If I'ou notice fellow members: .-.Wandering around looking for Joshua ...Muttering about the terrible things they're goingto do to the bodiesof the "loungers" ..-suddenll'dancing better ...trying to buy' the negatives of pictures taken bt' other members ...and generally acting srspicious, lon't be alarmed; it's just because they .;ent to the }larin Headlands retreat. Endlessjokes and silliness are only a part of the special feeling that grows amon8, people at a retreat - the camaraderieis born of shared confidences,quiet insights and acceptance of people on a different plane: shl' people seem to be out front a a little (sometimes lot) more; critical people seem a little more tolerant...new friendships form, old friendships deepen.

That was the kind of retreat it was. Sorry if you missed it, but there is another being planned for this fall. Bill Whitefield and Bob Bellville organized this one at the Irlarin Headlands lnstitute, and they don't come an)' better for fun and relaxation - thanks again, Bill and Bob! It $'as a pleasure for Club members to mix uith some of the neu' graduating class members, and it s'as great to have Andy and Randt', new WSD members, with us from the Peninsula. We worked on Mainstream, Plus and Al (at least, thel' drug me thru A1...) Patty tlhite and Max Robb shared the honor (?) of being elected Mr. Marin Headlands, and the Ms. lrlarin Headlands title went to Miss Steffany Stamper. This class is to be congratulatedfor (almost!) Mainstream course, and completing the we hope to be seeing, them at the neu' Club nites. The), will be learning Plus, and we u,ill be workshopping the Pius list Thet' as uell as dancing full Plus tips. I hope WSD will q'elcome are a lot of fun ! them and not be shy about talking to them - remember, you were neu' in the Club at one time! A brand-new Beginners' class on Wednesday nights is going very q'ell in Bob Bellr,ille and Bill \['hitefield's capab]e hands, and all are encouraged to come and angel this good-looking group of people. Joining Rod as archangel is Matthew Snyder, a new Mainstreamgraduate. Last month, I inadvertently' forgot to mention the contribution of three great women in WSD: Denise Young for reproducing our Newsleter and org,anizing the garage sales, Gail C. for being the editor of last year's Neusletter and her input to the Board, and last but certainll' not least, Pattl' White for her work on the giant petticoat used in the Gay FreedomDay Parade. The San Francisco Fly-in is being planned and the dance committee is composed of persons who are all members of all three clubs in the Citl'...so donrt think that just

one club is puttrng thrs t'ly-in on! However, see what looks like one club being if -v-ou in control, that is the volunteer staff, and we hope that WSD folks will help out on various committees that are being formed now. If you would like to help in an: q?Igglly, please see one of the dance com(l mittee members am one of them). This year is really beginningto take shape, so don't be left out of the fun - come and join us! Remember, DOWN! DON'T STOP! DON'T SLOW

HAPPI/ NE\v f'EAR,I (A\D PASS THEBLACK-E\ED PEAS!) 1989 got off to a great beginning... -,anks to Bill Shitefield and his honey, Gary. About 40 people staggered over to their home (after who-knows-what kind of New Year's Eve parties!) to watch footbatl. socialize and eat gallons of black-eyed peas and cornbread. People came and went throughout the da)', relaxing and eating and eating and eating. Agnes Smith sas visiting from Seattle and I saw lots of people I haven't talked to in ages and ages. The football game was pretty good - but mostly all I wanted to see Eere the cheerleaders. Thanks again, Bill and Gary, for starting my new year out right - good friends, good food and the 49ers! - BrendaSta.

...showed a fashion! precocious flair for Western

tt Anne Uebelacker called a great dance (as she always does), but somethinghappened to mar an otherwise lovely evening. A Suest was at the mike trying to make an announcementand everyone in the room simply ignored her. Seven squares of people seemed determined to convey their disdain for her message. I was embarrassed for all of us and terribly sorry for her as she tried unsuccessfully to make herself heard over the din. It uas inexcusably nrde behavior for WSD members,(even though they are accustomed to according the same treatment to their o$n Callers and Board membersduring Club Nite announcements.) And it was inexcusably rude of the other guesrs who, like WSD, are squaredancersand ought to know better. What an example to Shame! set for our class. - Patty White

But first, I think I need something tike a videotape of sguare dancers having a good time and maybe putting on a good show to share with the group here at a monthly meeting. And second, I think I need a cassette tape of some kind of beginner's lesson, or a dance involving simple calls so I could give the Broup a sample of what it's like to actually dance themselves, i.€., whip up some real enthusiasm! This is all very fuzA to me - but if there is enthusiasm, I c,ant to be able to keep the ball rolling, so to speak. Alas, I can't carry a tune, but there are others who can, but call a squaredance? Any help, advice, etc. you can give would be very much appreciated. Needless to sa)', I will be happy to reimburse you any expense, postage, etc., within limits, to get things off the ground. Ttren if we have to buy a set of recorded basic lessons or whatever, I'll have to go to the group for help. I fear renting space to practice here may be ver1, expensive,but Irll cross that bridge when I (we) come to it. Squares across the sea????? Happl' New Year, from the Land of

