Nikki Blackmer to coach Jet Cities
Nikki Blackmer will be coaching Jet Cities on Friday and Saturday, February 22-23 in Puyallup and you're welcome to come watch!
Nikki is currently the director of A Cappella Joy Chorus, as well as the lead of the 2017 Sweet Adelines International Quartet Champions, Frenzy. She is talented, dynamic, and fun, and we know when we emerge exhausted at the end of Saturday, we'll be a better chorus because of her!
Our retreat is from 7:00-9:30pm on Friday, then continues on Saturday from 9:00am-5:30pm. It will be held at Puyallup United Methodist Church, 1919 West Pioneer Avenue in Puyallup, WA, 98371. We hope to see you there.
Congratulations to Jet Cities Chorus member extraordinaire Sue Middleton, winner of the 2017 Heart of the Northwest Award. A member of Jet Cities Chorus since 1989, Sue is also a dual member with Pride of Portland (and past dual member of Pacific Sound). During her years with Jet Cities, Sue has been President/Team Leader (three times!), Membership Chair, Music Team Chair, Publicity Chair, Show Chair, and webmaster. She’s currently the Visual Team Leader, which oversees the costume, hair, makeup and choreography committees, and has been a member of the front row for all but one year of her tenure in the chapter. Additionally, Sue is (or was) involved with various activities and committees with her “second homes” at Pride of Portland and Pacific Sound.
Sue’s contributions extend far into Region 13, as well: She created and still maintains the Region 13 website, convention website, and Members Only site, and started our Facebook page. She’s the Communications Coordinator for the Region 13 Convention Team, a Regional Faculty member, past member of the Education Team, and was the editor of InTune for nearly ten years. Our “go to” designer, Sue has created numerous convention, SET, and quartet logos; show flyers, programs, and signs for various groups and events. She also has served terms on the Regional Management Team as Team Leader, Communications Coordinator, and Chapter Coordinator.
Jet Cities noted this about Sue on their nomination form: “Sue has served on countless committees--both at the chorus and regional level--but her real strength is behind the scenes. We’re sure everyone who has worked with Sue would agree with us that she is a real asset. She is always ready to help with whatever needs doing. Whether she's talking a chorus member through accessing Groupanizer or creating the Region 13 contest program, Sue is on it! She does her work in the background, not expecting recognition, and lives the Heart of the Northwest by willingly sharing her time and energy make her choruses and region better.”

Jet Cities members are huge Seahawks fans
Have you heard Jet Cities' (now famous!) Seattle Seahawks "12 Wo-Man" song yet? Written by our own Melissa Martin, the chorus has had the thrill and privilege to sing it to football fans via YouTube, on KJR's Brian Abker show, and at community rallies.
We're POSITIVE that all our good vibes helped the Hawks to rally and win the NFC Championship this weekend. Now we're getting ready to do the same for the Superbowl.
We hope YOU make a date to join Jet Cities Chorus for our 12th Annual Sweetie Pie Social. You'll hear the chorus at our first performance with new director, Ken Potter, plus special guests, including our chorus quartets Wink, The 4 Get Me Nots, Peppermint Twist, and Mischief.
