Quincy, and this is due to the Blue Note Open event. AND also the hard work by several of our anonymous dedicated members, who work tirelessly at another event, and donate the funds that they make to go towards Blues Music Education. Thanks to everyone who helps make this all happen! And also to our golfers!

ALSO-FOR TEAMS REGISTERING FOR THIS YEAR’S BLUE NOTE OPEN…We made new sign-up forms this year, and I’ve realized that the Entry Fee was accidentally omitted from some of the new forms. The Entry Fee for this year is the same as last year-$50 for each Team of four. (Sorry-no individual entry’s are allowed, as this has always been a team event).  If you need a sign up form, then email: webmaster-at-quincyblues.com (use @ symbol, trying to avoid spam mail). Both forms need to be filled out and mailed in to us before the event. (Though if there’s room left for more teams, we will accept additional entries on day of the event-but-do you really want to chance this?)

The END TIME is supposed to be 6pm, BUT, if you are wanting to compete for prizes, we will be calling the end to the competition at 6:30pm sharp, and be awarding them around that time…
