April Showers Bring A Different Dance Venue!

April 17, 2014

This Saturday, April 19, there will be a potluck and contra dance. The dance conflicts with Easter events at the normal location, so we will be dancing at the Boys and Girls Club, at the usual time. The potluck is in a brand-new place! See below for full information.

Caller – Rich Goss of Portland, a longtime and creative caller who’s also a musician in Hands4, Cascade Crossing, and the Portland Megaband.

Time – Teaching at 7:30 p.m., dancing at 8

Location – Boys and Girls Club, 1112 Northwest Circle Boulevard

$6 for CFS/EFS members and students, $7 non-members

Pre-dance potluck at 6 p.m.

Carpools to Eugene.

January 21, 2007

We usually meet at 7:00 at (or near) New Morning Bakery on 2nd Street in downtown Corvallis to carpool to the Eugene dance. (If you see someone standing around, don’t be shy, ask if they’re going to the Eugene dance.)

If there’s a pre-dance potluck, we’d need to leave at about 5:00. So, if you want to share a ride to the potluck, post your info here. (Thus, it’s possible to have two carpools: one to the potluck at 5:00, and another to the dance at 7:00.)
