Oregon Federation News
October 2021

A publication of the Oregon Federation of Square and Round Dance Clubs

Printed 15 October 2021
President's Corner

Here it is October already. What a September it has been. I have called three dances (two for my home club Independence Wagon Wheelers), was installed as the president of the Oregon State Federation, started classes (teaching) and said goodbye to my friend and mentor, Lee Ashwill.

While some clubs have started back dancing, others are choosing to wait a few months. I know it will be a slow build up. Many people are just not ready to come out and socialize. The clubs that are dancing are following the state guidelines for masks and hand sanitizer. It is hard to dance with the masks on, but we have shown over the past few months that square dancers can adapt and do what is necessary to keep our activity moving…

It will be an interesting year as president with all the restrictions. I am glad I will have Tim x2 (Keck and Roberts) to keep me on the right path. I also have the support of my loving wife, Patty, who knows when to “pull in the reins” when I get too far off track, too.

Lee (along with Barbi) was a driving force for square dancing for many years. Not only on the club and state level, but on the national level. He will be missed by one and all.

Here’s hoping you all are staying well and following mask and sanitizer protocols. And soon we will all be “Back to Dancing”

George Hermann
OFSRDC President 2021-2022

Editor's Note

As dancing slowly starts to ramp up, I think many clubs are out of the habit of updating the OFN with their dance information, flyers, and lesson information. Below this note, you'll see a link that appears in every issue that describes how to get your information into the OFN. Besides club info and flyers, I am always open to articles and photographs.


Click here to find out how to get your information into the OFN, including dances, lessons, photos, flyers, advertisements, and caller/cuer information.


We have set up an email mailing list to notify people when a new edition of the online OFN is available, and for other important news about the OFN. To subscribe to this mailing list, just fill out this information:

Coronavirus Update

The coronavirus situation is very fluid. The state-wide indoor mask mandate is still in effect in Oregon. As always, it is up to each individual club and facility to decide what restrictions make them comfortable. Please honor their wishes.

Federation Meetings

The Federation board met in person at the Salem Square Dance Center on September 12, our first live meeting in 18 months. Our new slate of officers was installed.

At this meeting, the board voted to hold the 2022-23 elections online as an experiment. If that goes well, we'll make it permanent. Note that, per our Practices & Procedures, the ballots will be sent to the club secretary. PLEASE double-check to make sure that your club secretary contact information in the state directory is valid.

The next Federation meeting will be at the Linn County Fairgrounds for Mid-Winter Festival, Sunday, January 30, 2022.


Mid-Winter

Mid-Winter Festival 2022 is scheduled for January 28-30, 2022, at the Linn County Fairgrounds in Albany.


Summer Festival

Initial plans are now being made for an Oregon Summer Festival at the Blanchet School in Salem for July 15-17, 2022. We will have more information as it comes out.

We are not dancing at this time due to the surge in the Delta variant and so many of our members having underlying health issues. We hope to resume our Sunday afternoon dances in Hall B at the Emerald Dance Center at 2095 Yolanda in Springfield as soon as it appears the surge has died down. If you have any questions, please call Fred Beisse at 458-221-3564 (cell) or Gaynor Hintz at 541-741-4149. When we do resume, we will again request that those who attend be fully vaccinated.

Hope to see you in a square soon,

Single Trees - Link
In July Single Trees had our club picnic as well as our one dance of the month on the 16th. Both were well attended considering the times.

In August we had our one dance of the month on Aug. 27 with Darrell Kalmbach calling and Sandra Pinion cueing. Darrel was calling to the floor of two squares, most of whom were plus dances and thus good help to some of our mainstream dancers who are catching up. He was terrific as always. We appreciate his being willing to come such a long distance to call for us. Sandra said she had not cued in a year and a half but hadn’t lost any of her skills. She has great timing and a clear voice. She also drove a long way to cue for us, and we are so appreciative. It would have been nicer to have more squares and round dancers on the floor, but with the rise in COVID-19 cases in southern Oregon and Lane County in particular many opted to stay home and be safe.

