Solo Square Dance club dance on 5/23 with Tom Strickland

We had six squares up dancing at one time at the dance and had enough to dance seven but did not have enough guys that could dance the ladies part, now that is a switch as there usually not enough guys.

We had dancers from Hubs, Brecksville, Broken Wheel, Buckeyes, North Coast, Johnny Appleseed, Marschmellows and Lake Erie who banner raided. I hope that I did not miss any clubs as I lost the sheet that I wrote that information onto. Thanks for coming everyone.

Ruth Ann from Lake Erie won the cakewalk prize that was provided by Betty Clay, Barb Davis won the free pass for providing snacks and Ray Marsch from Marschmellows won the fifty-fifty drawing.

This will be the last dance being held at St. PaulĀ  until September 2014. Our Summer dances will be at the Berea Masonic Hall just across the parking lot from St. Paul Lutheran Church.

Went to Lake Erie Squares on 4/5 and came home with their banner

We ended up having an impromptu banner raid when 8 Solo dancers showed up at the Lake Erie Square’s dance on 4/05. Thanks to Don, Betsy, Jan, Ron, Bill and Terry for signing in as Solo’s so that with Barb and I it made the banner raid possible.

A successful Banner Raid of Medina on 4/4

Eight Solo dancers danced to Dick Mackey at Medina Squares on 4/4/2014 and since they did not have our banner (my mistake) we had a successful Banner Raid. The dancers from Solo’s that raided were Sherrie, Beverly, Jeff, Bert, Don, Shelby, Barb and me. At one time there were 5 squares up and dancing and a couple of Medina students trying their hand at a dance

Gene Hammond introduce the angels and students to some new challenges and Frankie taught and lead some line dances between tips. Circulators were there for a banner retrieval and graciously provided a free pass to their hotdog dance which was won by Solo’s student Denise.

Small attendance at our Valentines dance

I guess that there were a lot of celebration of valentines day on Friday 2/14 as we had only 2 squares dancing to Gene Hammond. Many thanks to the Brecksville club as they supplied a little more then 1 square in their banner raid. We all had a good night with Gene challenging us with some calls and formations that required us to think and not dance on auto-pilot. Frankie also gave our dancers who wanted to line dance some exercise. Carolyn supplied a beautiful valentine cake for our cakewalk.

The Mark Moorehead Memorial student dance was a success on 1/24

We had up to 8 squares dancing to caller Tom Strickland at our Mark Moorehead Memorial dance and in those 8 square were 8 students. The night was blustery out side but Tom Strickland warmed us up with his dance calls and every one that I talked to had a fun time. I have uploaded the pictures that I took at the dance to our Mark Moorehead album at
