The Votes Are In

ECR held its annual election of the Board on Wednesday Feb. 28. Fifty-three ballots were returned (out of 72) and the results were unanimous. Thanks to all who voted, and congratulations to our returning ECR Board members Annette, Lynn, and Eric.

A February Double Header

ECR held back-to-back dances on Friday and Saturday, February 23 and 24. First up was our monthly no-experience-required Fun Night with Kurt Gollhardt calling squares, Sicilian Circles, and a Quadrille! The next evening was our quarterly theme dance, the Black & White Ball featuring Jet Roberts calling Plus, A2 and a couple of SSD-50 (class-level) tips. Something for everyone!

We'll be holding future Fun Nights on the third Friday of each month (March 6, April 20) featuring a variety of callers and dance styles to keep things fresh and interesting. Our next quarterly dance is April 28 with Scot and Erin Byars.

Real dancing.
Real people.
Real fun.

EL CAMINO REELERS is a modern Western Square Dance club, formed by lesbians and gay men in order to meet people, have fun, and learn to square dance. We dance to live callers using the Callerlab Mainstream, Plus, Advanced, and C1 programs.

LEARN TO SQUARE DANCE! It's a great way to meet active, open-minded, intelligent, and sometimes very silly people. We would be glad to welcome you to our club. Send a note to information@reelers.org and let us know you're interested.
