The heat is on but it’s never too hot to dance. Many of our clubs are going casual for the summer so check out the Promenade for places you can dance and beat the heat.
July 9th was our Round-Up Kickoff Dance for 2017 Round-Up, “Rock Around the Clock”. Joe and Pat Cadenhead are doing a great job as General Chair. The callers were Vernon Jones and Toby Thomason. The cuers were Christine and Theron Hixson and Karen and Ed Gloodt. When you have an opportunity be sure and thank these folks for a great time. It was a fun July dance, even if we were “sweatin’ to the oldies”.
Don’t forget you can pre-register for Round-Up by going to www.nortex.org and click on Round-Up 2017. This saves you money compared to the ‘at the door’ price and makes for a quick and easy entrance into the event. Also, there are savings by registering for Callers Cavalcade at the same time. Remember to reserve your hotel room at Comfort Inn in Grapevine by calling 817-239-9300 and tell them you are with the NORTEX Square Dance Group so that you can get the discounted rate. Rooms are going fast. Club Presidents be sure and get your Round-Up Grand Prize tickets to sell. This is a great way to bring money into your club. You can get them from your Area VP or at the upcoming NORTEX Quarterly Business Meeting on August 20th at Swingtime Center.
We have a NORTEX Quarterly Business Meeting scheduled for Sunday, August 20, at 2:00pm. Please mark your calendar. Club Presidents and two Delegates from each club are the ones who control the direction of our Association. Be sure to let your Area VP know if you have changes to your President or Delegates.
We want to thank all the Elected and Appointed Officers, Round-Up Committee Chairs, our other Committee Chairs and members for all the hard work they do. It is truly an honor and a privilege to serve you, the dancers and clubs of NORTEX. We are looking forward to seeing you as we visit your clubs and special dances and continue to “Live to Dance and Dance to Live”.
