    All BFDers,

    It is time to gather together to consider new trial

    dances for the 2019-2020 dance year & it’s time

    to celebrate Halloween. Let’s combine both

    events into one gala occasion again this year.

    All levels of dancers are welcome to attend this event, where a number of

    potential trial dances will be demonstrated and five of them will be chosen

    by your votes. This is your opportunity to have a voice in the selection of

    this year's new trial dances. The presentations will start at 7:30 p.m. on

    Friday, October 25th. You have to be on time to vote. To be fair to all

    dances presented, you have to see them all to vote. After voting, we will

    have a Halloween Request Night Extraordinaire! Please come and make

    your voice heard, and do it in your Halloween attire if you like! Bring

    snacks. The event is free for members.

    If you have a dance that you would like to present for consideration, please

    send the following information to Ruthie Gasser by Monday October 21st:

    • Name of dance
    • Country of origin
    • Type of dance (line, couple, set, mixer, etc.)
    • Who taught you the dance
    • Where was it taught? (i.e., Stockton, Mendocino, N/S, etc.)
    • Who will help you demonstrate the dance.

    You may use the form available here if you like, or just send an email. And

    remember to bring the music for your dances on October 25th.

    [Note: According to BFD rules, the dances must have been introduced at a workshop or camp within

    the last year.]

    Contact Ruthie Gasser with any questions. It should be a fun & spooky
