October has so many opportunities for fun: National Coffee Day and National Vegetarian Day on the 1st, Columbus Day on the 10th, National Nut Day on the 22nd, United Nations Day on the 24th, and of course, Callers Cavalcade on the 28th, followed by Round-Up Oktoberfest on the 29th. So get ready for an exciting full month of activities!
Wow! What a wonderful and informative time we had at GRaM University II. The GRaM Committee presented a great program and we want to thank all of you for your attendance. We appreciate all of those who turned out for this event and know that much information was given and well received. We also want to thank Chris and Carolyn Mills for their efforts chairing this committee.
The count down for Oktoberfest is just a few days away. Where: Grapevine Convention Center, 1209 South Main Street, Grapevine, Texas. What: Callers Cavalcade on Friday, October 28, and Round-Up on Saturday. It seems we just had the Round-Up kick-off dance. We have enjoyed many Round-Up visitation dances as we are getting ready for this big event. Thanks to the clubs that have or are hosting these special dances to promote Round-Up. Our Round-Up Chair, Ray and Vickie Spray, and their committee have planned a full day of fun activities for us. Don’t forget to visit the vendors. Please take a few minutes and go to http://ww.nortex.org and look at all the Round-Up pictures taken by Dennis and Elizabeth Ziebell and Charles and Anna Wolfe. Remember the Grapevine Convention Center will have lunch for us at a very reasonable cost, and you won’t lose your parking place if you eat at the center. Last year the lunch menu offered a good variety of choices and the wait was not too long. Don’t forget to sell Grand Prize tickets, as selling the tickets will help your club.
Please keep in mind that the NORTEX business meeting is scheduled on Sunday, November 6, at 2:00pm. It is so important to have the participation of club delegates because this is your organization to control. We also greatly appreciate those who have been willing to serve in NORTEX positions. We hope that there are others in our dance community who are willing to help in the future.
Thanks for sharing your club newsletters and keeping us informed about your activities. Thank you for your activity-building efforts like lessons, visitations, and fun-filled dances. It really helps when we all work together to support each other in lessons, with new dancers, and when visiting our member clubs. It really doesn’t seem like work at all because actually we get to “Dance, It’s Entertainment, it’s Fun!”
