BFD: 10/1 This Week's Dances + Member Selection Night



David Hillis

Attachments8:14 PM (3 hours ago)


Hello dancers,

Our Afternoon classes are back -- come on down!


Next Sunday is our monthly Members Meeting:

Sunday, October 7:   At the home of Emily and Arnie Stoper

6439 Regent Street, Oakland

6:30 Potluck (please RSVP 655-9332)

7:30 Meeting


That same day (October 7), and no doubt a little more fun, is Mel Mann's 90th Birthday Party, at Live Oak, from noon to 4:30.  Esther would like an RSVP if you're coming, so rattle her cage at 

Even better, email her and ask how you can help!


Coming up on October 20 is the Federation's Officers Ball in Pleasanton.  Marija will be one of the institute teachers, and she and Marian are the Dinner Committee!  If you want dinner (with live music), you have to register by October 12.  All the info is at




The biggest date on BFD's calendar this month is the Member Selection Night/Halloween Party on Friday, October 26.  This is the night you get to pick up to five new Trial Dances for this year.  But to be able to vote, you have to see all the demonstrated dances, so arrive before 7:30!

Attached are a flyer with all the details, and a form to fill out if you will be presenting a dance for consideration.

No forms are required for you to wear a Halloween costume, so do!  Ed would really appreciate it.
