From Richard Howell, President, Southwestern District:

Now that most of the attendees to the BHS International Convention in Salt Lake City are home and recovering, I wanted to extend my heartfelt thanks to all of the tremendous participants from the Southwestern District who represented all of us with pride and that special Barbershop joy.
Our quartets were phenomenal and placed well in a field that was probably the best we've ever heard.
I couldn't help but marvel at our two SWD choruses who placed 11th and 16th in a world-class field of 27.  Well done gentlemen!
And the professionalism and class shown by the VM was something not to be forgotten.  We were so proud to hear the VM join voices with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir in a worldwide TV program on Sunday morning.  These Conventions create special memories for the Barbershop world.

Again, my thanks to all who attended.  Make plans to attend the 2020 Convention in Los Angeles!
