Good morning to you on this Adams Aces Dance night # 2, and the hot weather is still with us. Isn't this weather something else, hot, hot, hot, and sun, "It Is Almost Jamaica", or almost to hot to play golf. Today will be sunny and 32C and feel like 40C at 3:00 this afternoon, and 25C at 8:00 this evening, we will have fans in the gym tonight, shorter tips, and please wear comfortable clothing, I do not want any heat strokes happening.

The Program for tonight is to try and cover all the "A1 Calls" from a standard or most commonly used positions, much the same as last week, with short reviews where there are difficult spots. We hope to see you all there.

That's about all I have for this old Blog this morning, so stay cool, take care of yourself and each other and I'll see you on the Dance Floor.

Good beautiful Wednesday morning to you and yes it's Village Squares Day. The last chance to bring someone to the Village Squares so that they can experience to fine art of Square Dancing.Tonight we will be Dancing from 7:30 PM till 9:30 PM at The South Fallingbrook Community Centre at 998 Valin St. in Orleans, because the Roy G. Hobbs Centre is still not open for business.

There is not a whole lot going on that I see, so that means there is not a lot to write about unless we get into health and well being, and I am not going there.
so take care of yourself and each other and I'll see you on the Dance Floor.

Well now, for the first time back Dancing in almost five months, last night at Aces was excellent, I'd say. No, we didn't cover all fifty Calls on the (A1) List, but we only missed about 12 or so and we did cover a pile of Plus Calls. Therefore I say, good job Dancers. Also a huge Thank You going out to Bob & Marguerite Summers for bringing out his BOSE system for me to try, it truly is great sound. 
Considering all the Calls on All the Lists, I see the toughest Call is the "CIRCULATE", "All 8 Circulate", and "Split Circulate", "Box Circulate" I'm not sure why, but most Dancers have issues with them and yet Circulate is such an integral part of almost every Call. If you have a chance, you might want to take a look at them on Tamination just to get them clear in your mind.

Now it's time to get to work on a program for the Village Squares for Wednesday evening. Don't forget this Wednesday we are Dancing at The South Fallingbrook Community Centre, 998 Valin Street, Orleans. Hopefully we'll be back at the Roy G. Hobbs Centre, before too much longer.

That's all I have for today so, take care of yourself and each other and I'll see you on the Dance Floor.

What beautiful weather we are having, lots of sun and warmth and heading for a high of 27 C by this afternoon. According to the weather network this will continue well into next weekend, I was kinda hoping it would continue until Christmas.

For everyone using the Roy G. Hobbs Centre (The Village Squares) it appears that some work has been accomplished over the weekend, which is the installation of a scaffolding type walkway over the great hole (moat) at the front door, although it is not operational at this time, it could be very soon, (hope,hope). 

Adams Aces starts another season of (A1) Dancing this evening, 8:00 PM at Queen Elizabeth Public School, 689 St. Laurent Blvd. Some will say they can't remember any of the A1 Calls, so, I will work through as many as possible in the two hours, with emphases on the following "Transfer The Column", "Cast A Shadow", "Turn & Deal" and "Horseshoe Turn". As well I would like to use as many Plus Calls as possible, just to keep use all current and up to date incase we wanted to go to a Plus Dance. We hope to see you all at Aces tonight.

That's about all I have for today, so take care of yourself and each other and I'll see you on the Dance Floor.

Good morning all, it is very easy to see Fall is here once the sun starts to set and the temperature drops like a stone, at least that's how it feels to me. Although the days of this past weekend were beautiful, once the sun started to set it was time for the heavier clothing, and turn the furnace on in the trailer. Today is our last free Monday because next Monday Sept. 18th Adams Aces will start up for another season of (A1) dancing. We will start off with keeping everything in standard or most usual position, then gradually work through the list teaching, reviewing and using the extended positions. If you have not Danced at Adams Aces then here is our coordinates.
Adams Aces (A1) Club will start Monday, September 18th at 8:00 PM at Queen Elizabeth Public School, 689 St. Laurent Blvd. We hope to see you there.

The Village Squares held their first open house last Wednesday evening at the Ray Friel Recreation facility, because the City is building a new ramp at the R.G.Hobbs Centre and no one is allowed to use that for a while. This coming Wednesday we will be back at Ray Friel for our second Open House Introduction to Square Dancing.  Your free opportunity to discover if this would be something you would like to participate in.

That's all I have to say for today, so take care of yourself and each other and I'll see you on the Dance Floor.

Wow! Summer vacation is over and it is Square Dance Season once again, we hope you all have had a wonderful summer, although we had a good deal of rain during June and July here, as well as in other parts of Canada. Hot and dry in the West accompanied with terrible forest fires, wet in many parts of the East with poor crops for the farmers and tornadoes in some areas.

Square Dancing starts at the Village Squares tomorrow evening at 7:30 PM at the Ray Friel Recreation Facility on Tenth Line. Why there? you ask, because The City has decided to install a new Handicapped Ramp at the R.G.Hobbs Centre, and got started at it in August, but have abandoned the project for the past two or three weeks. I guess the LRT has taken priority over the ramp, I know it wasn't anything to do with the condition of the streets in our area as they are as rough as ever. 

The Village Squares first Open House starts tomorrow evening September 6th upstairs at the Ray Friel Centre. This is your opportunity to bring any or all of your friends out to try Square Dancing for a couple of hours without obligation.

Adams Aces (A1) Club will start Monday, September 18th at 8:00 PM at Queen Elizabeth Public School, 689 St. Laurent Blvd

The Cookie Club (A2) will start on Sunday October 16, at 2:00 PM hopefully at the R.G.Hobbs Centre.

That's all I have for this morning unless I get something different on the NEWS Wire/Wireless or aka Phone.

Take care of yourself and each other and I'll see you tomorrow evening at the Ray Friel Centre.

Good morning, we hope this blog finds everyone well and healthy, after attending or participating in the 150th Celebrations that have taken place in and around the Capital City.

We have returned from Peep's Pond to Lake Dore where we will spend the long weekend, then head for home on Tuesday. We are not impressed with the weather around the Ottawa Valley since our return, I think you have had and are still getting too much rain.

Now it is time to get back to listening to new Square Dance Music and going through the various Programs in preparation for September's start of our various Clubs.

Take care and I'll see you on th Dance  Floor.
