I haven't added to this Blether blog for 2 weeks. It is impossible, as always, to understand where that time has gone, but thank God that this busy time has been both enjoyable and productive, though obviously not productive from the blethering point of view. The last few dance classes have suffered, either from lack of numbers on Tuesdays, or from heat on Mondays ... but despite the challenges they've all been great fun and we're welcoming more people all the time. They are either new to dancing altogether, or returnees, so, despite many dancers returning back to the UK for the summer or having to miss their dancing 'fix' for other reasons we are managing to keep the sessions going and we are even considering continuing longer into the summer than usual - why not, as long at there are people willing to dance. Preparation is going on apace for the June Jamboree. Despite the current damp weather the forecast is for a warm evening, 26°C (78°F) fairly humid with a light NW breeze. If it does get chilly the Elea staff have been known to wrap people in blankets - that's service - but I don't think we'll be needing them this time. The menu is now available with the other information about the evening on the 'Future Events' page and the dance programme is undergoing it's final revision, I've analysed the previous programmes for the dances that were enjoyed the most, and also found one or two more that I think will fit the bill of either, familiar, or quick and easy to learn, and obviously enjoyable to do. Although there's still loads more preparation to do I'm really looking forward to it. If anyone wants to help the 'committee' with the decoration meet us at the Elea at 10 a.m. in the morning - otherwise don't forget to get, or at least book, your ticket from Irene Tel: 96 48 4500 before this Saturday (18th June), at the very latest, because that is the cut off date for letting the venue know our numbers. I hope to see you tonight, next week or there!
