Sue - Dont know if this will effect your group, but I thought I would pass this along.  It seems Fairfax County is proposing to limit the size of the dance floor in restaurants.  Carole Gathright, NVa Shag Club Member
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Importance: High

 Committee,   We are asking that as many Club members as possible appear at the Fairfax County Planning Commission meeting on Thursday, March 1 at 8:15 to show our faces as responsible, adult social dancers, to oppose pending local legislation which would limit the size of dance floors in restaurants.  This could have a direct impact on our ability to dance in Fairfax County.  According to a recent news article:

 “County zoning staff have proposed a requirement that would limit the maximum size of the dance floor at a restaurant to 150 square feet. Otherwise, the business must apply for a dance hall permit, which carries an application fee of $16,375.”

With thanks to Gary, here are links to a couple of news articles concerning the proposal:  http://www.fairfaxtimes.com/article/20120224/NEWS/703029999/1117/fairfax-dance-enthusiasts-resist-county-crackdown&template=fairfaxTimes and http://www.wtop.com/?nid=149&sid=2762592

 The Fairfax Planning Commission will meet on Thursday at 8:15 p.m. in the Ground Floor Auditorium at Fairfax County Government Center, 12000 Government Center Pkwy, Fairfax, VA  22035.  Please consider wearing an NVSC logo shirt to the meeting. 

 We all know how hard it has been to find locations for our weekly dances in Northern Virginia, and we need to try to prevent County Government from making it harder still.
