Wild Frontier at Berri 2015

Once again the Wild Frontier weekend away was held at Berri in the Riverland. The weather was lovely and mild – warm days and cool nights, just perfect for square dancing.

Wild Frontier’s 42nd Birthday Dance

Full House 1

Click on the photos to enlarge, click again for even bigger

Wild Frontier held its 42nd Birthday dance on Saturday 21st February in our Chapel Street hall. It was bloody hot, bloody crowded and a bloody good show, there were hippies everywhere, George even broke out his old safari suit, amazing it still fitted. I would not even dream of trying to wear my old flared pants (if I had still got them) my waist is now at least 20% larger

Group 2

A Safari Suit (and it still fits!!!!!!)

I went purely to take some photos, unfortunately I am still not dancing (knee remains a bit wonky). The temperature was around 33 C at 8.00 PM when we headed out (after a bracing 39.5 C mid afternoon). We headed for home early and the temperature was still 28 C at 10.00 PM.

Full House 3

We had a good turnout

Jeff was amazed so many dancers had turned up after such a day. I counted 115 to 120 dancers. Many dancers chose to sit in the entrance lobby because our hall was packed out. Our small dance floor was always crowded.

A full house in the entrance lobby

Foyer 1

No room for our dogs to lie down!

At the beginning of the night, when everyone was enthusiastic, they actually managed to squeeze 10 squares onto the floor (this could be a record). I counted eight up when I was there, usually we get 6 and consider that to be the right number of squares. Needless to say, the air-conditioning struggled to keep up, mind you I hate to think what conditions would have been like without it.

General Roundup

Helen & Barry “take em away”

Full House 2

The certainly filled our dance floor!

The 4 callers did a great job, Graham, Ian, Les and Jeff put on a good show with some great calling. Supper looked to be heavy.   Lots of lips to the hips stuff (I left before supper time so I would not get tempted).

Jeff & Graham

Two of SA’s most respected square dance personalities
(Graham and Jeff are also in the group)

Many dancers went in “theme” costumes, there were a lot of hippies and ban the bomb signs. What the other “out of theme” dancers did not realize is that wearing their usual “traditional” square dance clobber is actually 1970’s square dance attire. Yes, we live in a time warp. Dresses were raised to current levels in the 1970’s to attract “younger more modern dancers” in an attempt to increase numbers and revive the declining square dance movement. Club members in the 70’s reflected that only 20 years earlier, that some square dances in the USA attracted tens of thousands, I believe the first dance at the Centennial Hall in the Wayville showgrounds in the 1950’s had 5000 dancers turn up, they could not fit them all in.

Peace

I think they had some funny stuff in their peace pipe

I had a problem with focussing my camera which was not apparent when looking at its small screen, as can be seen in the group photo, so that’s as sharp as I can make it, mind you trying to look 45 years young is a bit difficult so perhaps blurred is best. Never mind I think I got most of you in other photos.

Blurred

Blurred is probably best!

Another successful birthday bash, another great night, well done Wild Frontier, well done our dedicated committee, lets do it again next year.
