Hello Fellow dancers,

Just want to let you all know that we are resuming folk dancing here in
Butte on Sunday evenings 7-9 p.m. at the Sacred Ground Center 126 S.
Main. If you can get over for dancing and don't want to drive home the
same night, we have a couple of extra beds at our house-- give us a call
if you want to do that.
Hope to see you sometime soon,
Eva & Max
From Lita:
"Potential January social gathering: "The Court Jester" and taco party.
Since 4 people asked about borrowing the movie, there's interest in seeing
it, but people are getting busy with the holidays. Let's postpone until
January. You're certainly all welcome to Polson to watch this movie on my
12 inch screen, but if someone up there would like to host prior to a dance,
it's a lot more likely people will actually show up. If you might be
interested in hosting, or have an alternative suggestion, please let me
(Lita) know and we'll see what might work when it's closer to that time.
"The Court Jester": 1956 Danny Kaye movie, costarring Glynis Johns, Basil
Rathbone, Angela Lansbury, Cecil Parker and others. Setting is 12th century
England. Comedy, 101 minutes in length. Sam and Ruth give it a thumbs
up, and Lauren's kids also enjoyed it.
Taco party: typically tortillas or taco shells and perhaps a meat sauce are
provided, and everyone brings an ingredient to share (tomato, cheese,
avocado, salsa, whatever). Simple and fun."

Steam and Stomp, last weekend of February 2005.
*** Steam & Stomp 2005. Here's Bill:
Hi Folkdancers - As those of you who were there know, Steam and Stomp
was great fun, as always, but we missed those of you who couldn't make
it. Just to help you plan ahead, Boulder Hot Springs has proposed
February 26 and 27 for Steam and Stomp 2005. They have also mentioned
some price increases for the next gathering (these apply to all groups).
Meals (three) will cost $4 more or $35. Rooms will cost $50 plus tax for
single occupancy and $37.50 plus tax each for double occupancy. I hope
the dates and rates work for you. Keep on dancing. - Bill
