Our many thanks to Ann & David Ouzts, Round-Up Chairman, and their committee who have worked many hours over the past months to plan such a wonderful weekend. Life’s Just a Dance 2014 Round-Up was a thrill for everyone involved. Also, we want to thank each dancer who supported this event. Round-Up is for each of you – the dancers of NORTEX. Thank you to NTCA for kicking off this weekend with the Callers Cavalcade. On Friday evening, many callers and cuers provided music and entertainment for our dancing pleasure. To the many dancers, clubs, callers and cuers who donate their time, talent and resources to make this annual NORTEX event an ultimate success, we thank you with all our heart.

The NORTEX Quarterly Business Meeting is scheduled for November 16, 2014 at Swingtime Center at 2:00pm. We hope to see all the club delegates in attendance and all NORTEX dancers are invited to come be a part of this meeting. You might even learn something interesting about your organization.

Where should you be on December 7, 2014? That would be the Richardson Civic Center for our Toys for Tots Dance! NORTEX, NTCA and your GRaM Committee are hosting a fun-filled afternoon. We will be joined by Chip Waggoner of FOX 4 as our guest host. The day will include a Formula 51 Dance and a full evening program. Our club wreath silent auction winning club will be awarded cash equivalent of twelve ¼ page Promenade ads. This is a great opportunity to give to our community needy children at Christmas. This year we will have a change in that we can accept your credit card. Get ready to charge! Please bring your students and new dancers and help them feel a part of our dance family. The 200 students in our District will be filling our halls and make them feel at home by inviting them in your square.

We are approaching the holiday season, so please take a moment to remember the men and women of our armed forces who will not be able to spend the holidays with their families. Take time to thank a Veteran and their family for their service on Veteran’s Day, November 11th or any other day. We wish you a safe and happy Thanksgiving with your family! Dance in a square – make a circle of friends.
