It’s Fall Convention time where good song, good harmony, good friends, and fellowship all come together to form the perfect weekend to reenergize your barbershop batteries, and to experience the excitement of harmonizing with old and new friends! Cincinnati “The Queen City” is the location for the 2014 JAD Fall Convention.
Cincinnati, Ohio is the third largest city in Ohio, the 28th largest city in the United States and home to two major sports teams: The Cincinnati Reds and The Cincinnati Bengals. Cincinnati is a favorite family vacation destination with its two sports teams, Kings Island, the Cincinnati Zoo, some of the finest eateries in the country, just to name a few of its attractions. But I can think of no better reason to be in Cincinnati October 17 – 19 than to attend the New JAD Fall Convention & Contests.
The JAD has contracted a fine hotel at an affordable price for our HQ, and a great facility for the contest activities:
The Headquarters Hotel:
Crowne Plaza Cincinnati / Blue Ash
5901 Pfeiffer Road
Cincinnati, Ohio 45242
Phone: (513) 793 -4500
Room rate: $89.00
Identify yourself as a Johnny Appleseed Barbershpper when making reservations.
The Contest Venue:
McAuley High School
6000 Oakwood Avenue
Cincinnati, Ohio 45224
Whether you are attending the Fall Convention to sing with the popular JAD Mic. Tester Chorus (every member is invited to sing and participate with the Mic tester chorus) or you plan to compete with your chorus and or quartet, or plan not to compete at all, there is something for everyone.
Come to Cincinnati and join fellow barbershoppers in gang singing, woodshedding, tag singing, hospitality suites, or to just visit with old friends. You will find that and more at this year’s New Fall Convention & Contest.
Make plans now to attend and help us Ring some barbershop Chords in the Queen City!
See you there October 17 -19, 2014!