We hope to hold our regular 4th Friday dance on September 24 with Jim Hattrick calling and Jackie Gale cueing as long as everyone feels safe in attending. The numbers are not dropping and of course the fear is that after Labor Day the numbers might increase. Wait and see.

We have changed our format and will begin with 15 minutes of round dancing from 7:30 to 7:45 followed by 15 minutes of plus. Mainstream will begin at 8 with every third tip plus until 10PM when we close up. We hope to see more members and more square dancing friends out to join us if we have our Sept. 24th dance. Masks or face shields must be worn until the Governor change the mandate. Thanks, everyone, for your support!

We are also hoping to see more dancing at the Emerald Dance Center in October if Roger Putzler gets his lessons started on Tuesdays at 7PM. There are lots of people waiting to get into our activity, and we hope to see a good class out as well as many angels seeking to brush up their skills after a long time not dancing. Roger is also hoping to offer another mainstream dance the 1st Friday of every month as well as a plus dance the second Friday of every month. Again much will depend on the number of cases of COVID-19. Stay tuned.

Cherry City Cloggers really doesn’t have a lot of news to report. We have two relatively filled CoVid compliant classes going on at the present time and all are back to wearing masks and distancing on the dance floor. For those who like to take things a little slower

and more casual, we have the 4:00 p.m. class and for those who would like

to take it to the next level, we offer the 6:30 p.m. class. Glee Johnson is teaching our 4:00 class and Stacie does the 6:30 one. 

We plan to start the Intro to Clogging class Tuesday, September 14 at 5:45 p.m. but that will be dependent on the number of participants that have signed up. The lack of

being able to do demos this summer and really have people see what fun clogging is has hampered our being able to get the word out and create a desire for new people to come and join us. If anyone is interested in joining us, please check our website cherrycitycloggers.com to see if our intro class materialized and contact Mary Ellen Ramseyer, our president, about joining.  If this class materializes, I believe Mary Bray and Glee will be co-teaching this class.  Georganne Pfnister

The Corvallis Squares had a potluck dinner in August and the plans were quite creative, with some sharing potluck dishes and some bringing their own meal. The potluck was followed by a club meeting, with the option of attending via Zoom if not there in person. This has been a season that’s required a lot of flexibility! Our club decided not to hold September dances and we are waiting to decide on our October dance. We wish you all the best as we wait to start dancing again! Karen

This was written before the first class of the season started. We are having two classes this year. The first one is a step-up class for those who are ready to move up from Phase 2 to Phase 3 and we are starting with Rumba from 6:00-7:00 p.m. on Thursdays. The regular Intermediate class will be Waltz 3 review and moving on to Waltz 4, from 7:45-8:20 p.m.

We had a comfortable dance in August for “It’s Almost Fall”. We are in the planning stages for another dance in October. At the moment, the tentative theme is “Don’t Match”. Stripes, plaids, strange socks, mismatched shoes, etc. Of course since it is Halloween month, costumes will be accepted also. Just something fun to get rid of the doldrums from all this virus stuff.

We are always looking for visitors to come and share our dance floor at the Salem Square Dance Center on Thursdays. More than enough room for anyone who likes to dance at the Intermediate level. Marilyn Schmit

We will continue to dance every chance we get! Face masks or face shields notwithstanding. Mainstream lessons began on Wednesday September 8 as well as Plus lessons later in the evening. Lessons will continue until mid-January. We are

looking forward to seeing new and experienced dancers on the floor.

Our Annual Corn ‘n Cluck dance was held on September 17. (This was the COVID version, so in lieu of corn on the cob and roasted chicken, the dancers were treated to bags of candy corn and wind-up chicken toys.) Fun was had by all who attended.

We would like to thank all the dancers from the Mid-Willamette Valley who continue to attend our dances on a regular basis. We would be quite lonely without you. Mark your calendars for our Spooktacular Halloween Plus Dance on Friday October 29. Costumes are highly recommended. A flyer will be posted soon. Check our Facebook page for details for each dance.

We’re very glad that things are seemingly getting back to normal, except for dine-in fast food places and square dance festivals. Let’s all write them and urge them to get up to speed.

