The schedule should be announced any day now and I'll get it posted right away. I know it's mostly the same schools that competed last year - South St. Paul, Pekin (IL), last year's grand champion Xavier, Davenport Central, Hannibal, Central Lee and I assume Fort Madison - I believe 12 groups in competition.
Admission is $10, which includes a program. There will be lots of good food available throughout the event. Special guests will be the show choir from Mount Mercy University, who will perform in exhibition late in the afternoon before the daytime awards.
As of late December there are 12 groups coming from Iowa, Minnesota, Illinois and Missouri. We have room for a few more groups. Don't miss out on this fun competition. Contact Marlene DePriest today to reserve your spot.
