Night Before Christmas - Contest Delayed to Christmas 2020

I personally apologize for anyone that was planning on participating in our Twas the Night Before Christmas - 2019 Story Telling Contest we announced before Christmas. John Harrington ( Computer John )

We wanted to create awareness of our new www.CassPod.com  Cass Area PodCast Portal. We wanted to invite folks to try their skills in a fun Holiday way. Unfortunately I did not consider that in-order for such a contest ( seems simple enough ) has many moving parts and in order to be fair and successful - many volunteers would be required. Especially several credible and non-partial Judges - are required minimum of 3 Judges and as of 12/10/2019 we have only one. We therefore decided to delay the contest to next year. Sorry about that. If anyone has been diligently practicing, please email / share your MP3 w/special email address: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. we will make avail at www.CassPod.com  for everyone to enjoy. Good News! We have contracted with a genuine Grandmother - to record this famous poem - to share with everyone - on 12/24/2019 - we will post it at www.CassPod.com  and on the 12/18/2019 Newsletter ( so you can listen together and get those Kiddo's to sleep on 12/24/2019
Again sorry for my poor preparation. Email Me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. w/comments & or suggestions.
