Dance in North Florida - Announcements

Hello Dancers!!

Hope this email finds everyone doing well and of course dancing!!! Since you last heard from me, Jim and I attended the USABDA Southeast Regional competition held in Atlanta, Georgia this past week-end! What a GREAT time we had!! We met LOTS of new people and got to see lots of people we had not seen in a while! These USABDA events are great...there are always old friends to visit with and we always meet new people every time we attend a USABDA event!

What a great competition this was...heavy competition in American style...most heats started with a semi-final and a few were quarter finals. Job and Sandi Travassos and Bill and Sharon Wheat attended from Jacksonville. We all danced great and had a fabulous time!! Kudos to Ann Smith and the Atlanta Chapter...they did a GREAT job!!

Enough about what I have been doing, let's see what we got going on!! Well, it's my birthday week-end so you know I will be dancing!!
