I have been asked to announce that there will be a "Mini Estate Sale" on Friday and Saturday September 14 and 15 from 10:00am to 3:00pm. This will include square dance clothes of the late Charlene Berryman. There will also be many other things for sale. This will be indoors.
The address is 14596 US-90 ALT Kingsbury, TX 78638 This is the highway between Seguin and Gonzales. I was told it is 4 miles from Belmont going west towards Seguin, If you have any questions please call Ruby Buesing. 830-857-6633
I apologize to the clubs I unintentionally left off the “Beginner Square Dance Lessons” list. The corrected and final version of the list is attached. You will notice that some San Antonio clubs have been listed along with those in ASRDA. I believe it is better just to get people dancing rather than worry about where they take lessons. The more all the clubs work together, the better chance we have of recruiting new dancers. Also, maybe a potential dancer in Austin has friends in San Antonio who want to learn. Bingo – they send them the list.
The schedule and session rates are up for Shoot The Lone Star 2018 March 2nd-4th in Austin TX at the Austin Recreational Center, 1301 Shoal Creek Blvd, Austin, TX 78701. Please take a look and come join us for a fun weekend. We look forward to seeing you on the dance floor!
We received a call from Tony Oxendine that he will be unable to come to Texas to Call our Wednesday, February 22nd Buckles & Bows 14th Anniversary Dance. Due to the Short Notice, we have Cancelled the dance for that evening. He has to attend a funeral in Indiana and will not be making his Texas Swing to Houston & Austin.
Please inform all your club members about the cancellation.
We are planning to reschedule our Anniversary dance sometime in March. We will post details in ASRDA Site as soon as they have been worked out.
The Teen Scholarship Dance has been rescheduled for Nov 5 2016. See the details & flyer attached.
