May Dances!

11th - Roger Putzler is calling for our Mexican Fiesta Dance.  We've been waiting for him to have a spare moment to call for us and finally it has arrived.  When he retired he thought he would just call once in a while, but now he is busier than when he was working and it is hard to sign him up for a dance. We will have a taco bar and/or Mexican-oriented finger foods, but we depend on all our members bringing something, so stay in touch.  Roger is a fun caller and we all look forward to seeing him again.

25th - K.C. Curtis is calling. K.C. has called for the Toe Draggers in Kinton, Oregon, just outside of Beaverton since 2006.  He has one of the nicest singing voices around and a good sense of humor. He also sings (and calls) in harmony with the Wild Cards.  We have all enjoyed K.C.'s calling whenever we are lucky enough to have him.  So come out in full measure and enjoy a fun night of dancing. (Note, he and Peter Wood switched dance nights.) So, if you couldn't come to dance to K.C. in April ... you have another chance in May!

April Dances

April 13 - Spring Fling was called by Renee Ruud from Oregon City.  And we had an added surprise with Les Seeley showing up as well.  What at night!

We had the pleasure of Renee's wonderful voice when she came down with Les Seeley for our birthday dance last year, and also for our Black Cat Dance this January.  She has called for the Bachelors and Bachelorettes, the Mix and Mingles in Tualatin, and co-called with Les Seeley and Randle Dibble at the USA West convention and has also co-called with Daryl Clendenin.  ReneĆ© been co-teaching plus, basic and mainstream lessons for the River City Dancers, the club she belongs to. We had a good group that just danceed their hearts out and have a great time with ReneĆ©. Thanks Les for adding your harmonies.

April 27 - Peter Wood filled in for K.C. Curtis for this night and he did a great job on such short notice.  Thank you Peter.  We will see you again.  Everyone had a good time and really appreciated your being able to come.  We just don't know what we would have done, except beg Pat Hintz to also call a few mainstream dances, and although she can call, cueing round dancing is her thing.  You saved us all from disappointment.  :-)
