If you’re just getting back into Tanglewood after a couple months away, we welcome you. And want to make sure you know about the Lip Synch Contest on October 20.
Lip Synching is hot right now. It’s a great, fun way to run a fund raiser for a good cause. In our case, the Diversions Committee is sponsoring the night as a way to contribute to the RV Club’s annual Christmas Food Drive.
And just what is it, you ask? You form a team, anywhere from one to a dozen members. You register with The Diversions Committee or just talk to Billie in the Activities Office. Each team, no matter how many members are on it, pays $10 to participate. You choose a song and find appropriate costumes and/or props. And then you get up on the stage and lip synch the song. No singing, no speaking is involved. You need to register your team by October 1, and get a CD of your chosen song to the Tech committee (or Billie) by the tenth.
Judging will be done by the “Applause-O-Meter” method, so be sure to bring your 75 closest friends to cheer for your team. Every member of the winning team will receive a nice prize. All registration money, all 50/50 money, and all admission money ($5) will go to the RV Club’s food drive, to help hundreds of needy people in Highlands County have a good Christmas dinner, and more for later meals. The audience is encouraged to bring their drinks and snacks.
