Some Sweetheart Special

Dancing to the world's largest Leprachaun, we joined a rather small crowd at Muir on March 10.  Jim Osborne kept things rolling as about a dozen squares enjoyed his fun calling for the evening.  Round dancers enjoyed the cueing of Jim Chico.  The decorations were timely, the food was plentiful and the dancers had a lot of fun.  Our own Tom Kenfield had the luck of the Irish and won the biggest split the pot share of the evening.  In addition to the Kenfields, the Campbells, Wegeners and the Gaddys were club members on hand for the dancing.
Karen & Dennis Campbell

On February 9, the Wegeners, Gaddys and Campbells joined at least 120 other couples (yes, couples - that's more than 30 squares!) to dance to the calling of Eric Henerlau and the cueing of Jim Chico.  There were couples from Fremont, Gilroy, Santa Cruz and Monterey, and from up the peninsula.  We were delighted to see Lee and Lois White enjoy the superb hoedown.  Eric is a delightful caller, personable and a good choreographer.  His complicated moves flowed smoothly from one into the next.  Jim, besides doing his great job on the rounds, harmonized with Eric on some of the singing calls.  Despite the large turnout, there was plenty of food.  There were lots of raffle prizes and a 'photo corner' where digital photos of sweethearts were offered.  Richard and I won a raffle prize, a box of Hershey's kisses, just right for a sweet heart of a dance.
