Wild Frontier’s Graduation Night

Friday 31st August 2015 was a special celebration night for our club, we were joined by 13 new dancers, it was graduation night.

Class of 2014

Our Class of 2014 (plus Anne, Jeff and April)

This year’s beginners class was a great success with 14 new dancers achieving mainstream level: Jennifer Ayling, Debbie Boon, Lois & Kevin Brimblecombe, Jenny Dinning, Neville Elsworthy, Linda Johnson, Sharon & Craig Mackenzie, Lois Otterspoor, Barbara & Stan Perkes, David Shores, and Marlene Small, unfortunately one graduate was unable to attend.

To mark the occasion, after some encouragement, many attendees enjoyed a glass of wine and finger food in the entry foyer. They did a great demolition job, a practice run for the ensuing supper table.

Nibbles in the Foyer -(some people did not need much encouragement)

I noticed when dancing the first tip that one of the squares kept breaking down, and that the new graduates in that square were looking a bit confused; not a good start. However after that initial hiccup, the graduates appeared to be homogonously integrated amongst the other experienced dancers and, as witnessed by their smiling faces, they all danced very well. Homogonous, that’s another long word as is marmalade, it means evenly mixed, or spread, as you would with marmalade.

Dancers

Our new dancers soon mixed in wth the rest

Our class of 2014 had some moments, especially when angels Kevin and Lois attended making a total of three Lois’s and two Kevin’s in our class. So when for example Jeff said “Lois you should be facing the other way?”, the chorus would go up “which Lois?”.

They got there in the end

Because the president Heather Wheeler was unable to attend, Anne Tulloch represented the South Australian Square Dance Society (SASDS), unfortunately she had not been supplied with the traditional “graduate packs”. It would seem that others had overlooked the graduation date recorded in the SASDS meeting minutes.

In retrospect, the resulting situation was a bonus, because, Les Tulloch who accompanied Anne, did some excellent calling, and, as I said to the new graduates, “now you will have to come back again to receive your free SASDS gift”.

Les & Jeff

A bonus! Les did some great calling

When we all stopped dancing for supper we were treated to a great spread, embellished with some additional goodies, chicken and chocolate mud cake included. There was a lot of “from the lips to the hips” food. So much food in fact that we could not eat it all (another bonus because the remainder went off to the clubs “come and try” dance to be held the following night in the Campbelltown Councils new function centre (sponsored by the Campbelltown Council).

Great Supper

Everyone enjoyed a great supper spread

The graduation dance was a resounding success with some great calling from Les, Peter and Jeff, it was good to expose our new dancers to different callers and it was a pleasure to see them smiling and having a good time.

Well done Wild Frontier- a big thankyou to everyone involved.

Hot Soup Night

On Friday 24th July, it was a very cold night; cold outside but nice and cosy in our hall. Scoot Back Squares paid an inter club visit with their caller Ian to dance and sample some hot soup.

Hot Soup c

We had hot soup on the stove…………

Full House c

…….. and a full dance floor

It was great to chat with our visitors from who turned out in force to bolster our numbers. They were especially brave to travel all that way on such a cold night.

The dance floor was nice and full all night with 6 or 7 squares up whilst many sat out exercising their jaws.

Why are we waiting c

Sometimes we had to wait because Jeff was exercising his jaw

Dancers c

But……. it was worth the wait, some good calling by Jeff, Peter…….

Ian & Dancers c

…… and Ian

Also, thank you Ian for making up the numbers at the beginning of the plus learners class held prior to the square dance proper.

During the evening, there was a lot of activity in the kitchen, culminating in a culinary event they should be proud of.Thank you ladies for the nice hot soup, some of us blokes should have made some so we could share the glory.

After soup and more dancing it was time for a cuppa.

Dont bang my head c

A couple of head bangers with their dodgers

We all enjoyed some great calling from Jeff, Peter and Ian

A great night, well received by all, let’s repeat it next year.
