Our intrepid editor David Belden has released a new issue of the Dixie Town Crier newsletter. The Town Crier highlights chapter news as submitted by chapter representatives around the district. If you want to share your chapter's activities with the rest of the district see the contact and submission information in the latest issue. The link to the latest issue of the Town Crier, as well as the latest Rebel Rouser, can always be found at the bottom of the web site's home page.

Congratulations to the RSVP chorus from Germantown, TN, the new 2013 Dixie District Chorus Champions.
Phase IV, from Nashville, TN, wins the Dixie 2013 Collegiate quartet contest! Patrick, Kelby, Kyle, Joe (and Elvis) will be the Dixie representatives to the BHS International Collegiate Quartet contest in Toronto, CA this summer. Hop on over to their Facebook page and congratulate them! Second place went to Fiscal Clef.
Because the quartet semi-final session is split into two parts, the second taking place after the chorus contest on Saturday, the results information and top 10 for the finals will not be available until after that session takes place.
Greetings from the President
March 2013, by Larry Deters
Happy 2013 to all Dixie Barbershoppers and your families. I hope you all had a great Valentine's Day bringing joy to lots of people. It has always been one of my most enjoyable singing activities, and it raises some badly needed money for my chapter.
Become a CSR
March 2013, by Jack Martin
I recently sent a note to all Dixie Chapter Presidents to canvas their members for those singers who might be interested in becoming a Chapter Support Representative (CSR) under the leadership of the VP-CSLT, a member of the Dixie District Board of Directors. I haven't received an overwhelming response to date, however maybe I have not given it enough time!

The 2013 Dixie District Harmony Explosion Camp will be held in Huntsville, AL on July 18, 19, and 20th at the University of Alabama, Huntsville. The camp will be for boys up to the age of 22. The attempt to make the camp into a coed format fell short due to funding for this year but will continue to be pursued for future camps.We expect around 100 male campers from our four states in Dixie.
