Article for Round Up June 2012

Welcome to our club news.

‘What a day this has been’ these were some of the words from the song which Les used to open our 17th birthday dance.  And how true they were.  The theme was masquerade and it was good to see so many getting into the theme by wearing masks.  There were 6 sets dancing the final bracket prior to supper with 1 left over.  Whilst that may not be a lot it has been better than in recent years and the atmosphere was great.

The move back to May seems to have done us well.  When explained by Les there was a good reaction from dancers.  This was also mentioned by Jan Stephens Vice President of SASDS who gave us a very complimentary and encouraging speech.

We had some of our beginners attend after having been dancing for only 6 weeks and really appeared to enjoy the experience.

There were a lot of visiting callers.  Thank you to Graham Elliott, Jeff Seidel, Milton McKenzie, Ivan Cooke, Ian Rutter and especially to Les Heaton from Henry Kendall Squares in NSW and Anne Tulloch for cueing.

Greg Megow made the decorations which were very effective.  Thank you to Greg Megow, Marilyn Simpson, Peter Stavast, Malcolm Jeffs & Virginia Thompson for setting up the hall, to Louise Moore for cutting the cake and lastly to all the dancers who attended.  

For those who did not come you missed  a great night.

Happy Dancing from Anne & Les
