So...being all the way up here in Canada, I didn't really know how far away all the Chasers were from each other. I had (what I thought was) a brilliant idea to start an interactive map - Chasers, please let me know where you are in the world! To use the map:
1. Click on the link below
2. Click on the Edit button beside the title of the map, "ChaserNation"
3. Zoom in or out of the map (by using the scroll button on the mouse) or drag the map around (click and drag) as necessary to find your city. Please, no actual street addresses!
4. On the map, click on the icon of the blue push pin

I was thinking today about how blessed I've been.....I've enjoyed so much of SNC due to the generosity of others. It's really amazing when you think about it...how people have come together from all over to help each other and share the love of Straight No Chaser's music...
Sometimes I hear from people who can not afford to go to a show near them because of a financial need. I hear this primarily from single moms. Some have never been able to attend a show at all. =(
I am posting this discussion because I would like to brainstorm with you all about how we can help get these folks to a show.
I was thinking this morning how fun it would be to create an SNC themed Christmas tree. It's given me a kooky idea. :)
First, I posted on SNC's FB page, asking them to offer a new/different ornament each year so we could build a collection. But then I thought, why wait?? There are so many amazing crafty Chasers out there, and how many of us would love an SNC themed three? (if at least to take a picture) So here's what I propose. An ornament exchange. If you would like to participate, let me know in the comments below, and we will get this party started!
