Some of us like the scenic adventure of public transportation and Sky Train takes us from PHX to the Light Rail station at 44th St. Lt Rail takes us to Country Club, and bus 112 takes us down Country Club to Holiday Inn. It's my plan, but I hate to even mention it because odds are nobody else will consider public transportation.
To get a jump start on your quartet weekend, plan to arrive on Wednesday, April 4th. The Arizona Quartet Club, (formerly the Quartet Chapter), will again host an evening of quartet singing at the American – Italian Club, 7509 N. 12th St., Phoenix, AZ. It all begins at 5:30 pm with the spaghetti buffet provided by the club for a mere $11 a plate with meatballs, salad and bread. Quartet time begins at 7:00pm and there will be several rounds of ‘draw’ quartets. Please contact Jim Milner at firstname.lastname@example.org early and make transportation arrangements between the hotel and the Arizona American Italian Club.

Thanks to Charlie Nardin, we will once again be having dinner at The Four Peaks Brewery. Our group we start being seated at 5:00 PM. Our space will be reserved until 6:30 and that has been plenty of time for us to have a drink, something to eat and sing a few songs. As the last two years we need to be gone by 6:30. We have estimated 30+\- to attend.
Parade of Quartets show, 8pm.
And there will always be three other singers available to bust a chord just about any time you desire.
The final schedule of events will be posted as we firm up golf information.