OIJR. EAST FAR COR.R.ESPONDENT It's been about a year since my last letter to WSD and a total of about 16 months since I arrived in Tokyo. It has indeed been a Sreat adventure and promises to become even more so as will be evident from what fcllowsRecently I joined lnternational Friends, the only social gay group I know of here. is Membership relatively small, considering that the equivalent of the entire Population " California lives within a 3O-mile radius downtown Tokyo, and turnover seems there's a core of regulars, -..gh.Nevertheless, and af:er my 3rd meeting and attendance at the Christmas party, I've decided to acquaint the group with square dancing; if there's support, I'll organize a class. I have one Japanesefriend here who is not a memberof IF, but sa\r' square dancing at a bar in Seattle during a New Year's visit to your side of the Pacific. He has expressed interest in working with me. There is one other guy I haven't met who asked for information about the upcoming conventionfrom the club leaders who didn't have an)'. Thanksto the regular newsletters I get from you, if he calls, you ma)' see him in New York, and he may make our duo a trio here now if we can only we'd have a square! round up five more, Sell, I do miss squaredancing,but organizing a club here is a bit daunting to say the 'ast. Help!!! I don't really know what need or where to get it. I do remember a chap who published a booklet on how to start a club.

The big c'orlduide craze uas jazz dancing - it sas neu, fun, energetic, and t'ou could do -vour ou'n thing ()ou almosl didn't need a partner). Arid lf !'ou u ere the ptoprietor of a dance hall, tou could croud the maximum number of people into the minimumamounl of space.

Fortunatell for square dancing, the automobile magnate Henr) Ford thoroughll deteste jazz, and began the square dance revir, uith his book "Good Morning: Afler a Sieep of T\r'entt'-five Years. Old Fashioned Dancing is beinB revived bl l'1r. and ttlrs. Henn Ford." Ivleanu'hile. in Scotland, Jean }liligan and Ysobel Steuart founded the Rol al Scottjsil Countr) Dance Societl for the purpose of preserving Scotlands traditional dance forn,.

One of the things that most attracts me to Scottish dancing is its sense of historl. I can go to a dance prett) sure that there uill be at least a feu dances on the program that m) mother's greal-g,reat-grandparentscould hare danced to. But in the rush to keep up u'ith modern lasle, contemporarl American Sguare Dan. has cleaned house and scuttled fisure l' onll read about in books, such as ilie "Graper ine Tu ist" or the "Rattlesnake Tu ist.t' and --oi dances like the "Arkansas iii,:etle}" "ih; Cirl I Left Behind Me" that m) father's greal-grandparents might hare danced to under the slars, c'hile across the ocean ml mother's ancestors s'armed up the njght u ith "De'il Amang the Tailors" or "i\irs.

TIME

-

was country u'estern. It \uas late on a Thursday night, but those of us from out of tow'n were Betting acquainted, so tve didn't mind. The bars close in Toronto at I AM. but vou can have coffee in them till 2. Friday morning, I got up bright and earl5,, to get a good start on sightseeingat the Art Callery' of 0ntario (rvhich also contains the Henr5'Nloore Sculpture Center and the Crange, a restored 1 8 4 0 ' sh o u s e ) . H a v i n g f u l f i l l e d mt, culture quota for the day-,I decided to check on Toronto sleaze - -'-es,even on a Frida,r afternoon, sleaze can be found by a tackl' tourist! I came to surface with a smile on my' f ace just in time for the first tip of the dance at St. Luke's United Church- A lot more people had arrived from all over the States and Canada, and a pot luck awaited. This dance was a fourway af f air with Anne & joe l-rebelacker.Irlike DeSisto and Harlan Kerr each taking turns with us. After the dance, we went to a bar called TRAX. It had about 5large rooms - each u,ith its own music - each room with its own feel. I liked this bar a lot! Again, they had to make us leave! Saturday morning, I got a phone call inviti. me to go to Niagara Falls, as I had been hintir,very strongl."-that I would love to go (l belier,,e the statement by Harlan q,as that i u,ould do anything to Co). Les Hollouay' (an American now living in Canada)was kind enough to dri',,e Mike DeSisto and me to the Falls. I had never seen pictures of the Falls in u'inter - it is ver!' different-looking in the snow and ice! We had a great time. \like and I shared a flask I'd brought along - he is quite funn5,, and the three of us had a eood time!

