Spooky Things Were Happening At Brigalow Avenue
Yes it was our 1st Friday dance night in 2012, it was Friday January the 13th, this time held at our Brigalow Avenue hall, because they are repairing our usual venue at Chapel Street.
It was Friday the 13th at square dance.
A black cat created a fuss.
I’m not superstitious, but this might,
explain why I’m failing at plus.
By chance I walked under a ladder
Jeff Seidel had placed by the wall.
At home my umbrella popped open,
and that’s why I tripped up in the hall.
The salt spilled this morning at breakfast.
While walking I stepped on a crack.
I took off my shoes on the table,
It looks like my future is black.
This evening I busted a mirror
which means that the next seven years
are due to be filled with misfortune,
catastrophes, mishaps and tears.
With all the bad luck I’m confronting,
it seems that I’m probably cursed.
If I don’t get the hang of this dancing,
next Tuesday will likely be worse.

The committee had done a great job decorating the venue and many attended wearing costumes to match the theme, there was a virtual sea of black interspersed with some red.

We started off with the usual hour of plus, which revealed many of us “casual plus dancers” had forgotten the calls. After that we settled down to some good Mainstream calling from Jeff, with a couple of variations which had us all confused for a while.

Colin finally made it down to Brigalow, he broke down on the freeway whilst trying to get to our New Years Eve Dance, so we all wished him a belated Happy 94th Birthday (usually celebrated on 31st Dec).
As is usual this time of year, our numbers were a bit down; we had 4 sets up all night with the usual additional set sitting out “flapping their gums”. Supper was great and everyone seemed to enjoy the event, and the venue.
Brigalow is a very nice venue. If you have never been there before, come along next Friday 20th and try it out !
