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.
On 1/17 we successfully retrieved our banner from Brecksville with 11 Solo’s attending the dance called by Mike Sumpter. Thanks to Bob, Barb, Terry, Bill, Susan, Spanky, Frank, Lenny, Carolyn, Gary, Ron and Jan. I hope that I did not miss anyone but if I did please except my apologies and my thank you for being there. I think that there was 6 squares up and dancing with 2 squares during the hot hash. I updated the name list with Gary’s name thanks to Barb’s memory.
On 11/23 we danced to Gene Hammond with as many as 5 squares. Gene had us do some unique formations like the one with 4 squares in one formation. Betty Clay won the free dance pass and Jan Waryk won the pie provide by Lenny Smith for the cake walk. A Brecksville dancer took home the 50-50. We announced that we had a successful banner retrieval from Brecksville on 11/15 and promptly returned our banner as they raided us at the dance. We also had dancers from Broken wheel at the dance.
Brecksville, Medina and Hubs are now have one of our banners.
