Our local lad returns

BILLY CURTIS AT HIS BEST

Billy is about as local as it gets for us, living as he does in Swindon. So many of our Acts come from Counties dotted around the country, especially the North and have a great deal of travelling, so Billy is comparatively lucky on that  front.

 

He loves performing for us, as we are a very friendly welcoming Club, and we respond with enthusiasm to a good performer. He said it was very well run  with a brilliant atmosphere. We can’t get much better praise than that.

 

Needless to say, Billy had the floor full throughout his 2 sets. He even played a song to which we danced “You’re So Naughty” years ago. A stretch for the old brain cells, but it went down really well, and Karl might well revive it.

 

 

I was not able to attend the Social this month, as I had a dance weekend down in Torquay. It’s always so disappointing when events clash, especially when I miss someone as good as Billy, but when I received the pictures, I was thrilled to see how the return of some people who haven’t attended recently.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Billy had his own personal tea lady in the form of Silvie, who kept him plied with this beverage throughout the evening. So his secret is out (the tea, not Silvie!!)

RAFFLE

This was up to its usual standard, with Doreen introducing a few Christmasy gifts. We would again like to thank the kind people who donate prizes, and especially Kevin who never fails to bring pots of beautiful chrysanthemums.

 

BAND HUNT                                                                                                                     

The Committee are on the look out for new bands suitable for our venue. If anyone knows of a band they feel would fit the bill, please let one of the team know, and we will endeavour to go and hear them, with a view to booking them.

 

FLOOR ETIQUETTE

You will find a copy of “Floor Etiquette” on your table, if you are not sure of how it works when there are partner and line dancers on the floor together.

REQUEST SHEETS 

We are very keen that those who attend fill in request sheets, so that we know we are going in the right direction – hopefully you saw the list of dances on your table as a reminder. If Alan doesn’t have the music on the night, he will make sure he has it by the next Social, and if there is something you later think of, please don’t be afraid to let us know – there are contact details on the “Contact location and links” page.

 

CROSS COUNTRY MAGAZINE

Twelve copies were brought in for sale at the November Social, and more will be brought in next time. Bill will put an article in for County Line.

Bottle and bag Competition

HOW FAR HAVE YOURS GONE?

Between now and Christmas we are holding a County Line bottle and bag competition. Any photos will be displayed monthly, and in December each one will be given a number and put in a draw for a mystery prize. There will also be a prize for the one that has travelled the furthest distance. At the moment we have Austria and Spain.
