MHF Trophy


History of the Most Happy Fellows Trophy
The evening of April 15, 1988, the Sea-Tac Harmony Kings hosted a very special evening called “A Tribute to the Haps.” Roy Bollinger, Shelton Black, along with chapter members and wives pitched in to create an evening to do homage to one of the Society’s best known, most loved and just perhaps the greatest International Championship quartet. 
With the show performance over, Burt Huish, emcee (and past International President from Twin Falls, ID) introduced Shelton Black, President of the Sea-Tac Harmony Kings. “Blacky” expressed his thanks to those who had participated in the show and its preparation. Then he chose this moment to announce the Sea-Tac Chapter’s recognition of the Haps’ contributions to the Evergreen District and the Society. The Harmony Kings have created and sponsored a new perpetual award called “The Most Happy Fellows Trophy.” 
This trophy is to be awarded each year to the quartet that wins the Evergreen District Quartet Prelims contest. The trophy, which stands three feet tall, drew gasps, ooohs, aaahhhs and finally applause from the audience as it was introduced and displayed.

                  written by Lee Vogel, Sea-Tac Chapter B.E.

QCED (Quartet Champions of Evergreen District) is a fraternity of past quartet champions from the Evergreen District of the Barbershop Harmony Society.

The Evergreen District encompasses Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington; as well as Alberta and British Columbia, Canada. Annually, the District holds a competition among its quartets and those who win the District Championship are inducted into QCED. 

QCED also hosts one shows a year at the Ocean Shores Convention Center.. The proceeds are used to support coaching opportunities for quartets in out-lying areas around the District and assist our quartets who will be singing at the BHS International competition.
