Carole, with over 20 years experience in the organisation & 5 quartet gold medals brought a wealth of experience to the quartet. Jess had also previously won a quartet gold medal and has been singing with Sweet Adelines since 1996.

BlackJaQ competed together in the Sweet Adeline International Region #34 Convention held in Adelaide, May 2005. This was Linda's first regional competition singing with a quartet!
