High Point ....Hilton Head... Virginia Beach........ FINALLY INTERNET!

Hey all... as i write this i am sitting on a balcony overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Yes, that's right, we are in Virginia Beach right on the Boardwalk. I have not blogged in a couple of days because of the lack of internet access in the south so let me catch you up. We arrived in High Point, NC after a long 12 + hour bus ride and one nasty thunderstorm. When we arrived our hosts graciously met us there and took us home. I was with Bob. Bob was a member of the glee club in the past and this is the 5th time he has hosted us in High Point. We got to spend some time (Myself, Michael Martin and Andrew Till) listening to the 1975 High Point Concert. It was amazing to see how the sound has changed over the years. We then had a great concert with a packed church. It may have been that we sang at church earlier that day, it could have been the energy we expended at the YMCA or it could be the wonderful publicity that Bob did. Either Way High Point, NC was a great stay.

The Next Morning we departed for Hilton Head Island, SC. When we arrived we quickly went home with our hosts and then were right back on the concert scene. This concert was set up by my host Bud, and the Hilton Head Island University of Michigan Alumni Association. Once again we had a great concert and did a "tour prank" on Doc by wearing long john silver paper pirate hats during Michigan Men. It was hilarious but we all had a sense that Doc knew that our prank was coming during that concert. We then went back with our hosts. The next day we had a free day in Hilton Head Island. Myself and Danny Dunlap were given passes to the Hilton Head Island Country Club and we used the workout facilities as well as the pool, and then headed down to the beach. It was not the greatest beach day because it was overcast, but none the less it was fun getting to be by the Atlantic Ocean. We then all got back together with our hosts and had a great picnic with lots of food. Doc was presented with a book about Hilton Head Island on behalf of all of us.

This morning we left for Virginia Beach. It was a long ride to get here but it was well worth it. Day 2 of 3 resting before our next concert and we are all doing great. We had a certain activity for four members of each voice part and the Basses were victorious followed by Tenor 2s, Baritones and then Tenor 1s. It is great getting to relax on this balcony overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. We will be in Philadelphia tomorrow and it will be a lot of fun and we will be well rested for Friday's concert.
