Since 1991, MASCOT, Chapter 28 of the American Singers Club (ASC), has promoted the American Singer hobby in Maryland and the surrounding states. We are a vibrant and growing ASC Chapter engaged in the hobby of raising and exhibiting American Singer Canaries. We presently have 25 members.
We host an Annual Song Contest on the first Saturday of November. Also, we sponsor several other social events during the year including a Picnic in June and a Holiday party in December.
The common thread that keeps us together is the American Singer canary. Our members include some of the most successful and knowledgeable American Singer breeders in the country.
If you would like to learn more about American Singers or MASCOT please email us with your questions. We encourage your interest and, of course, we welcome your membership into our club. We look forward to hearing from you.

2013 Club Events Calendar
MASCOT has set its 2013 events calendar. Click here and mark your calendars to join us on these dates. MASCOT events are always a good time for all. We allocate a few minutes at most gatherings to discuss necessary business activities. But by far most of our time is spent on discussing our birds. Our meetings are great places for American Singer hobbyists of all experience levels to learn more about canaries in general and American Singers specifically . Please come and join the fun. All members and guests are always welcome.
