The heat is on and many of our clubs are going casual for the summer, so check out the Promenade for places you can dance and beat the heat.
June 24 was our official Round-Up Kick Off Dance at Swingtime, starting the excitement leading to the big event on October 20. General Chairman Sheila Milliron and Bobby Clark and their committee are doing a fantastic job. Debbie Anderson is busy scheduling the Round-Up committee visitations to club pre-Round-Up dances. We want to thank all the clubs hosting these dances and helping to build the excitement of the Round-Up season. Just a reminder for clubs who choose to donate a door prize for Round-Up, please have it ready for the Round-Up committee as they visit your club. If you want to see the list of pre-Round-Up dances go to the NORTEX website at www.nortex.org and click on Round-Up 2018. Come and join us. You can also go to the same place on the website and register for Round-Up online or print off a mail in registration. You can also buy tickets at pre-Round-Up dances. Don’t forget to make reservations at the Grapevine Comfort Inn by calling (817)329-9300 and tell them that you are with NORTEX. You should get the $89.00 rate for each night. Ask for an email confirmation.
We want to take this opportunity to congratulate our NORTEX Dancers of the Year, Charles & Anna Wolfe and George & Cheryl Wilson, along with the NORTEX Club of the Year, Triangle Squares.
Our next Quarterly Business Meeting will be Sunday, August 19 at 2:00pm. Please mark you calendar. 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”.
