Many have already been made aware, but circumstances beyond our control have caused Dixie District to have to cancel the 2017 Harmony Explosion Camp.
It is unfortunate, and we certainly apologize for disrupting any preliminary plans that schools, students, and educators may have made. We are expecting to have the camp again next year - date, time and location to be announced.

It is my pleasure to announce that ALL SEVEN of Dixie’s Judging Applicants officially became Society Contest & Judging Candidates and TWO of Dixie’s Super Certified SNG Judges were, again, officially given full Judge Certification. This brings the number of Certified Dixie District Judges to THIRTEEN with SIX Dixie CANDIDATES and ONE Harmony Inc MUS Candidate who we have "adopted" into our distinguished judging cadre! They are;
CA: Russell Bell, Paul Blazek, and Lynn Trapp
MUS: Melody Hine (HI)
SNG: Aaron Evens, DC Nash, and Mike O’Neill
Certified SNG: Brandon Guyton and Chad Guyton
We will now be following these 7 Candidates through 2 more years of Guest Judging for four seasons of District Conventions as they prepare for invitation to the 2019 Category School where all current invited Certified Judges and Candidate Judges will be tested to become Certified Judges in their chosen category for an additional THREE YEARS.
Please join me in congratulating Brandon & Chad, and for these seven outstanding Candidates for their commitment, hard work, training, and attaining this second huge step in preparation to serve our entire Society as SCJC Certified Judges!
The Dixie District stands behind ALL of you and will be here to help along the way.
