      THINGS TO DO IN OUR SQUARE DANCE COUNCIL THIS WEEK
     
    THIS WEEK in the MAPSDC
    Sunday October 7

    The 2018-19 dance season is now off to a good start with all clubs having held their first dance of the season.  This leads me to remind all of you to dance every chance you get.  The more banners your club has  hanging in your hall for your dances means you will very likely have a good turnout at your next dance.  So be sure when you are out visiting  don’t forget to include what club you belong to when you sign in.

    It is once again time for you club to begin the insurance enrollment process.  Be sure you have renewed your membership with you club so they can add you to the enrollment.  If you don’t belong to a club, think about joining one.  All clubs in our council are insured by the United Square Dancers of America, 100% of the members of each club must be enrolled in order for the club to be insuured. 
     
    Ask you club leadership what you need to do in order to get the council bulletin.  It is renewal time and several clubs include the 10.00 subscsription in their membersip.
     
    The council will be electing new officers in November.  We are looking for some new blood in the open seats.  Those open seats are (2) Jr Representatives to the CSSDA, Secretary, and Vice President. The council only meets 4 times a year, usually on the first Sunday of  February,  May, August and November.  We like try to include every club in the council on our council board if possible.  Those officers that are continuing on belong to Oregon Trail, Foot and Fiddle, and Square Dusters.   If you have any interest, please let me know asap. The only requirement is you must belong to a club in our council
     
    THIS WEEK  begins this Wednesday the 10th with Hix and Chix holding their dance in Longmont with Bill Heiny calling and Mitchell Thompson cuing.  The theme is Autumn Leaves. They are also starting a plus Class next week on 17th at 6:00 at the Senior Center.
     
     Friday the 12th you again have more than one choice.
    1. Berthoud Barn Owls will have Mike Olivieri calling the  all plus dance. Remember that Barn Owls is the best place to sharpen your plus skills, and the only place in our area that offers all plus dancing, all evening.
    2. Skirts and Shirts will also dance on Friday with Bill Callaway calling and Dave Smith cuing.  The dance begins at 7:15 and is held at JoAnne’s Place.  
     
    Saturday the 13th, Merry Mixers will dance with Debbie Steinkircner calling and David Smith cuing.  For this dance, you will be traveling to china. Oh, and by the way, Debbie and Ron are Co Chairman for the 2019 festival. In their honor,  how about we wear black and white and red and “Get Rhythm”.
