We danced 4 squares at our 3/28 student level dance and had 5 students in attendance.
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.
Thanks to Denise, Tom, Susan, Fran, Don, Carolyn, Gary and Beth we had a successful banner retrieval from Media Squares who has had our banner since 9/1/2013. The only other banners that we have out are at Brecksville and Hubs.
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
John Ramsey called our first Plus level dance of 2014 on 1/10 and we danced 5 squares at times. Broken Wheel came with enough to raid our banner which was great to have them with us as usual. Caroline won the cake walk prize which was brought by Carolyn
Our theme of the evening was PJs and Pies so several of our members and guests showed up in their jammies which you can see below in the picture that was taken at the dance.
The free dance pass given to a member that had donated refreshments for the snack table went to Lori and then Lori drew my wife’s ticket for the 50/50 drawing.
On 12/13/2013 we had our first student level dance for the 2013-2014 year. Tom Strickland was the caller for the dance and we had 6 students attend the dance. Lake Erie Squares banner raided with 13 members. We danced 5 squares most of the night. Terry Kremzar won the free dance pass for bringing some goodies for the snack table and even though the president held the bucket of 50-50 tickets above her head, Terry succeeded in drawing her husband’s ticket. The cakewalk prize that Norm and Marilyn Ostroske provided was won by Jeff Zemito.
Below is a sampling of the pictures taken at the dance.
We had a great time dancing to Ed Pabst at Brecksville with 8 squares dancing at various times during the evening.
We were successful in retrieving our banner at Brecksville on 11/15. Terry and Bill Kremzar, Barb and Bob Davis, Betty Clay, Ed Donohoe, Frank Macuga and I think Ron Soukup and Jan Waryk signed in as Solo’s so we had enough dancers to do the retrieval. If I am wrong about the names please let me know so that I can give proper credit.
We now have to get our banners back from Medina and Hubs and also start raiding so that we get other clubs banners for them to come to Solo’s to retrieve it back.
