Angel Island Revlsited
by Ron Masker The annual 4th of July WSD Primal Square Dance to Angel Island was held on July 2Oth this year due to the LACSDC@ convention. It was a beautiful sunny day with 20 WSD'ersand friends meeting at the RedArVhiteferry, with Dan's mother meeting us at Tiburon on the way over. For those who have been there before you know what a fun day it can be and it was. We were even granted a delightful surprise by being dropped off on the other side of the island due to a Special Reconigation Day for the immigration center that was once located there. It was nice not having to climb those 'Vonderful" steps to get to the other side. The weather was fantastic all day. Dancers eamed thoses great dangles like the "duckie", "sandflea","dancing with a bald man", ect. Plus a special new dangle that was created for the day by Mike Sellers which will be available from our Dangle Diva in the near future to anyone that has been there. Thanks go to all the dancers from Diablo Dancers, Foggy Cify, El Camino Reelers, and Midnight Squares for joining us. We look forward to seeing you back next vear on Julv 4th 1997.

(formally Douglas Dlementary School) on 19th between Collingwood and Diamond. So, start oiling that leather, polishing your buckels,and clips. See ya' there. The Yellow class is doing really well and they're charging through Mainstream fast. Please plan on joining them October 28th for their class graduation and potluck. The potluck starts at 7:OOp.m. and graduation aL 7:3O p.m.. Club members are requested to bring their favorite dish to share with the soon to be graduates. Refreshmentswill be provided. Be good to each other,
