2010 Song Contest Results

2010 Song Contest Winners Announced

The 2010 SDSG Song Contest, our 19th annual such event, was a great success.  Thanks to our judges Dave Blackburn, Jeff McCullough, Sandi Shaner, and Diane Waters, as well as our sponsors, and, of course, the contestants whose submissions were of a uniformly high caliber.  Less than 10 points separated this year’s top song from the next 15 entries.  What an interesting, original, and well-written collection of music we heard!

Special Thanks go to our SDSG Support Team who pulled yeoman’s duty as our sign in and tabulation crew;  they kept things cool at what could have been major stress points.  John Pape, SDSG’s Webmaster, entered all the data generated by our panel of judges and prepared entrants’ CDs and lyric sheets for the judges and me; and Richard and Susan Widney rolled through the sign-in table storm in style, doing a wonderful job making sure every entry was accounted for.

Finally, I’d like to personally thank Mr. Widney for his support for SDSG.  Over a span of many years, Richard has served the Guild as President and Treasurer, and has been among the most reliable, conscientious, and diligent partners with which I have ever had the pleasure of working.  With this Contest’s conclusion, Richard will be leaving the SDSG Board.  He will be most dearly missed.  Thank you Richard for your service and camaraderie, and best wishes to you, Susan, and your family for the years ahead!
