The District will have JumboTrons in WILDWOOD this year!
There will be JUMBO-TRONS (large screen projectors) at the District contest again this year.
This will make the contestants easier to see from the back of the auditorium, and
you can place advertisements on the JumboTron to be shown between competitors!!!
Whether you want to advertise for your chapter show, or if you just want to wish your son/dad/grandfather 'Good Luck',
you may purchase an advertisement time list of optional packages.
Your ad will be placed in the PowerPoint Presentation slide show
and run on a loop all weekend long between competitors - just like INTERNATIONAL!!
You may create your OWN slide, or just give us the text for your ShoutOut message and we'll make a slide for you.
Create your own Video and we'll include that, based on its duration!!
Here's the on-line ordering page.
You pay via PayPal at the time of the order. EARLYBIRD PRICING DEADLINE IS FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 19, NOON!!
After that, you can still purchase a ShoutOut, it'll just cost you more.
Early-bird Event Registrations expire ONE MONTH prior to the contest.
FALL CONVENTION Heads Up....
This year, the Fall Convention in Wildwood, NJ will be much later (about 3 weeks later) than usual.
Convention weekend is October 24-26, which is well into the hibernation period for Wildwood.
As such, many of the usual hotels and restaurants will not be available. Therefore, everyone planning to attend the Fall convention is encouraged to make hotel reservations as early as possible.
We will be using a Jumbo-Tron again at the Fall Convention, and selling ads to air on the Jumbo-tron just like we did last year.
Get your ads ready now
Fall District early-bird expiration is: Sep 24th
There will be no webcast this Fall.
