The Alliance for Round, Traditional, and Square Dance (ARTS-Dance) has approved a new log, slogan, and slogo. Many square dance organizations and club are using the new image to promote square dancing. We encourage all dancers to join in the support of this new image.
We are glad you are visiting our site. We would like you to join us at one of our dances. We dance the CALLERLAB Plus and Advanced programs. Please take a look at our schedule for a dance for you.
We are home from our 2015 RV trip. We stopped in Springfiled, MO for the 2015 CALLERLAB Convention. After the convention we spent some time in Branson, MO for some "show time." NOTE- We highly recommend you STAY CLEAR OF THE "TIMESHARE" FOLKS! We visited Jerry's Son and our granddaughter in Texas and Jerry's brother in New Mexico. We even had some SNOW in Santa Fe, NM. No worries though - it was gone by noon. Colorado Springs is beautiful and the weather is great - - high's in the 70's and lows in the low to mid 40's. AND low humidity - - VERY NICE! We spent time near Denver, then on to Wyoming (and more snow in Cheyenne). We visited Jerry's sister and here husband in Eastern Wyoming, then to Central Nebraska for a visit with Jerry's brother and his wife. We moved Illinois for a visit with Dels' brother and his wife. Our original plans included a visit Upper Michigan. However, for various reason, we decided to bypass Michigan this year. Next year the NSDC is in Des Moines, IA. We will plan our trip to Upper Michigan as part of that trip.
This year we traveled nearly 6,000 miles. We had the coldest and wetest weather of all our previous trips. We were VERY thankful for the lower gas prices this year. Last year we paid well ove $3.75/gallon and this year we paid a low of $2.09 and a high of $2.80. We spent a LOT less than we would have at last year's prices.
We will be posting a summary report of our 2015 RV trip.
