2014 Song Contest -- 1 November -- We're Moving to Annapolis
We are pleased to announce that have contracted with the Annapolis Hampton Inn 124 Womack
Drive, Annapolis, MD 21401, telephone: 410-571-0200, to host our 2014 Annual Song Contest. Our
new venue will offer easy access to competitors with the exhibition rooms on the first floor of the
hotel near the entrance. There is also plenty of free parking. And of course there are many notable
historic sites and scenic views in Annapolis. We think it will be an enjoyable location for all.
The Hampton Inn has reserved a bank of rooms for our show at a special rate for attendees. You can
make your reservation on-line at that rate by clicking here: Special MASCOT Room Rate. This offer
expires on 16 September 2014 so please reserve soon.
More details about the show will be forthcoming as we get closer to the event. We look forward to
seeing you at the show!
Andre Dight Interviewed on Radio about Canaries
MASCOT Officer Andre Dight was recently interviewed on WMRA, National Public Radio in Virginia
about his hobby of raising canaries. Click here to replay the program on WMRA's website. You'll
also see a photo of his birds and a link to one of his singers. We always knew Andre was a great
ambassador for our hobby. Now thousands of radio listeners know the same. Thank you Andre for a
job well done!