It was my first fli -in and thel tveren't gentle r r , i t hm e a t a l l t H a l l e l u j a h ) ! I was going all hours of the dal's and nights (just as I had Planned). It all started uith the niteorvl flight from San Francisco to Pittsburgh leaving oniy 45 minutes late. With Anna Damiani bv- my side as a sleeping companion,we 8ot 1,'2 hour's sleep before bt' being awakened the flight cre\\' so they' could s e r v eu s d i n n e r ( a t 1 : 1 5 A I l ) ! A f t e r t h a t , s l e e p was over for the trip. Anna and I discussed the past, present and fttture of Western Star Dancers. Arriving in Pittsburgh Thursday verrr!' earlY', ue went outside and admired the snow - littie did we know trhat was ahead! We climbed into a puddle-jumper and - slowly- made our way to Toronto. The Customs there gave fuina a scare: the!' had sort of waved her thru, but I was getting the 3rd degree! Luckill', they d i d n ' t s e a r c hm ) b a g s , o r I m i g h t s t i l l b e t h e r e ! Iaiting for us on the other side were Harlan Kerr and Anne Uebelacker, and we were off to SHOP! we'd promised ourselves that we'd just look that first day, and that's all we did but two shoppers get very hungry out in the cold and snorvl Trusting to guides that our hosts had maiied us, we made our way to a barrcafe calied CHAPS for lunch (great burgers!) Late in the afternoon, I called my' host-tobe, Andy' Chong, a nice man who had all kinds of sight-seeing info I'd asked for. Andy and I went to the CommunityCenter uhere the dance was to be held. The Club's Beginning Class \vas going. Thel' \\rere a fun group, u'ith eyes so u'ide open thel' swung and dived all over the floor! We pulled some thru as Angels do. Mant'people from past Conventions started pouring thru tl;e door, and the evening dancing really got underway,uith Harlan calling. After the dance, Chris (a Toronto host) took a group of us to one of the town's popular hot spots, a bar called B00TS (a large disco with smalier rooms to get away. from the blare of sound) and after a few drinks, several of us went to a "leather" bar, RA'*TilDE. I didn't see one piece of leather, but the juke box

We got back just in time to go to dinner at BUMPKINS, very popular place with a mixed a crowd, where we had our oun private room, and I had the pleasure of sitting at the Callers' table. (l mean after all, )like and I had spent the da5'togetherat Niagara Falis for Heaven's sake - eat your heart out, Cathy!) Then off we went to the Community Center for the Saturday nite dance - this time the Advanced dancers had their orin room. I u'ent in once for a little peek and got drug into an A2 square (since I've- only been thru A1, and that a long time ago, I was amazed at how well I did!)

4ftei^ the dance, I u'ent to a bar called CLUB COLB\'. This place had male strippers (yumlum!) Thel' ran out of coat hangers as the place \r'as packed-packed-packed (drinking age is 19 and the oldest in the crowd were around 22). After a slou look around, I headed back to TRAX for last call. SundaS'morning Brunch was at P.J. IUELO\*S, u,hich u'as not realll readl'for such a large number of dancers. Af ter waiting a long time t0 be served, ,tr,ewent to the last dance. at the Church Street Public School. The four c a l l e r s a g a i n h a d t h e i r w a 1 ' r r , ' i t hu s ! S u i t c a s e s were all over the place, because many were leaving that afternoon. A lot of dancers said that they' u'ould see us at the S.F. Fly-in and were lookjng forward to visiting our City. Nobody'' said an5,thing about what \r'as to happen after the dance for those staying longer, so0-0. s l e a z ) ' t i m e a g a i n l I t ' s a m a z i n gh o w popular you can be when you're the new face! Up early Monday, morning to pack and sa5' goodbt'e to my' host, who really didn't see me that much, as he doesn't like bars. We had danced together at e\rery'dance, though. I met Anna for the trip to the airport: the big shocker - Your flight has been cancelled. Snou' and ice had closed Pittsburgh (you must realize we never u'anted to go to Pittsburgh anl'u'at,).Af ter an hour, and changing terminals, and changing airlines, we got off the gound and made it back to our beloved City by the Bai'- to be met bt'Marie, who had spent her time knitting little booties for Anna (t knowT i t m a d em e s i c k , t o o ) . - Eddie

L-'"nn asked me to share this in the neu'sletter: CROSSFIRE GOES IN ALBUQI.JER.QUE \^/ILDE !

Sunday, February' 19, Crossfire I and II u'as the center of attention of the Wilde Bunch in Albuquerque, New ltlexico - another example of the creativity that comes from the minds of square dancers! We will spend many'sleepless nights wonderingjust what is in Elliott's \\'ill, and what does Smiley realll' have to smile about? Is Madamegoing to sign a contract for Charmin? We can't u'ait for Crossfire IIi! In 1985 I graduatedfrom lvlainstream with Western Star. I remember readrng an article '*'ritten by Russ King in the Neu'sletter about "\tihat Square Dancing Means to ltle." At the time, I thought it silly. But I understandnow. Sguare dancing gives me the opportunit\ to have fun, laugh, learn, and u'ork u'ith a wonderful group of people. The support I receive from square dancers is great! And no\\', since mor ing awa) from San Francisco, I'r,e learned what it means to have Square Dancing brothers and sisters all across the United States. Square dancing gave rne a kei to a *'onderf ul group of people in Albuquerque,the Wiide Bunch. I am so thankful that I met Carl Hammondwho invited me to ml' first square dance lesson at WesternStar. I appreciate the club for supportme through Basic and Mainstream. I was so happy' to spend time with Freeman Stalnperand Doug Eldridge this ueekend, intentlS, vieu'ing Crossfire I and II, laughing, square dancing and eating good \ew Mexican food. We have a good time here in Albuquerque.The square dancing is fun, the people \l'arm .and friendll'. I hope !'ou can come visit us sometime,especial\ for our Balloon Fiesta Flt -in in 0ctober. i\1al you continue in your success. Sincerell'

AGAIN!

