    THIS WEEK in the MAPSDC 
     
    Sunday April 15, 2018
     
     
    So, it has been two weeks now, I hope you all have been taking advantage of all the fine dancing in our area.  We are in Pahrump NV to relax in the warmth of  Death Valley and it sounds as if we have missed a couple of nasty, cold, snowy and windy days at home.  We have been told there is a dance club here in Pahrump on Wednesdays so we just might get some dancing in this week.
    First on your list is tonight, this is your reminder that Dave Guille is Back in town and he and Gail will be at Dancing Acres in Cheyenne to greet you tonight. The rounds with Steve Kline will begin at 6:30.
    On Tuesday the 17th the Hashtag Stars will gather at Mountain Range Shadows to practice for their performance at the state festival in June.  If you want to know what it is all about come on out and give us a look.  We will likely be recruiting sometime in the fall and would love to have more of our dancing friends give it a try.  5:30 at the Pizza Ranch in Loveland for dinner, 7:00 dance practice.
    Rick Gittleman will be in town on Friday the 20th when he teams up with Roger at Square Dusters. Barb Haines will cue the dance and the theme is “Black is good for all seasons”. Not sure what that means but I think it might mean that the festival promo team may be in town to help you register for the festival......have you done that yet?
    On Saturday the 21st the Foot and Fiddlers will welcome another newcomer to our area.  Rod Krehbiel of Kansas will join Leroy Shade on stage to entertain us Hobo style, as we ride the rails!
    Quadra Dangle also dances on Saturday with dinner at 6:00 and dancing at 7:00 to Bill Heiney.
    The week will finish up on Sunday with Oregon Trails Dancers gathering in Kimball at 3:30 with Lucky Kochenower doing the rounds followed by Bill Henke doing the squares.
    A couple of reminders.....The deadline for the summer bulletin is today.  Please get your club information to Julie Edwards This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.,  Speaking of Julie, she has been publishing our fabulous bulletin quarterly for many years, both the printed version and the online version.  She has been asking for at least a year to have someone replace her. She will train, mentor and help in any way a new editor for at least 2 future issues.  Please contact her if you can help out, or maybe team up with another dancer to make the quarterly project easier.  You don’t have to write any of the articles, just create the bookelet from the submissions that are sent to you. If you have ever volunteered for a office or a committee and stayed with that job for nearly 10 years, you know how hard it is to find a replacement.  I hope for Julie’s sake you can help.
     
    It is going to be a full week for Ya’ll ......I hope it is Magical!
    Linda
