2018 Canadian Square and Round Dance Convention
New Dancers at the Convention
Are you a new, or first-year dancer?
Have you thought about going to the National Convention in London, Ontario next July?
Are you concerned that maybe you are not ready to dance on the world stage?
Will there be a place for new or first-year dancers to dance at the convention?
Do we have to wear square dance outfits?
Where do we stay?
So many questions, and yet all very good questions that all need to be answered.
Don, Doug and Natalie Sprosty are coming to call the “Valricksterly Hallingmas” – a celebration of holidays. They come all the way from Iowa to call a dance for Brecksville Squares.
Bring your square dance friends!

Don’t forget it is not too late to register for the OHIO DANCE CONVENTION. I will include the registration form as an attachment. We are exactly a month away from dancing in Columbus hopefully warm weather will be upon us. If you would prefer to wait to register, registration is available at the door also. Rooms are available at the Crowne Plaza as of April 5. I had some trouble when booking rooms, they stated sold out and that is NOT the case, just remember to designate you are part of the dance convention.
Hoping for spring and looking forward to a fun weekend in May!
Sincerely, Rachel Harnar
Hello everyone. Just a quick note to tell you that President Chickie found out they are having Basket Auction at the State Convention in May. This does not give us much time to get one created if we waited until the April meeting to announce. So, I am sending this to all members to spread the word to your club and check with your club to see if they will make a basket for State Convention. You can choose what type of basket you want to make. This is not mandatory but we sure would like to have the clubs in our Federation participate. President Chickie and I are doing one for the Federation. Please talk to your respective clubs about making a basket and if you are not going to the convention we will make arrangements to get them there. But we hope you will also make plans to be at the convention.
Any questions give Chickie a call but in the past, we have had your support in making baskets and they were great. This is a wonderful money maker for the convention.
Thank you to all that supported this event over the past several years and those who had planned to join us for the first time this year. Refunds will be issued within the next ten days to those that sent in their registration.
FYI – With Summerfest 18 canceled, we will hold our regular Friday night dance at the American Legion on July 6 with Jack Pladdys and our wonderful staff. year.
Hugs & Handshakes, Peggy & Barry Carney
