Club Chair Report Chris Howard
|March 13: Our class members
again did themselves proud by hosting an excellent dance
with the theme of "Spring Fever". Decorations
were excellent thanks to the help provided by Sharon,
Scott, Deb, Leo, Erica, Anne Marie, Tammy, Steve, and
Debbie. Dave Perrault provided great calling, keeping the
pace up, the call combinations interesting, and the level
exactly right for our own class and visitors from other
clubs. With no round dancing, we all had plenty of
opportunity to square dance. Turkey Town, with 8 dancers,
and Concord Coach, with 12 dancers, retrieved their
banners at the dance. There were also 5 guests from other
clubs along with 29 dancers from BCS.
Remaining BCS dances:

Shawn Cuddy is calling Plus, George McGibbon is calling Mainstream, Bernie Porter is cueing and Don Carleton will be doing Country Line Dancing. This is NOT a dance to miss!!! The cost for the evening is $10 per person at the door BUT we can get a group rate of $7 per person ONLY IF we can commit to at LEAST eight dancers in advance. CAN WE DO IT????? I have 3 so far, who else would like to join the party?

Class Chair Report Steve White
|The class hosted its second dance on March
13th. There was a great turnout for the dance and the
class did a great job decorating for this dance. Special
thanks to Scott and Sharon for hosting the dance and to
all the people who helped with the setup and takedown for
The final big event for the class will be Graduation on April 19th. The class has been working very hard to prepare for graduation and our 11 class members are looking forward to becoming full club members soon. It would be wonderful to have a strong turnout of club members to welcome these new members into our club at graduation. I hope to see everyone there to join in the fun and games!!
