Article for Round Up October 2012

Welcome to our club news.

It was indeed a shock to hear the news of the passing of Laurie Nankevil given that he was only dancing at the club the week prior and seemed full of life.  Laurie was a long standing loyal member of the club, both square & round dancing.  Whilst Laurie did not dance with us from night 1 it was close having been a regular dancer since the club moved to Cooinda Centre in 1995, and having danced for many years prior to that. His passion for dancing was only surpassed by that for his family and cars and having lived in both the city & country was never short of a story and was always willing to entertain us with his violin.  He will be sadly missed.

Thank you to Danae and her committee for a good convention.  We had 2 dressed sets represent us and thank you to Brian & Judy, Milton & Trish, Karen & Carl, Peter & Dianne, Bob & Brenda, Virginia & Malcolm, Greg & Marilyn and David & Claire.  The outfits matched the theme and looked great.  Thanks to Brenda & Virginia who were the organisers.

September has been busy with a come & try afternoon on the 2nd at the Hallett Cove Sports & Community Centre, thanks to Malcolm, Virginia, Anne, Greg, Marilyn & Melissa for helping out and dancing.  We had our fathers day dance on the 4th with Les making some homemade Bailey’s Irish cream and all the men receiving a packet of “Menz” fruchocs.  

Happy Dancing from Anne & Les