u'ith Anna Damiani , he weekend of lvlarch 2-6 found Eddie and me in the lovel-v-city of Toronto. Neither of us had ever been there and it was Eddie's first fl:-in (he caughton fast!) I met rnt' hosts, Brian Wilding and David Townsend, at the dance on Thursday night. It was the Triangle Squares graduation night, their f irst f ly-in, and the f irst time most of them had ever danced with anyone other than each other! Needless to sal', some of the newer dancers were a bit nervous, with nearly 60 outof -towners and more excitement than an!'one knewwhat to do with! \\e soon forgot to be cold and settled in for a weekendof fun in T.O. (that's Toronto, Ontario)! The announcementu'as made that Eddie tr ould be quite willing to do an)'thing to get to Niagara F a l l s . W e l l , S a t u r d a 5 ' m o r n i n g ,E d d i e a n d M i k e DeSisto set off for the Falls, thanks to Les's hospitality. I doubt that Mike will ever be the same af ter experiencing Niagara Falls u'ith a man who wears a Mountie in his ear! foronto turned out to be a very exciting tottn. The subwa!', streetcars and buses all connect to form a very efficient transit system. Nluch of the scener! in Toronto seemed verl' familiar to me - I was informed by a member of a film cre\r that I came across that Toronto is the location for man) scenes that are allegedly f ilmed in the l-.S. The architecture is a stud)' i n c o n t r a s t , w i t h s o m e v e r y o l d b u i l d i n g ss t a n d ing next to verl' modern ones. Fridal' and Saturday brought a little shopping, a a iittle sightseeing, Iittle snow, a little rain, and a lot more dancing! A question that I was never able to get a satisf a c t o r y ' a n s w e rt o w a s " H o \ t ' d o y o u k e e p } ' o u r face from freezing?" After the last hurrah on Sunda5', I had the opportunit-vto get together with Chris, Andrew, and several other Triangle Squares, along with of Ron Goodman Chi-Townand Ett from Baltimore. Thet spoke to me about the formation of their espective Clubs. (There are some great stories rut there!) We then watched Episodes I and Il of CCTV's "Crossfire".

All in all, it was a weekendthat will not be soon forgotten. It u'as another opportunity to meet square-dancers and make neu/ friends. Next stop - Denver and the "PonderosaPromenade!" - Anna

b'' Freeman Stamper \lestern Star Dancers is working out the detaiis of a proposal to The Corral for a series of Sundal afternoon learn-hou,-to-squaretea dances. All the particulars are not known yet, but The Corral is excited about our proposal! June Currentll', the proposed dates are SundaS's, 4 and 18, July 16, Autust 6, September17 and September 24. l['atch for fll'ers, liSD TODA\'! and the next issue of THE WESTERN STAR for specifics. The purpose of this series is for S'SD to give something back to the Gal' communitl while retaining a full program of instruction and dance for the Club. The concept is that each tea dance u'ill alwa5'sintroduce the same first number of calis, but end with one or tu'o different singing calls. These dances are designed for peopleuho want to try'a little squaredancing without becoming squaraholics! ['e are going to where those people are. not trfing to brirrg them to us. It's conceivable that a group of dancers ma)' form as a sub-group of tr|SDwho have a l.imited knou,ldge of calls, but slill enjoy the activitl' p e r i o d r c a l 1 5I f p e o p l e w i s h , t h e l c o u l d e x p a n d . their square dancing bl' joining one of \tSD's basic,'mainstream classes. tle'll need fun-loving angels. This is an activitl' for the sh) and uninitiated (like lou-impact aerobics). So tell !'our friends. Dust off your boots if you haven't danced in awhile and get involved in these tea dances!

R.EFLECTIONS by FreemanStamper .refiections on the State Square Dance Conr e n t i o n i n S a n J o s e ,A p r i l 1 5 , 1 9 6 9 . ! i\ SD TODA\ is a new communications medium ior our Club which publishes inf ormation of ari immediacy that would be useless if deiay-ed SIAR. for the next edition of THE WESTERN Prior to the State Square Dance Convention, Patt5 \\nrte wrote a four-part saga on how to attend a sraight square dance. I thought it tas erceltent and covered ever]' point which over six !ears of squaring up has taught me. ine has it rhat there was some corlcern L,raper tnat her pointers u,ere too closeted. Personailt',I don't need a iot of beils, u'histies, and simbols of m)' homosexuaiit) to feel that I have contributed to straight societt. I go to square dances to dance - straight and ga). in nr) erer5da1Iife I do not rnsist that people me roSprscl becauseI anr ga!'; I insrst that people respect me because I am a person of u'orth. \\tren I am in a square, I believe that I achieve that i am a square respect bl first demonstrating dancer. i do ml best, and I expect the others to oo the same. \lhen thel' see that I have achiei'ed tne same objectire as thel', then \i'e can start to respect each other as persons of uorth. Qurte honestly, 959oof the time when l'm at a strarght dance, i do not care about the other peopie in the square from the point of longterm commitments of friendship. I probabil uiii not see them agarn until we both attend a straight square dance festival. I want onll' tirai tfre5 u,ouid be pleased to nave me in their square again because I demonstrated that I u irs as good a dancer as thel'. Once that has beerr established, we can proceed to e\aluate each other's worth as people and sqe uhether or not ue '*ant to pursue a friendship. I tai..ea great deal of pride in presentingml'self in a square and having the others wonder about this \lestern Star Dancers., I don't have "San Francisco" on ml' badge, so I must alwal's teil people u'here I dance. Not rran!, people would ever beiiere I am straight, so they have to knou: (i) a gat', Ql an unknownciub tand believe me, straight dancers knou' the names of just about ail the other clubs) and (3) hum, must be a ga) ciub. Ihen, when out oi the blue, just as tiiey do and hare added to their I cjarrce pleasure irr the square, i have created a positive image for rnl club and for me.

