This Saturday: Paul Collins with "Sofa Cats"
Paul Collins from Chicago will be calling at our first-Saturday
dance on November 7th. The music will be provided by one of
our favorite bands, the Sofa Cats from all over North Alabama. See
November 21st: Janet Shepard and "Hyde Nor Hare"
Atlanta's Janet Shepard will do the calling once again for this
month's pre-Thanksgiving dance. Our own Hyde Nor Hare will set your
feet a-tappin'! Come and work up an appetite for turkey.
Our Halloween "Blue Moon" dance last weekend was a howling
success. The music, calling and refreshments were all great. There
were very imaginative costumes that ranged from the intriguing,
through the horrifying, all the way over to the outrageous. Speaking
of which, Bryan reports that three of our Huntsville dancers won
costume prizes at the Music City Masquerade last month: Kimberly
Hart, Marcy Robinson and Fred Kolchin. Congratulations! See pictures
Public radio station WLRH (89.3 FM) helps us publicize our dances each month. Several NACDS members took the opportunity to help the station during its "Fall Friend-Raiser" by answering the phones. Among those participating this year were: Natasha Kunin, Daniel Schenker, Marcy Robinson, Jill Gardner, and Bryan Walls. Well done!
