It’s a two questions and you need to get both correct to win, so ready, set, go:

1. What day did the group literally sign the contract with Atlantic? (your answer should look something like this: _ _/_ _/_ _ _ _)

2. What other significance does this day have for the group?

Good Luck!

coming up on adventures made by chasers....

Good Morning fellow chasers!

In honor of The Twelve Days of Christmas reaching it’s huge milestone, it’s time for another question. Naturally, like everything Straight No Chaser, this one has a twist!!!  A few weeks ago, we ordered the UK release of With A Twist from Amazon. SOMEHOW we ended up with two extra copies. Ok fine, you twisted my arm, we ordered 2 each. So that’s one for each of us and then that leaves two that we have decided we want to give away to you guys! We thought the best way to do this would be on our blog. We’re going to post a trivia question and the first chaser to give us the right answer gets a copy! We’re not giving away both copies this time around, but it will be given away before Gettysburg (or Harrah’s, if you’re not coming to Gettysburg)

We wanted to give you some notice that this would be happening so you could freshen up on all your SNC information. Here’s how it’s going to happen….

Due to some minor scheduling issues, this question will go up Tuesday, at 10:00 am EST (I know this might be tough for some people but if we do it any other time there is no guarantee Megan and I will be able to get online to receive answers)
We’re asking that you send us your answer in an e-mail to SNCadventures@gmail.com.

*Keep your eyes on the blog because we haven’t decided when the next trivia questions will be*

Good luck, Chasers!



Pining for SNC

As I sit here thinking about the second job I start tomorrow (actually this past Tuesday at the time this blog is posted), the planning I need to be doing for the summer camp I work for, and the paperwork I have to get done for my teaching job, it is only natural that my mind is continually wandering to SNC and that I find now a perfectly acceptable time to write a blog. With the Atlantic City dates announced, Amanda and I have had many hours of discussion as to when we will be seeing these amazing guys this summer. Logically, this is the only thing important to me right now, even though real-world responsibilities seem to be getting in my way.


Q&A with the one and only - Ryan Ahlwardt

Have you ever found yourself stopped at a red light, blasting the SNC (which gets you funny looks from all around), and kind of daydreaming? Yeah me too. Have you ever found yourself saying “I wonder if….” and then some crazy question about Straight No Chaser gets stuck in your mind? Yup, Guilty as charged.  Well Megan and I couldn’t hold all these questions in our brains anymore (mainly because we needed room for the Earth Science info), so we wrote them down one day.  I vaguely recall one of us mentioning “wouldn’t it be great if we could get these answered?” Well why couldn’t we? I asked permission and for a little help from Ryan to get the questions answers and he so graciously took some of his precious down time to answer these questions for us. While admittedly the idea to keep these all to myself has crossed my mind on several occasions, the teacher in me knows that I need to practice what I preach and share them. (Besides what kind of chaser would I be if I didn’t! Not one that would be welcomed to ChaserCon LDW 2011 that’s for sure! BTW, LOVE that group, it’s amazing.) Ryan did mention that he sent the list of questions we sent him over to the other guys, but he hasn’t received any answers back (We completely understand, and totally think the guys deserve this time at home to be with their families and friends without Chasers hassling them and if they don’t want to be bothered by us, no offense taken!)

So without further adieu, I would like you to enjoy a little Q&A with the one and only Ryan Ahlwardt :)


In preparation for the AC presale!

SNC Anonymous

So I know Amanda said we would be silent until after our Earth Science MTEL on Saturday, however, today, March 1, 2011, should be marked down in history as the day I completely lost my mind because of my addiction for Straight No Chaser! Many may have believed that it was gone way before now, however, up until this day rational thought was still possible. I equate this to a drug addict going through withdrawals and in dire need of a good fix. It has become a life or death situation…seriously!

I came to the realization today, or in reality I actually let myself acknowledge the fact, that Straight No Chaser will be in Gettysburg on June 10th and that there are a lot of Chasers attending this show.  Between the withdrawal symptoms that have been driving me crazy lately and my insane jealousy, I decided that something had to be done about this! Amanda and I had made the trek to Reading to see them on New Years’ Eve, why couldn’t we journey just a little bit farther to Gettysburg? Oh right, because it’s on a Friday in June and I’m a teacher (hence the distraction tactics and avoidance by my brain up until this day).

So what did I do? I came home from school and did some research! I knew that the tickets for the show would be worth it no matter what the price (duh! SNC is always worth it!), however, I knew that we would have to consider travel costs again. After finding out that hotels are fairly reasonable, I decided to email the principal at my school to see if it was possible for me to get this day off. Being a long term substitute, and not a full-time salaried employee, I have a feeling this will not be a problem (especially since the teacher I’m covering for is on maternity leave, and is planning on returning in May as long as everything goes according to plan).

So as I sit here patiently waiting for a reply…who am I kidding? I am a bundle of emotions, and patience sure isn’t one of them…I am debating SNC rehab, or letting this addiction become a full-blown, out-of-control, force that can no longer be tamed. The first step is admitting I have a problem, right? So, I guess this is an official invitation to all Chasers to SNC Anonymous…where all our Chaser needs are met with padded walls and opulent a cappella music.

Alright, back to a world of stars, volcanoes, oceans, earthquakes, and rocks. When Saturday is over, and I no longer have to force myself to focus on Earth Science, I know that the SNC addiction will become insurmountable. It still amazes me that this addiction can get continually worse. Just when I think it has reached its peak, something else happens to make the climb steeper. My hike up “Mount Straight No Chaser” can be demanding at times, but I have to say I love every minute of it!