I propose that every WesternStar student shouid be required to take a field trip to a large sraight festival prior to being aliowed to r uate from Mainsrearn. \[ e as ga]' people only a minute clique irr the gfeater square dance worid. \le did not create thrs form of dance and constantlt' take the dance forn as approted by Calleriab. We need to be au'are that ue are ever-so-small in square dance hearen and the best we can do is borrou the dance and use it in our communitl.

Editor's note: \\'atch for reflections on the straight dance experiencefrom some of our newer members in '*SD T0IJAY!at Ciub and Class nites.

\VORD

TO

THE

\VISE

bv Eddie Smith At our neu dance space (EVRC), the manag,er approached me u'ith a concern. It seems that some teenagers (macho "tough gu!'s") sell, deal and use drugs on the steps and in the pla)'ground of the faciliti'. The!'have tried to get rid of the problem, but have not been successful. The manager is afraid a problem might arise b: our hugging and kissing in front of these t eens. l[ estern Star Dancers has alu'a5's encouraged the friendship'companionshipof greeting your friends uith a shou' of affection. I see no reason uh) this should even be considered for change. I u ould feel conrpelled to discourage an"'-one u h o e v e n s u g g e s t e dh a t w e s t o p . t The manager of E\RC does not plan to police us. lt's for sure that I u'ould never consider that ['estern Star Dancers should think about policing its members regarding the showing of affection. er, I do think that it might be a good Hou'ei idea not to have great kissing scenes right

Se don't want to feel that we alwa)'s need but we Probabll' to be looking over our shoulders, do need to show somecaution with these teens. (An occasional "Hello" might help to break the ice.) United \ie might want to have CttA\r(Communitl' Against Violence)come to class night and give us somepointers on hou' to best protect ourslr-es while out and about in "the neighborhood." If l'ou feel it would be beneficial to have CUAV cometo speak with us, pleaselet Scott, Freeman or me know.

bt futna Damiani \l'hen I frrst heard about the feelings expressed bl the E\RC Director, my iniiial reaction c'as to su'), "No u'a5l lie should be able do do u'hatever ue uant!" It took me a ljttle while (and some inpul from others) to stop and realize a feu things. Altirougtr this is our ou'n neighborhood, it is reaill their "trFf " to u'hich we are the neucomers. Thei have been here- longer than u,e hare. lt is natural to resent newcomersin your space.

ON'

THE

ROAD

AGATN!

b! Anna Damiani A few u'eeks ago, Freeman and I had the opportunitl'to travel to Denver for the "Ponderosa Flr Promenade" -in. After a smooth tlight over the Sierras and the Rockies, t*'e arrived at Stapieton Airport to f ind m)' hostess, Karen, awaiting us. We went c\er to the gate uhere Freeman was to meet his host (and collect Steffanl' aI the baggage claim) and headed into town. At the house, u'e got settled and got read)' for the erening's festivities. Karen had a few ti)ings to do, so i went shopping (of course!) in tne oid Denver shoppingarea. I later met Karen and off we went to an evening of dancing,! \l hen ,*'e arrived at the hail, we \\ el'e gl'eeted bf some old frrends and some ne\\ faces. After feasting on a truly luscious pollr-rck, ,*e danced to caller Bud Bennet. i'm not sure if he u'as quite readl, for the energl, uhich uas packed into every Tea Cup Chain but he sure seemed to have a good time (l knou I did!,1 Al"ter the dance, we r,ent of f to one of the i o c a l u a t e r i n g h o l e s to square dance off that excessenergl ! Saturdal morning dau,ned bright and clear. \l'e packed up the car and headed for the woods ( l i t e r a l l l) , h e a d i n g t o w , a r d t h e B i a c k F o r e s t , just nortn of Colorado Springs. V'e arrived at CampLa Foret in time for lunch. After iunch, \,,e were treated to workshops lerr b: [-teoorahParnell. This was fol]owed by a trip to the Carden of the Gods. Here I u'as fascinated bt rock ciimbers who hung on to uaiis of red rock in places where there appeared to be nothing to hold onto! Looking at the rock formations, u'e each found some verl'unusuai piciures in those rocks. This was also a chance to shop for some lndian art and see authentic I n d i a nc r a f t s . The Saturda5' night dance was a chance to hear Deborah do some of her ver)' best routines. \\e had an Easter Bonnet Parade (thanks, ioe!) a n d d a n c e da l o t ! After the dance, we got our PJ's and settled in front of the fire to play "Spin the Bortle" and auard prizes for anl'good reason. After auhile u'e sort of drifted off into smaller groups for some catching up on old times and getting better acquaintedu,ith neu friends.

