Our spring season is almost over with only one more class to go, and our final event was a fitting success to end one of the most remarkable seasons I've experienced here so far. As usual there are things I personally wish I'd done differently, but the evening itself was blessed with wonderful weather, the decorations and layout of the venue - although not quite what we intended - worked out beautifully and everyone seemed to have a really good time. I have to congratulate all the non-dancers who got up and tried a bit of the dancing, they all did really, really well, especially since not every dance turned out to be as easy as I thought it would be! The food seemed to meet with everyone's approval and the service was outstanding. If anyone wants to send me photos of the night for the website they will be gratefully received - in the meantime my own shots are HERE (or they can accessed via 'PAST EVENTS' above). Yesterday I spent virtually all day sorting out the decorations into the 'decorations box' and washing the sashes etc. and I almost forgot that I hadn't done these blethers yet - partly because I'd updated the dance programme for next week's final dance night already so the 'website' box in my brain was already ticked :-) I've kept the Elephant's Stampede on the programme because we all did so well last week, but otherwise it's a nice easy, familiar programme which I hope will carry us over the summer! I'm not sure this is making sense since it's late and I'm tired - one thing I did want to mention is that we topped 300 weekly visitors to the site this week, with more than 2,100 page views - it never ceases to amaze me how many people access this site all over the world, these numbers are nothing if you compare them to big businesses etc but for a tiny society of less than 50 active members we are doing rather well.To all those unknown people who visit us online every week, hello. and all the rest of you I hope to see on Tuesday.
