SBK Members dominated the final round of competition, and managed to win 3 of the 5 prizes.  Please take a moment to congratulate our Member Patty Caldwell and Gus Stevenson, who took 3rd and 5th places respectively. 


The final winners were:

1.  Rhonda Cougar Couch

2.  Nick Fill

3. Patty Caldwell

4.  Rachael Berkness

5.  Gus Stevenson


All finalists received an "Award of Excellence" Plaque.  The also took several group photos for the San Jose Mercury news, so be sure to check the paper!


Everyone performed well and competition was fiece. Honorable mentions should also be given to Jim Peacock, Tony Le, Erin Goon, Diana Macintal, Jennifer Johnson and Kathy Moore who did a FANTASTIC JOB in the finals.  (And yours truly had a great time too!)

Everyone performed well and competition was fiece.  I also want to congratulate all our members who participated in this event for doing a great job and having a ball.  We had so much fun singing together in the contest and during breaks.
