Camp and Stamp 2014

Welcome to the Kalispell International Folk Dancers’ 10th annual Stamp and Camp. Can’t believe it’s been going 10 years now! Thanks especially to Russ and Missy for launching the event and keeping it going all this time. It was a fine weekend of international dance and summer fun with dance friends from around the state. Weather was mild, with a thunder shower late Saturday, and clear Sunday. Here was the schedule:

Saturday afternoon: International dancing from 1 to 5 pm at the gym in the Salvation Army Community Center, 110 Bountiful Drive. A donation of $4 per person is always appreciated to pay the rent. We broke around 5 pm to allow time for those who are camping to set up for the night. Camping is available at Russ and Missy's home, They also have an extra bedroom still available if someone needs an inside billet.

Saturday evening: Potluck dinner at 6 pm. Max and Eva again graciously offered to host the dinner at their home. Russ and Missy will again provide a yummy roast turkey, but side dishes, breads, drinks, even cups and picnic ware will be most welcome! Max and Eva live about two blocks from our dance venue, a quick easy walk.

Directions to the Salvation Army Community Center

Saturday night dance party: We returned to the Community Center about 7:15 pm and danced until 11pm

Sunday morning: Potluck breakfast at 9 am with Russ and Missy at their home. There was an oven omelet and scrambled eggs for those who preferred meatless fare, but side dishes, breads, fruits, drinks, etc., were again most welcome. After breakfast, we continued dancing in the famous Chicken House as long as folks could stay.

Russ has been in communication with an organization that is trying to find a host family for a high school exchange student from China who loves international dance and wants to be in a community with an active group. I think at this point he's already found a likely family, but let him know if you're interested (406-862-3456).

Happy dancing,

Don


At this point, we do not have any pictures of the afternoon session. Sally taught a Turkish dance she learned from Ahmet Lüleci called Inaduna - sounds like: ee - nah - du - NAH. I have posted a video of Sally dancing this on YouTube: Inaduna
Russ taught Bicak - Bulgaria, Pirin.
And a few worked on Rorospols.
