Note for organizers in SE and mid-Atlantic ...
atgaga (Gainesville, Georgia contra dance) is co-sponsoring a weekend retreat for organizers
at Warren & Terry Doyle's Appalachian Folk School near Mountain City, TN over the 3rd weekend in July.
I'm covering food costs and Warren and Terry are providing housing and meeting space.
Your cost is transportation and time.
Primary focus is weekend dances but local dance organizers are also invited.
We'll, collectively, sort out a discussion framework that suits everyone Friday evening.
(to handle the different needs of weekend versus local dances)
Here's atgaga's website:
And here's the Appalachian Folk School's Facebook page:
Many of you know or know of Warren and Terry because they run CDH (Contra Dancers Holiday).
Background ... last July atgaga hosted a retreat outside of Atlanta in a large renovated farm house.
We had some 15 people attend from Memphis, Baltimore, Roanoke, Charlottesville, Atlanta, Chattanooga, Sautee and Gainesville (GA).
That was a very productive retreat with a strong request to do it again.
I do not know the optimum size, but the small size of last year's retreat worked to its advantage.
We had lots of one-on-one and reasonable-sized meetings in which everyone was able to talk.