Some clubs are just starting to dance, but our club has been dancing for some three months. You’re very welcome to drop in and see what we have to offer.

Our lessons started Sept 8th and are doing well.

Chaps' first Intro to Square Dance lesson of the season was held SEPT 12th. We had enough Angels to make three squares, however, we got our three (3) students into the squares and ran with two squares on the floor. A nice problem to have...thank you Angels! We have at-least double the student commitments for SEPT 19th - will share our success stories next time.

Chaps and Petticoats were dark for the July and August months. We also elected to go DARK on SEPT 3rd (our first-Friday dance night) in favor of attending a Labor Day weekend dance (we had a square of Club members too) - however, the venue cancelled, electing caution instead, due to indoor/outdoor mask mandates and the COVID-Variant increasing numbers. Cancellations were a common factor in the month of September.

On a positive note, a handful of C&P members have enjoyed Wednesday night dances at Bachelor and Bachelorettes and first & third Friday night dances at Salem Swinging Stars - the return of dancing has been a welcome experience for our feet and mental health too.

Thank you to Independent Wagon Wheelers who hosted the Federation (quarterly) meeting and dance night. George and Patty Hermann called & cued and invited visiting Callers and Cuers from the floor onto the stage - what fun and so cool, to experience tips and rounds with a bunch of out-of-area voices on the mic too.

Chaps and Petticoats will host a” Pirate” dance on October 1st, Scott Zinser/Tami Helms will call and cue. Do dress the part as Costume Prizes will be awarded. Our October 15th dance (no theme - casual OK) will feature Terry Halley/Caller and ‘little bit' Sandra Pinion/Cuer. Keep posted on the COVID guidelines as mask/face shield mandates may still be in effect … but casual is a good reason to turn out!

Sunday Lessons on October 17th, are 5:00-7:00pm followed by our third-Sunday dance at 7:00-9:00 - do come join us.

Happy Feet

After not having danced for a year and a half, due to Covid, it is time to make new plans for dancing again just as many other clubs are doing . The process is still evolving. We had one dance in August and one in September. We now have a new board. They along with our club membership, are in the process of making future plans for our club. We will let you know as soon as these plans are made. Stay tuned to our web site and the OFN.

The August TVC meeting was held via Zoom. We will continue the Zoom meetings until at least October. A new venue for our in person meetings has not been found.

The TriCouncil dance on October 30th at the Kinton Grange is being hosted by the TVC with Darrell Kalmbach and KC Curtis calling with Tam Helms cueing.

The TVC had a lengthy discussion about the future of the Summer Festival, and voted for the option of having the Federation host it with Council contributions. Only held every other year on odd numbered years, the next Summer Festival will be in 2023.

The 2021 Seaside Sashay was planned for October 22nd and 23rd, and Gary Clark mailed out ribbons to all who paid for last year’s cancelled weekend. However, this year’s Sashay was cancelled due to the Covid situation. Caller Ray Brendzy informed us that Canada has again closed its borders and it would cost him $200 each way for a Covid test to cross over and back.

Many TVC clubs have changed their dancing schedule since last month with several delaying the beginning of their dancing. See individual club reports below.

I do not like roller coasters. You go up slowly, building suspense, then the world seems to drop out from under you. This past year and a half has felt like a repeated roller coaster ride. The CRD's had an anniversary dance and then closed the doors. We get ready to dance again and the Hazel Dell Grange shuts the doors. But, as in a roller coaster, the ride hopefully comes to an end and you can open your eyes again.

We have a new home with a wonderful wood floor, great acoustics and Jim Hattrick calling for us. As we go to press with this issue we are heading into a new, and hopefully, smoother ride.

We invite you to come see our new home at the Manor Grange, located at the corner of 72nd Avenue and 179th Street. From Interstate 5 take the County Fair Exit, turn right and go three miles east. Coming North on 205, take the Padden Parkway exit west, turn right on to Andresen Rd. It will turn into 72nd Avenue. Stay on 72nd till you get to 179th. Hope to see you soon.

