Vale John Ragg

John & Yvonne

It is with great sadness that we heard that John Ragg passed away last Saturday 15 October 2016.  John had been battling his cancer since 2014; many of our dancers were unaware of this.  He was always cheerful and happy to talk to fellow square dancers.   John and his wife Yvonne graduated as Wild Frontier mainstream dancers in 2014 both recognized as staunch supporters of our club.

John & Ben

I know John completed one important item on his bucket list a motorcycle trip to Darwin to see his son Ben.  (see ).

We extend sincere condolences to Yvonne and her family.

Its all happening, happening, happening!


Wow, have we got a lot of upcoming events!

You had better make yourselves a cuppa, put your feet up and read all about it in What’s Happening?

For starters, there’s a picnic and dance in Mannum on Sun 9th October, then, on Friday 14th October it’s Wild Frontiers Pizzas and AGM night, then Kanella have their 41st birthday dance on Sat 22nd October, followed by Wild Frontier and Kannella Squares Christmas dinner on Tues 15 November at the Old Mill Hahndorf.  If that’s not enough to wet your appetite take a look at the details we’ve posted about next years weekend away in Wallaroo on 25th – 26th March 2017.

AND FINALLY if that’s not enough for you, on your way back from Wallaroo, drop into Kadina and have a dance with the Promenaders on Monday 27th March.

As well as a cuppa you had better take your phone with you so you can book the weekend away – go on now go to the What’s Happening? page (far right on the top bar of the front page above the covered wagons).

Vale Pamela Thompson

Pamela was introduced to square dancing in 1990, 26 years ago, at a South Australian Square Dance Society learner’s night at the Estonian Hall, Jeffcott Street, North Adelaide, where Jeff Seidel was one of the callers. Later she also took up Round Dancing.

For 14 years she partnered Frank Pakenham in both square and round dancing until Frank died suddenly in 2013. She then partnered Robert Scott until her death on 15 August 2016.

She very much enjoyed the challenge of Advanced dancing and complex Plus dancing .  She was a very competent dancer and danced at Kannella Squares Square dance club regularly. Pam also danced regularly at Wild Frontier’s mainstream club, helping new beginners through their passes. As a club member she joined us on many club ventures such as weekends away, party nights, midyear and Christmas dinners, a keen participant  in many other club functions.

Pam continued dancing up until a week before she died, making the most of the limited time she had left. For a lady in her ninth decade she was amazingly fit and energetic, with tremendous stamina that allowed her to dance six days a week and all day at special events. If there was a square or round dance on in Adelaide you could be sure to find Pam there. In recent years she danced at Wild Frontier, Kannella Squares and Adelaide Outlaws.

Pamela was looking forward to one last chat with you, with her daughter Nola she had planned a celebration dance where she could say goodbye to all her many friends but unfortunately circumstances determined otherwise , sadly she passed away the morning of the dance.

Pam was loved by all, an inspiration to everyone she met, she will be sorely missed, square dancers have lost a dedicated friend.


Jan Woodget’s letter to SASDS

To the Round Up Editor,

I am writing to express my disappointment at the poor representation of the SASDS executive at Jeff Seidels’ recent “50 Years of Calling” celebration. I also note that the President failed to offer congratulations in her June Issue of the Round Ups “Presidents Pen”.

The Executive committee are elected by the dancers to represent them. Jeff’s contribution to square dancing has over the years has been immense and I feel some representation should have taken place to mark this momentous occasion.

Yours sincerely,

Jan Woodget

Life member SASDS

Placed on this website at the request of Jan and Wild Frontier’s committee.  If SASDS are giving Jeff the cold shoulder that’s unforgivable and immature. – Ed
