    This should be nice with a good band. I hope to meet some ladies to dance with. I have only met 2 people out of the 49 that signed up, 1 guy and 1 gal.

      Get there by 7:30 for the basic lesson. Partners rotate during the lesson, so you'll meet ladies you can ask to dance when the Flat Cats start playing. See you there David!

    To Jeanne,
    Sorry to hear that you are in Emergency Room with a family member and missed this dance. The music was good, people were friendly and I danced with several nice ladies. I wish we had name tags, to help me remember the names.