One o'clock found Karl, Bill, B.J. and me dancing to some Ed Foote's hardest Advanced two-couple material. lt's times like this when you realize ho'*' hopelessly addicted to square dancing ocan become. After awhile, Cricket voluntee to do a little round dance cueing. Pretty so... we realized it was af ter two in the morning! khowing that it r*as time to call it a night (u'e were ail nearll' asleep), we rounded up 'A" a few remaining bodies and did a final tip. Easter morning was bright and sunny; and after came hopping out breakfast, the Easter bunn-uof the woods to tell us that he'd lost his eggs and needed some help finding them! After u'e'd found the eggs, $e loaded up the cars and headed back to Denver for a realll' nice brunch at Dick Rydetl's house. llere we sat in the sun, relaxed and enjoyed wonderfui homemade waff Ies! After leaving Dick's piace, we uent over to Charlie's Bar for a iittle last-minute dancing (l knou,, enough is never enough!) \lhen ue'd dance till \r'e couldn't ciance an), ionger, ue \r'ent to a local eaterl,. This ga'u us a chance e to winci down af ter the q'eekend's actn rties (and sa."some goodby'es). Nionday morning,brought another round of goodb' to m!' new friends Karen and Eva. Eva an( headed for the bus uhich wouid take her school and me to the airport. Well, another weekend of dancing with neu' square dance friends had come to an end. I'm Iooking foru'ard to other fly'-ins in cities where I've never been!

REIJOBOTI{

by Freeman Stamper Steffanl' was unable to attend the Chesapeake Squares fly-in, but she sent me, her sponsor. Did I sa)', "f ly-in"? I meant to sa!' miniconvention. Between 7:30 PM, Friday, May 19, and 3:00 PM, Sunday, May 21, there were 23 hours of dancing/workshops, Mainstream and Plus with a little Al. What started two years ago as a little excursion to the beach for this then-new Baltimore Club, doubled in size between the second and third !ears from 60 participants to 125. Except for Cheryl from portland, Dennis and Jeff from Sacramento, one person I did not meet from Chicago or Cleveland, and me, the only other person not from Baltimore, Washington,D.C., or New York City was our beloved caller Chris Phillips from the South Florida Mustangs. The Atlantic Budget Motel, just I't? blocks from the ocean, is a charming motel with this one carpeted conference room. My' ankles got a little sore from trying to catch up with m! body while doing spins and turns. He:, if that's all ):a got, thatr5 2ll l.'a gotl The room is bursting at the seams with about 10 squares! Ever5'one seemed to just join in the good times with minimal complaining. It was a structured weekend, but laid-back, with Lou Papowsky of Fairfax, \'irginia, and Chris Phillips calling some good hash for just-graduated Mainstreamers through justcompletedAl-ers. I arrived in Washington,D.C., on Wednesday night, Nlay 11. Thursday night, Chris Phillips was alread! in town, so he called a 2-hour session of Al for the people who had just completed their class. Just Ett, Hon, from Baltimore called me in San Francisco to tell me about this dancing and left directions to the Lost & Found bar. I called her back to let her know that I needed no directions as I was the first person ever mugged going to the bar when it first opened in 1973. it seemed au'fully wierd square-dancing in a bar where all I had ever done was disco boogie and perform in drag! Friday morning, my chauffer hosts Tom & Warren, Maury'(the immediate past president of LambdaSquares)and I left D.C. for Rehoboth Beach. We stopped in St. Michaels, Maryland, for crab cakes for lunch. Returning home on Sunday, two carloads of us stopped in the Maryland state capital of Annapolis for a seafood dinner (no pun intended).

Ett, Dave and Russ did an excellent job of coordinating the weekend's events. There must have been about 200,000 door prizes. Since Baltimore considered this weekend to be their banner dance for the IACSDC, the ChesapeakeSquares were able to give size donations to the New York Convention Con tee and the Association. Next year is alrea.ry' planned.

by Jim Head Well, Buckaroos, for those of you luck"'-enough to have experienced the last Club La Star, doesn't it seem like yesterday that our tulled, tinseled and twinkling finale made !,ou gape in awe or stand on )'our chairs and cheer? llell, my'friends, that was actually November of l98r)iow, it's time for history to repeat itself. It's not a moment too soon to once again begin planning for that peripatetic extravaganza of a fundraiser to (hopefuily) hit the boards in 0ctober. We need to schedule a date ver! soon, before doing that I need to get an idea uho-'s available to assist in putting this show on. For the Silver La Star Saloon to open its doors, we need stagehands,lightine coordinators, set designers and choreographers(we're talking simple, but stunning. In short, simpl! stunning). \['e need folks to rustle up some vittles and all of those some folks to serve'em. people without whom a function cannot function. PLUS- the main attraction - TALENT! Actualll', nerve, guts or chutzpah more than talent, but I want singing, dancing, comedl', drama, rope tricks, cattle branding - whichever .Star turns or ensemble Muse moves you. so how much The theme is WESTERN, acts. more basic can we get? But remember, the Silver La Star Saloon isn't just ANY honkytonk; it's a dive !'ou can bring !"our aunt Daisl'Belle to - if she isn't already in the chorus line! So, don't be branded a coward. Call {169-994'7) and let's set a spell around a few ideas. Everything is as a tumbleweed right now, so all welcome!