Columbia River Dancers will follow the Washington state guidelines regarding mask requirements at indoor dances.

The Eager Beavers have been dancing Plus every Monday since early June except for one cancellation on the day after the 115 degree day. Our caller lineup remains Jim Hattrick, Daryl Clendenin, and Darrell Kalmbach. Our cuer situation has changed with Yvonne Clendenin and Joyce Hooper both retiring. We are excited to announce that Jeanine Norden has joined our family with Connie Clark helping us out on an interim basis.

All of our members have been vaccinated and all visitors as well. We keep an updated list and ask all attendees who are not on the list for proof of vaccination. Proof of vaccination is a requirement to dance with the Eager Beavers.

We cancelled our Picnic due to Oregon mask mandate at outdoor settings. For up to date information go to our website www.EagerBeavers.info.

R Square D - Link
In August, R Square D decided to cancel the planned September dances and the start of lessons, due to the huge increase of COVID cases and the new Washington state mandate regarding masks. As of this writing, no decision has been made about whether to dance in October. If we do so, our “Back in the Saddle” dance will be Friday, October 8th and that will be our only October dance.

Postponing dances is disappointing to many but the priority is for everyone to be safe. Please check our web site www.r-square-d.info for more up-to-date information as it gets closer to October.

Hi from the Sunset Promenaders and Promenaders Plus. We had our Monthly Zoom Meeting in August 26th and as you probably already know the decision to cancel the Seaside Sashay was made because of the Covid situation.

Other than that we are still dancing on the 1st and 3rd Saturday of the month, as well as Plus on the 1st and 3rd and 5th Thursdays of the month.

As for the mandate from the Governor we are requiring masks or face shields at our dances. We will continue to monitor the rules that need to be followed and update you as needed.

All of our dances start at 7pm and end at 9:30 pm. We are going to start having cookies at our Saturday dances after the dance so our dancer's can have a little social time. As of right now there will be no food at our Plus Dances, just lots of dancing. Mike and Julie Stout will be back in our hall as Caller and cuer on Saturday dances starting in September. Darrell Kalmbach and Tami Helms will continue the calling and cueing on Thursdays.

As a club we have been and are pretty active. On the 22nd of August we had our club picnic at Dan and Terri Browning's house and everybody had a great time with a great turnout.

On Saturday, October 2nd, we will be celebrating our 36th year with an Anniversary Dance at 7pm. Mike, Julie, Darrell, and Tami are joining forces to call and cue the dance. We are having an Ice Cream social after the dance at 9:30 pm. You are all welcome to join us in this celebration.

Times are tough with everything that is going on right now but we can be thankful that we live and dance where we do because there are those that are going through a lot worse times than we are.

Stay Safe and hope to see you on the dance floor.

Greetings from the Toe Draggers. This is a very discouraging report, Toe’s will be canceling both of our upcoming dances, September 17th, and October 1st. Dances in November and December are currently on hold.

Toes are continuing to keep in touch through Zoom. Two of our members are recovering from break thru cases of Covid, all others are doing good as of this writing.

Regarding our club's plan to begin dancing again in September, it's looking doubtful. Some of our members (myself included) are not willing to attend large indoor gatherings right now - due to the increasing cases of the Delta variant, the hospital ICU's overflowing, the growing breakthrough cases infecting vaccinated people, and the long-term effects of Covid-19.

One of our board members has many family members infected with Covid and knew a young lady (35) who recently died from it. So is it wise to ask people to gather together to square dance at this time, or should we wait until later when it is safer? Our board meets on September 7th to decide.

Valley River Dancers
The Valley River Dancers are sad to report that because of the increase in cases of Covid-19 with the new variant we have decided that our dances are canceled until further notice

We will not be starting our Mainstream Lessons until at least mid-October or if the Covid situation continues to be bad, even January 2022. As soon as it appears to be safe to resume dancing we will do so.

For more information, contact us on our Facebook page: Valley River Dancers - Newberg or through our email address at newbergdancers@gmail.com.

Please everyone stay safe, well and healthy. Hoping to see everyone on the dance floor soon.
