        STATE BETA CLUB CONVENTION IN GREENSBORO

          FRIDAY, JANUARY 28, 2022 - SATURDAY, JANUARY 29, 2022

        I will travel to Greensboro on that Thursday afternoon.  In the past we have all gone down the night before so we could get some practice time on stage.  This would also ensure that props and people are there for morning practice/competitions on time. This will allow time to practice prior to getting on stage.

         

        I also need to know ASAP what Beta students will not have a chaperone so I can plan rooms accordingly.  If your child plans to attend the State Convention and needs me to be the “Mama Bowles” chaperone, please let me know.  910-290-1839   kbowles@duplinschools.net

        Parents can make their own reservations at the hotel of their choice- 

        Drury Inn and Suites  right across the street from the Koury Convention Center

        Drury Inn has a free hot breakfast.
