GUEST,Claymore FSGW Getaway Program - 2003 (128* d) RE: FSGW Getaway Program - 2003 01 Oct 03

Rita et al.

I made contact with Dick Parks, Ron Davies, and Joel Greer, and will be receiving info via the phone on what worked from last year as well and what they suggest for this year. Once that info is collected, I will do two threads, one for the suggested waltzes, and one for the contra tunes. Once those threads have had a chance to percolate through the MudCat, and additional suggestions taken, I will then finalize the list and create 10 booklets (or more if requested) of the tunes for both the waltz class/dance and the contra class/dance. At the moment we are considering that some 15 waltzes will serve for the waltz class, and some six groups of three-tune medleys, (plus a waltz or two) will serve to cover us for the contra class. Those who have access to their own music can begin to practice prior to the Getaway.

For those folks (especially fiddlers) who can assist in playing at either or both of the classes, would you check your desired classes to see if there is a conflict between those classes and the two dances.

Rita, you may also want to check you proposed schedule to weed out the obvious conflicts such as the fiddle style class or any of the proposed "jams".

I expect to post the two threads sometime tomorrow, and will ask that anyone wanting input on this process hold off until those two threads appear.

Thanks, Don
