Sweet Adelines convention cancelled

From the Sweet Adelines web site:

We closely monitored the situation in New Orleans and the surrounding areas in relation to Hurricane Katrina. In consultation with Conferon and various New Orleans officials, we have made a decision to not hold the convention in New Orleans. Our goal, if possible, is to hold the convention in an alternative location over the same dates, October 4-8, 2005. As soon as we are able to obtain additional information, we will notify the membership via the Web site and e-mails. Our biggest concern right now is for the safety of our members and other residents in the area. Our thoughts and heartfelt concern are extended to them.
