Anyone going to the Dance in Columbus?
Is anyone driving up to the Saturday night contra dance in Columbus?
Here's the URL, http://www.bigscioty.com/index.html
. It's the Contrarians, with Kate Powers calling.
I am planning on driving to the dance, if anyone wants to rideshare (I drive a four door Honda Civic).
If you're interested, email me at adaleATmerlynproductions.com. Current Mood: curious

We are talking about meeting for dinner at about 6 at subway tonight. Since I'm calling, I need to be out early and to the dance hall to be ready for the beginner's workshop at 7:30. If experienced folks can be at the dance hall at 7:30 and wouldn't mind being paired up with some of the new people, I would greatly appreciate the assistance!

Contra Calendar Again
Since there aren't many dances this summer, and I needed a break, I went through and added the band and callers for the dances this summer (except the Monday dances) where they were available. A lot of them are not yet available on the web pages. There are some good bands and callers coming up this summer.
I was just updating the calendar with the summer dances. There are significantly less dances in the summer than the rest of the year. That's good, that'll give me time for some of the other things I need to do in the summer without feeling like I'm being pulled away from one thing I like to do another thing I like. Some of us have been talking about a camping trip later in the summer - maybe the gorge or something.

Over Memorial day weekend, there is a 12 hour dance in North Carolina called Contrathon. Good dancers, lots of fun, and it's only $30 or so. Is anyone interested in sharing a road trip to Contrathon? It's in the blue mountain ridge area. Schedule wise, my plans are:
Friday: Leave after work (hopefully 5ish for everyone who goes). Get to campgrounds around midnight (ugh)
Saturday: Morning and afternoon to enjoy the mountains. Apple barn dance held in Boone from 8 to 11:30 (lots of fun)
Sunday: Contrathon: 10am-10pm of dancing.
Monday (Memorial day...should be a day off): Begin trek home as early as possible.
It's limited to 200, and you need to preregister, but it's well woth the trek!

Lexington Friday, who's going?
I know Frank's at Trillium Twirl (Loser)
Janet's off playing with rocks (See Above)
The band is Schrodinger's Cats and the caller is Jane Ewing, neither of which means much to me...except if the band doesn't play from within a box that has a geiger counter a radioactive substance and some cyanide that I'll be very disappointed.
I might get out of work as early as 5, definitely by 6. I'll know around lunch time if I have time for dinner. Who's with me?

Who wants to eat where tonight? (Ryan: your vote for Subway has been duly counted). I'm totally pyched about keeping my dinner down this week, so I'm up for anything....

Who's dancing this weekend? Lexington? Berea? I'm interested in going, but won't finalize my plans till Friday.
|Tuesday, March 11th, 2008|
Friday - Lexington - Liz Natter and Squeaky Reels. We'll probably need to leave about 6, grab dinner on our way down there, to get there at 8.
Saturday - Columbus - Black River Iron Works from Oberlin. Should we plan on Mongollion BBQ for dinner? We haven't done that in a while. I guess that depends on if Juliet is coming. If so, we should pick something different - chinese maybe, or pizza. We could meet at 5:30ish for dinner then drive up there to be there at 8.
Who's going? We may have to take two cars.

Wrote another couple of dances on random scraps of paper, figured I'd put them somewhere before I lost the paper. Comments/Criticisms invited. I haven't tested these with pieces of paper, salt-shakers, chess pieces or any other semi-legitimate means of making sure they actually work and progress, etc. but I think they do.( Wave Particle DualityCollapse )
I came up with the title for that one and then the dance while trying to fit something around the sequence balance slide, balance slide, do-si-do, swing. I think I like that sequence, although the more I think about it maybe I don't ; ).( UntitledCollapse )
In general, I think B1 is pretty boring for all parties involved, but nothing else I could come up with really fit.

It's not looking good for me to make it to the dance tomorrow night. I'm still pretty sick and barely able to stand. If I'm feeling better tomorrow I may try to come hang out at least but I suspect I'll still be too weak to do much dancing. If you decide to meet for dinner, I'll try to make it if I am doing any better.
singalong before Pigtown
I'm having a singalong right before the Pigtown Fling.

Cincinnati just posted on their site that tonight's dance has been cancelled due to the weather. May the gods have mercy on our souls!!!

So this week we're going to go back to the regular standby and meet at Subway at 6:30 for dinner. Hopefully I'll have all my work done by then (since it's due at 5:00)! In case you've forgotten the Subway is just north of the dance on Route 4, a couple blocks north of Chris's street.

If you are planning to join us tonight for dinner at Jade Buffet please let me know so I have an idea how big a table to get.

I nearly forgot to ask people about dinner tomorrow night. I'm guessing Subway again? Or are there other ideas? 6:30?

Monday's dance is Jim, John, Eloise and Chris with Jim Vogt calling (hopefully he won't call a no partner swing dance). Dinner will be at 6:30 at Subway on Route 4 again ... hope to see everyone there. I will be minus one person, unless someone else picks her up.
