A.S.O.B. Awards Banquet

After the dust has settled from the competition, we will sit and break bread together.

We will start off with a no host cocktail hour, before sitting down to a fabulous dinner.

After our meal we will find out who impressed the judges with their musical talents and costuming. Those that have proved themselves will be awarded for those efforts. It is also that time that your slate of officers are sworn in and take their newly elected offices for the ensuing year.
