[livejournal.com profile] cuyahogarvr and I went square dancing with John Marshall's Phantom 8s A2 group last night. I wasn't feeling all that thrilled about going dancing... a night at home was more my agenda. Still, we had a great time with better-than-average dancing, even for Phantom 8s.

John said he plans to put me on the mic the next Tuesday I'm there. I'd better have especially solid material well rehearsed in prepartion... it's a very demanding floor and I wouldn't want to crater in my first on-mic appearance with them.

John and Bill Harrison are jointly calling an afternoon C1/C2 dance December 13; we signed up ourselves and [livejournal.com profile] kent4str for that one. Later that same evening, Betsy Gotta is calling for the DC Lambda Squares so it will be a full day of dancing.

[livejournal.com profile] cuyahogarvr and I went dancing with John Marshall's Phantom 8s group in Virginia yesterday evening. It's a high level Advanced club and not for the timid.

We received our official Phantom 8s badges last night too! [livejournal.com profile] kent4str has a badge waiting for him, but he was at a chorus rehearsal last night so he'll have to go dancing Sept 23 to collect his badge.

John had four squares on the floor and, for the most part, our square was typically successful. There were a couple of problem tips but that was largely due to one particular couple who was in our square each time. I can't quite figure if he was never a strong A2 dancer to begin with, if he's having difficulty hearing the calls or if he has severely declining overall ability. His wife is dancing well enough but she's dedicating a lot of her attention span to correcting him so she occasionally misses a call as well. Ah, well... the rest of us just smiled and muddled through as best we could.

John and Mary are working on a possible C2 course for the fall but are frustrated trying to find a space which would be consistently available and affordable. I'm sure they'll find something eventually but they may have to adjust their original schedule.

Last night, [livejournal.com profile] cuyahogarvr and I went to Ettseteras to dance C1 to our newly minted MBA-owner, [livejournal.com profile] justetthon. [livejournal.com profile] kent4str was initially going to join us but backed out at the last minute; still, we had two squares on the floor all evening.

Tonight, despite the best efforts of DC commuter-hell traffic, [livejournal.com profile] cuyahogarvr and I danced A2 with John Marshall's Phantom 8s group in Vienna, VA. Dave & Gill Clay were also there from Nottingham, England; Dave called a fun tip part-way through the evening too. John offered me a chance to call a tip jointly with him! Squee! I declined: I wasn't mentally up to the task tonight, had no material and no microphone. Still, I'll be prepared for the next time he offers!

Wednesday, we have dinner with [livejournal.com profile] volunqueer. Thursday, [livejournal.com profile] justetthon is calling A2 and C1 for the DC Lambda Squares in Washington DC, with dinner at Thai Tanic prior. Fun stuff!

Having set up computer system backups to chug overnight, I'm now heading for bed.