GOING

TO

ADVANCED?

Whenever an Advanced Class starts somewhere, the question comes up for Plus dancers, new graduates and "old hands" alike: should I go to Advanced now, later, never? We're about to graduate a Plus Class, so people are wondering about Advanced. Here's what several WSDers say about this (more people's ideas will be in future issues): B0B BELLVILLE: I think that Plus should be a stopping point for awhile; new Plus graduates shouldn't go on right now, but should dance Plus for at least several months to solidify their skills, and to let dancing the calls becomeeasier and more automatic. Too man!' people rush on and end up poor dancers because thei didn't take time to realll' dance the level - and each level can be challenging rvithin itself. For a new Plus dancer, more calls would only be confusing at this point. BILL WHITEFIELD: would sa)' this applies I to qry. level, llainstream up: To realll' learn a le'u'el,1'ou need to take the time to enjol' it, to pla)' with it! \'ou should dance it' for at least 6 months or a !'ear - each level offers much more challenge than just iearning the caiis, ilui _\ uu lriiss uui urr a lot of the fun if you rush on before ]'ou ha'u'e fun with the level you've alread), learned! EDDIE SNIITH: There's no need to go to Advanced, But if a dancer does want to go on, I think an! one should wait a minimum of 6 months. preferabll' a ) ear, after-TilTuating at Pius. They' need to dance Plus for at least that long to cement their knowledgeof Mainstream and Plus. A\NA DANIIANI: advance or not to advance? To There is no simple answer. In fact, the question of whether or not to move on to Advanced seems to pose a whole new set of things to think about. The first thing to remember is that once you have completed a class is when you can really start to play! How many of ),ou have screamed "You can't do that!" when hearing Wheel and Deal from facing lines? Do !,ou feel a little insecure doing a Spin Chain and Exchange the Gears from left-handed waves? These are only a minute fraction of the possible variations to some calls which you have already learned. Think about what your reasons for wanting to rnove on to Advanced might be. Is it because you think it's the "cool thing to do"? If that's the case, -v-ou should consider that the Main-

stream and Plus halls at any Conventron or Fly-in are the most popular among dancers of all levels. Is your reason for wanting to move on to Advanced due to a feeling that knowing calls might make you a better danceri feeling is that what makes you a better dancer is knowing the calls which you have already Iearned and knowing them very well, not learning more calls. To me, a better dancer is someone who is a proficient Mainstream or Plus dancer and not merely an adequate Advanceddancer. Here are a few questions for you to think about before making your final decision: Do I know the correct definition of all calls, Basic through Plus, $ithout prompting? Am I comfortable with dancing both parts, Basic through Plus, no matter the calier or the pace of the dance?

-

- Am I able to easilt' and accurately' execute all calls, Basic through Plus, from new and unusual positions even though they' may not be the "standard" position? if the answer to an! ui tirese quesiiu an!thing other than a resounding "\'ES' very honest with )'ourself then it is m) ), belief that this is probably' too soon for 1'ou to consider Advanced.

ROD I\IORRELL:This u'ould apply- to an!,one, at an! level - Do y'ou uant to rgalll' badll? And do you honestll' feel that you're a strcng Plus dancer? If so, !'ou should go on, but if not, you should wait, and strengthen y'our dance level. \'ou can always go to Advanced if !'ou f eel like it later. (l danced at PIus more than a y-ear until I f elt realll' strong, before going to Advanced.) FREEMAN Should a new Plus graduate STAMPER: go immediately to the advanced program? No. At WSD, we take students from Basic through Plus \r,'ithout a break. Personally, I don't even favor that ilTangement, but that's a fact of life. To De a proficient square dancer, you must be able to respond to calls quickly. Only practice quickens your res' time. If you know the calls, but do not re. quickly, you still break down squares just as though you don't 'even know the calls. Square dancing is not an IQ test. Give y'our mind a rest and learn to pial' with the calls

through Ph.rs. As was demonstrated at the Paul Waters take-no-prisoners Plus dance, there is more to coordinate than a column. What's the hurrl,? Afraid square dancing will cease before y'ou learn it all? Even if it did cease, what will you do with all the education? Take some time to learn where you are in a square through all the Plus G'ilf not just that you are in a square. PATT\' WHITE: A lot of people are flocking to Advanced now, and for what seem to me to be the wrong reasons - I was one of them. Ml' friends were doing it, and though I wasn't a strong Plus dancer, I guess I thought that going to Advanced would somehow provide some outward sign that I was really' competent at Plus (whether it was mostl5 peer pressure or just m) ortr;n thing I don't knou,). fuiywal,, Advanced was just stress for me. The calls, which are not actually' any' harder than Mainstream or Plus calls, ,,r!ere vert' hard for me to learn. The reason. u,hich I didn't realize at the time, is that APD is the context at the Advanced level, and !'ou have to knou those rllainstreamand Plus definiEons in 1'our sleep! It's no fun at all to slar,e over something, f eeling inadequate all the time, when y'ou just don't ha','ethe backI,round. So for dancers who are considering Advanced, I'd suggest realli' honestit' appraising !'our dancing level, using, Arr;la's criteria to judee !'our APD skiil. And if 1.ou're reallt, a solid Plus dancer, go ahead; but don't do it unless you're read5'.

