“The Sunshine Region held its annual “convention” at the SunPAC Centre in Brisbane on the 28th April, hosted by “The Clippers” chorus.  The format of the day, after a bit of hair pulling, was a success. We undertook a change to the traditional way of things and held the chorus event first in the morning followed by the quartets after morning tea. This enabled the quartets to warm up for the qualifications and also ensured we had a good audience to cheer them on. We also were entertained by a number of our lady choruses on the day who were invited to be part of the competition. This gave them an opportunity to perform their competition songs in front of an appreciative audience, prior to their national event in Hobart in May. A few of our MD’s were on their toes as they not only directed the men but also the ladies so there was some quick running around the loop and some serious planning to make it all happen. 

A coaching session was held on the Sunday at Ipswich hosted by Minor Chords with our 3 judges and our CA taking the reins during the morning sessions.

All in all, the format of the days program worked well. As our region is wide spread, many of our men travelled a fair distance to attend and their efforts to see it through were appreciated.

Our regional event for 2019 will be hosted by High Altitude Harmony in Toowoomba so mark the last weekend in April 2019 as "attending SR regionals".
