The July Eastside Dance will be a Nostalgia Evening for long-time NACDS dancers; as Pat and Bill McClain travel from Atlanta to call and play. The McClains used to be the Huntsville dance group's house band and caller and made things happen. They owned and operated the Fret Shop before they moved to Atlanta a couple of years ago. Come and dance...this promises to be a great evening!

T-SHIRTS will be here soon, priced at $10.00. See Bryan Walls!

LOST & FOUND: See Fred if you've lost something (or Harry Delugach, if it was an Eastside event).

SADDLEROCK ! People glow when they talk about this wonderful dance weekend, which the Birmingham Country Dance Society holds each year in Mentone. Tickets have been hard to come by in the past. This year it will happen on Aug. 19-21, and features Ralph Blizard and the New Southern Ramblers. From the BCDS group:

"New Registration Procedure: In order to be a bit more equitable in deciding who gets into our dance weekend, we are this year instituting a Grateful-Dead-type registration plan. The fliers will (supposedly) go out on June 7, but you will not be allowed to send them in before July 7. That will give everyone a chance to receive fliers before anyone can send them back in. Registrations postmarked before July 7 or sent by any special type of mail other than First Class ($.32 stamp) will not be considered. There will be a limit of four persons per registration form (unless you genuinely are registering a lot of your own children). If you received a flier last year, you are in the data base and will get one again this year. But if you've never gotten one, send, in timely fashion, a postcard to BCDS, 2169 Shadybrook Lane, Birmingham, AL 35226."

Please bring a FAN when you come to the Eastside dances, to help keep us cool this summer. Also, Harry could use help with organizing equipment set-up and take-down at Eastside dances. Call Harry at 772-0820.

Let Fred or Harry know how you like the bands and callers, so they can please you with future bookings!