The weekend of October 20-22 promises to be one that all will truly remember! That is the weekend that we'll be going to Camp Cazadero. It is located about 8 miles north from the old Cazadero Music Camp (which some of you will rememberfrom past retreats). Camp Cazadero offers many amenities which were not available at the old Cazadero. Some of these include such things as showers with hot and cold running water (!) in each cabin, it?) and real ffin't doors. The main hall has a polished hardwood dance floor, created especiallt" for dancing. There is also a large outdoor platform designed for square dancing, which is located under the giant redwoods. The area surrounding CampCazoffers miles of hiking trails, streams and a 300-foot waterfall. Past retreats have always been a chance to dance, party, relax, and part)'! \['e have had Margarita parties, cocktail parties, sha'i'ing cream parties (ask Steffan)'about that!) and parties for absolutely no reason!

OPINION

b"uFreeman Stamper There are two issues which are never broached directly but which are the underpinnings for many discussions at Western Star. So here's one this month; another to follow next month. Ever heard these statements before? "square dancing is fun." "Are we having fun yet?" "lt doesn't make any difference if your square breaks down as long as you're having fun." So, is WSDa dance club or a social club? The ultimate answer is that we are both. However, many people fail to see how these two elements work as partners, sharing separate time-frames. I think of their relationship as overlapping circles such as the following:

The conflict area manifests itseli in talking in the square so that others cannot concent_ rate or hear; taking the attitude that I'm right and you're wrong; ignoring the assistanue needed by someoneelse; refusing to dance with certain people; and the tist goes The conflict exists because square dan requires human contact. When we crave tr._. social interactionmore than we wish to contrib_ ute to the square dance form of dancing, somethinghas to give. And that, my friendi, is usually tempers. When we come to dance, we should put our entire effort into dancing. When we host a social, we should expect only to socialize with each other. Whenwe realize that dance and social are separate elements, then area C can becomecooperation,not conflict. We can cooperatebecause have used our social we time wisely' and learned to care about the needsof others in the square.
,k f rpiof *r|of {okrloloFf rFFlolo|<*rloFrlotot<*rlaFrlokrlolok*rlol<'k

ln this diagram, A = dance; B = social; and C = conflict. One can ver!, easily think of area C as the true overlapping of the tu,o elements,but it is the area where the "warring" groupsconiiici. WSD is a square-dance club. We teach square dancing. As a club, v!e neither teach nor execute two-step, ballroom, contra, disco, or an)' other tl'pe of dance. Our primar)' reason for existence is square dancing. Square dancingma), look simple, but it takes patience, practice, and concentration for eight people to work as a unit to complete the dance f orm. By the ver!' fact that we are a club made up of voiuntary membersseeking social contact, the social element of WSD is very, important to each of us individually'. Because we are individuals, we have different social needs; some need just the exercise and some need an extended family. All of our social needs can be met by WSD if we plan for social activi t ies. There are many reasons for the conflict area. Someexamplesare: I would rather be some other place, but my lover wants to be here. - I'm bored. I reallS, prefer social interaction, but rt's nice to have a little exercise every once in a while. -

The Convention news is that WSD members were all over the place, in the best possible way: LEON DUBOIScame up with the great news that an IACSDC Convention had its first all-black square. A proud moment to be repeatillE-ii and again, we hope! FREEMAN STAMPER was awarded the Golden Boot award. Steffany accepted for him and was visiblv moved by the honor. MARIL\T\ MARTINYAK was elected president of the IAGSDC,a firsi for a woman. TOM TRIPP was elected Secretary of the IACSDC gain. ANNA DAMI,{NI was elected Administrator for the Gay Callers' Association. B0B BELLVILLE was made an Honorary Member of "G0LDRUSH."

the list of callers that they've signed for the IACSDC 1991 Convention and it's got names you know and love! and JohnnyPreston came with their IvlikeDeSisto wives for a WSDmidnight showingof "Crossfire Ill." Actually, they had to try twice due to a mixup in scheduling,but they had a ball! These two great callers had several sessions where they called together and put us through wild tips. It was hard to tell who had the best time, the callers or the dancers. The dancing and energy level was high. It was great as alwa)'s to discover new callers for us to dance to; my favorite was a man named ClennlVatthew(from the East Coast). This was one convention where dancers' feet hurt from dancing and sight-seeing. New York Thel' were ready did not disappointthe IAGSDC. in and ever)'thing seemed order. The TimesSquares did their job well. Bravo! EddieSmith

SCOTICAREYand JOHNC0NLEY and their crew/ actors have developedquite a following with the "Crossfire" series. Many are asking about it and looking forward to the next installment. tsILL WHITEFIELD brought "BARBIE"to the East Coast and has the pictures to prove it (she vas all over the Bie Apple)!
