Thank you!!

I am writing a story for the upcoming issues of SNC Quarter Notes about the fans who have been named Chaser of the Month. The story will probably appear over the next few issues of the magazine (5 or 6 COTM featured per issue). I have a couple of questions regarding your participation in this story:
1. Can we use your real name used or would you prefer to be referred to by your screen name?
2. Can you please provide a photo to represent yourself in the story? (Can be a photo of you or anything you use online to represent yourself if you don’t want your actual photo used in the story.)
Please answer the following questions:
1. How did you discover Straight No Chaser?

2. What was it about SNC that made you become a devoted “Chaser”?

3. What is your favorite Straight No Chaser song?

4. What is your most memorable Straight No Chaser concert experience?

5. Anything else you would like to share about your experiences as a Chaser?

Thank you for participating in this story.

Please email reply to janab[at]rocketmail.com. THANKS!!!

Thanks for posting pictures and details about the show- it makes my SNC withdrawal a little easier!

All Chasers are excited for those attending their first show becasue we've all been there. We know the thrill of seeing them "Live" for the 1st time and the meet & greet afterward.

Nesa's picture

Front row!! How lucky!! :D I'm so glad you got to say hello. Aren't they so sweet?

Kelly-Anne's picture

oooo are you going to upload it here? :)

Kelly-Anne's picture

How long did the meet and greet take? We'll definitely try and stay, but we have to meet some friends after the show so depends :(

Kelly-Anne's picture

Oh wow, you were lucky then ! :) We're going to try and get there soon on Saturday as ours aren't assigned. Will let you know what I think once I get back home. We'll be in London Thursday - Monday. Can't wait ! I bet you're still on a high from the show :)

Kelly-Anne's picture

That's great !! I've been waiting to hear from you hehe :)
Did you have to get there very early for front row or were those seats assigned? Were there many people there?? How long was the show? Tell me all :D I'm so excited !

EileenR's picture

Thanks, Mel! Tell the boys hello for me when you see them next week!

Kelly-Anne's picture

yey me too !! :D

Kelly-Anne's picture

Aw no, that's a shame :/ well don't feel too bad about it, you're gonna have such a great time and I'm sure they'll do more UK tours in the future :) What's your countdown now?? hehe!

Kelly-Anne's picture

Well you'll have to tell me all about it when you get back :) I can't wait. Hope you guys have an amazing time!

Kelly-Anne's picture

Do you know many people going?? I've only heard of a couple people going to the show in London!

Kelly-Anne's picture

Oh my God.. you've only got a couple of weeks left ! ahhh ! I bet you're so excited !! Have you booked train tickets etc yet? :)

Nesa's picture

Even more exciting! You're going to love it! I enjoyed my first concert on the 17th, and I was in balcony seats, so I know you're going to have a ball in the second row!

Nesa's picture

So exciting!! Oh, you're going to be so close! Lucky ... how many concerts have you been to?

Nesa's picture

Oh, lucky you! You get to see them in two months :) Do you have seats close to the stage?

Nesa's picture

Fantastic! I'm so glad I discovered them. I can't imagine going through life and not knowing they existed now :)

Nesa's picture

:) It sure is nice to meet you! How long have you been a Chaser?

Nesa's picture

Since we've both been struck with Sluggz fever, I think it would be fun getting to know you! I'm a new Chaser here so I'm still getting to know other Chasers :)

KristinC's picture

Thanks for the congrats - I'm in shock!

Kelly-Anne's picture

Thanks :) x

Kelly-Anne's picture

Oh wow, you're lucky that show is seat allocated.. I'm imagining all the SNC fans running and fighting to get theirs in London LOL ! I hope this isn't the case :)

Kelly-Anne's picture

just one more question hehe.. how early are you planning on arriving - as seats aren't allocated and all...

Kelly-Anne's picture

Kelly-Anne's picture

Looking into booking a hotel - eee can't wait :)

Very exciting !! :) Will look into hotels, etc soon ! Have you seen the new six pack CD to be released soon?

Kelly-Anne's picture

No leave nor flights booked.... but bought the tickets yesterday anyway lol ! wooohooo :)

Kelly-Anne's picture

Haven't been able to confirm leave etc yet... think I was a bit too eager too soon. :( I hope I'm not disappointed! Do you think they will sell out?

My dad has been an avid golfer for years and still, at 86, occasionally breaks his age when shooting 18 holes. He got a hole-in-one the week before his birthday this year. :-) I tell you that because several years ago, he and some friends had a chance to go to St. Andrew in Scotland. It was all arranged, but then his brother, who had been very ill, took a turn for the worse, so he stayed home. I felt so bad for him missing that, and he never got another chance to go. I think his buddies brought him a souvenir or two, but that's not quite the same.

I'm confused.... what would I need to attend a support group for? ;-p

ngj3's picture

Fever is under control... flares up now and then, but I'm managing! My MRL inhibitors seem to be working!

flyergirl97's picture

mel2bell84, really sorry you have to wait even longer now. But hang in there, it will be much worth the wait, you'll see.

ngj3's picture

Still no word as to why?

ngj3's picture

Sorry, Mel.... did anyone say why? :(

ngj3's picture

I prefer black and white myself.... much cleaner look. Sepia is also nice. There are photos of all the guys, but they are larger versions of the collage...

ngj3's picture

I noticed that is where Mike will be celebrating his birthday this year....

ngj3's picture

Do you live anywhere near Dumfries U.K.?

ngj3's picture

I don't think you'll have any adverse reactions.... maybe loss of speech, uncontrollable smiling, a little shakiness, possible drool..... those are some of the most common side effects! ;-)

ngj3's picture

Maybe you should consider taking POG resistamines? ;-)

ngj3's picture

When you find "Loch Luginbill" just be sure to take pictures! ;-)

flyergirl97's picture

mel2bell84, well you better start preparing yourselves for the M&G. If you can get passed MIke, you should be ok. Let me know how it goes. Good Luck, and glad to hear there are more and more "converts" out there. LOL

ngj3's picture

Glad you are a considerably safe distance away!

ngj3's picture

That's uber awful.... I don't understand why it would lead to rioting. So sad.... You aren't anywhere near all the ruckus, are you?
