  • Trip to Elverson

    February 6th, 2006

    The folkdance trip to the Elverson contra went well. We had thirteen people and did succeed in getting a van. The Elverson contra had more young people than the Glenside one, but fewer experienced dancers. Bringing 13 college students also shifted the age distribution.

    There should be more contra in the future, but I'm not all that sure how often they can happen without people getting overcontrad and stopping attending. At the very least we should go to the next Elverson one we can, which is the first of April. But I would like it if we could go to one sooner.

    Dancing, and reading about midwestern squares with tractors made us curious about the possibility of using an SBC concept grant to host a vehicular Square dance at Swat. The draft proposal is here.
