Good morning, yes, it is Thanksgiving Day, which means it won't be long until Christmas, which also means it's not too long till winter brrrrr. We hope this post finds everyone well or as well as can be expected at most of our ages. 

On the Square Dance scene there will not be dancing tonight at Adams Aces as the schools are closed. Wednesday evening is of course the Village Squares where everything is flowing along very nicely, with some learning Plus, some learning Mainstream and others finishing up the Basic Program.
Next Sunday October 14th. 2:00 - 4:00 PM is when The Cookie Club starts up for another season of Advanced Dancing (A1 & A2) and we look forward to seeing everyone again. 
Also, next Sunday is the first ever HARVEST HOP held at the Centre Charles-Emile Claude, 146 Chevrier Ave. Cornwall 1:30 - 4:00 PM. Don Moger, Dave Hutchinson, and Jean Clingin. Full Basics through to A2, & Rounds. 

I just checked the weather and it looks like rain and warm today and it will stay like that for a few days then drop to around between 10 and 15 degrees till about Oct. 22. so I'm not too sure whats happening over at the golf course, as I haven't played in almost four weeks.

That's all I have for today, enjoy your Turkey, if that's what your having, don't eat too much, which we all do, and take care of yourself and each other and I'll see you on the Dance Floor.

Adams Aces

Good evening Dancers, 
We send this out hoping everyone was unharmed by the storm on Friday evening. We were on our way to the Lake and in Arnprior when it hit there and we had to pull off the highway as the visibility was zero. Anyway we are all safe and no damage either at the lake or at home. We hope and pray you all have no undamaged and are uninjured. It was quite a storm.

We have just received an email from the Community Use Of Schools from whom we rent Queen Elizabeth School informing us that all schools in Ottawa are closed tomorrow including before, during and after regular school hours.
Adams Aces will not be dancing tomorrow evening.

Good Monday morning Dancers, yes, Adams Aces will start tonight, and yes, it will be warm (hot) in the gym, King just emailed me with a great idea that we could wear clothing appropriate for warm (hot) weather and that he and we will bring a couple of fans to help make it feel a little cooler. The high temperature for today is going to be 28C. which will feel like 35C., so by all means wear something cool.

My challenge will be to keep the Tips short while trying to cover all or at least most of the A1 Calls and catch most of the Plus Calls on the way through, staying cool and making the evening pleasureful and fun for you, as we start into our 44 year as a Caller Couple.

That's all I have for today and we hope to see you all at Aces this evening. Take care of yourself and each other and I'll see you on the Dance Floor.

We are back in town and thinking about the Square Dance Season for 2018 / 19. We hope everyone is healthy and have had a wonderful summer, although we understand it was very warm here with some uncomfortable humidity for an extended period of time.
The Village Squares will be hosting their first of three Open Houses on Wednesday September 5th at the Roy G Hobbs Centre from 7:30 PM till 9:30 PM. If you know of anyone interested in lessons bring them out and we'll do our best to give them a memorable evening. We will also be working through the Basic / Mainstream List for the Dancers in that program, and work on some Plus Calls that some Dancers are looking for as well.

Adams Aces this A1 Club will start on September 17 at The Queen Elizabeth Public School from 8:00 PM till 10:00 PM. We will be concentrating on positional definition dancing this season, in preparation to move onto the A2 Program for those dancers wishing to do so.

The Cookie Club will be active once again starting on Sunday, October 14th at the Roy G Hobbs Centre from 2:00 - 4:00 PM  and working in the A2 program with a few extensions from time to time. I will post more on this later.
