If you were there when “Daylight” was announced as the winner, you know what a perfect ending we shared at this year’s contest. Congrats to winner Anthony Plourd and all our entrants… we enjoyed your music so very much. Thank you for sharing it with us. Special thanks go to our hard-working panel of judges: Eddie Jason Coven, Gregory Page, Diane Waters, and Steven Ybarra, and to our SDSG volunteers in the trenches: Sandi Shaner, Bridget Brigitte, Ann Rettick, John Pape, Richard Widney, Barby Hattersley, and our MC and DJ Mark Charles Hattersley. We couldn’t have done it without you. Please don’t forget to remember our sponsors, without whom the event would have been far less stimulating: Taylor Guitars,,, and Black Cherry Group. Finally, let’s not forget Country Inns and Suites for allowing us to host the event in their fine hotel, and for providing us with incredibly edible delights including some tasty chocolates which we raffled off on Contest breaks to appreciative SDSG members.

We’re all looking forward to our Holiday networking Party at Humphrey’s on December 8. Contest Judge Gregory Page will be headlining. See you there!
