From David Hillis
This Friday's our latest Fun Night, Cross Dress Waltz Party, at Live Oak, from 7:30-10:30. It's a modest $5, and we'd sure appreciate any snacks you could bring! As to costume, get creative -- wear something you've never worn before! Take a fling with a frock! Wear a beard or just get weird!
Next week is Thanksgiving, which means the Intermediate class won't be dancing that Thursday. However, there's no need to let all those extra calories go unchallenged: the Intermediates are invited to join the Beginner class on November 20. The first half of the class will be Beginner teaches, followed by the Intermediate teaches. Marija's off at Revels rehearsals, so Marian and I will be doing the whole thing.
Save the date! BFD's biggest production of the year, in confederation with the Federation, is the Festival Of The Oaks. This year it will be Sunday, February 10. Attached as both a PDF and a Word Doc is the flyer for the event -- print it off, pass it around! The details are at the bottom of this email as well.
Don't tell anybody I told ya, but . . .
