    The earlier mentioned factors combined with the fact that this particular event requires all attendees to pay admission to get in....whether you are dancing or not is why I may not be attending this event, but everyone who plans to dance is welcome to still go.
    Another factor to consider is the forecast for this evening (possibly as early as 5 pm) is calling for a chance of severe weather and according to one weather report: "A LINE OF SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS WILL MOVE THROUGH THE AREA FROM NORTHWEST TO SOUTHEAST BETWEEN 5 PM AND 1 AM.SOME OF THE STORMS COULD BE STRONG TO SEVERE WITH DAMAGING WINDS AND DANGEROUS LIGHTNING... PARTICULARLY WEST OF US 131 INCLUDING MUSKEGON... HOLLAND AND SOUTH HAVEN."

      There is a chance this weather may stay West of the event, but I felt it important to advise all members of the possibility of severe weather. I have inquired from the organizer of the Grand Rapids Original Swing Society if there will be an alternative location, should the weather forecast come true and was advised they will make that determination as it get's closer to the event time. This organizer has connections with a weather service representative and will be monitoring the weather as it gets closer to the event time. I will update on my event page, should any change in event location take place and/or you can monitor the Grand Rapids Original Swing Society's facebook page for any updates at: https://www.facebook­....­
      Hope your day is going well.

    Hello everyone,
    I wanted to update you regarding a couple of factors for tonight's Swing Dance event. I am still injured and can't dance and will be having physical therapy this afternoon (where I typically hurt more afterwards).
