Thank you all for your support in purchasing the 2023 Geek Book! No further online orders will be taken. Those who have purchased should visit us in the Hospitality Room to pick up their books.

Women of Note is proud and excited to be producing our thirteenth annual Barbershop Geek Book!! I'm sure it will be a lucky one!

For those who have no clue what it is, it’s a guide filled with information that you will want to have with you throughout the week at our International Convention and Contests in Grand Rapids, Michigan!

This year, we are excited to be producing our Making Music in Michigan edition of the Geek Book for all to enjoy!

Inside will be:

  • Scores and rankings of all the contestants
  • Space to write down the names of songs
  • Additional facts and info about contestants you wouldn't normally know unless you knew them personally!
  • A synopsis of the judging categories and room for you to judge for yourself -- see how well you match wits with the judges!
  • Room for you to draw the costume of the contestants -- maybe they are wearing something that will inspire your costume committee to change your outfits!
  • Trivia and History about Michigan AND Harmony, Inc.
  • Puzzles to keep you busy between quartets and choruses
  • A place in the back to take notes and to write down the email addresses of all the new friends you have met
  • Even a page of tags you can learn!

This book is perfect for creating a lasting memory of this year's Grand Rapids convention. Not only will it help you follow along, it will help you keep track of everything you saw and heard the whole week! I know a lot of you like drawing the costumes in as well.

We will reserve a copy for those who pay in advance, and the rest will be sold on a first-come first served basis. We do not know how large the demand will be and cannot ensure we will have enough books at the door, so to make sure you get yours, you must order and pay in advance! The cost is $15 USD per book. Deadline to purchase is October 27th.

You will be able to pick up the Barbershop Geek Book in the Hospitality room any time the room is open on Wednesday and then in front of the contest venue Thursday morning until the first break. After that, the table will be closed! If you know you will not be at IC&C before Thursday, please make a note in your payment of who will be picking up your book on your behalf. 

Thank you and see you at IC&C!
