Welcome to NORTEX

Kevin and Christine

Happy New Year!  2021 has been an interesting year.  We had many clubs hosting lessons with moderate success and lots of great dances.  We are looking forward to 2022 being even better.  There are several clubs starting lessons this month.  We are going to have a lot of fun dancing with all these new dancers.

SAVE THE DATE – January 23, 2022, for the NTCA Installation and dance.  It is always a wonderful evening of dancing enjoyment with our favorite callers and cuers.  We look forward to seeing you there as the members of NTCA keep us dancing to some of the most beautiful music and laughing at some of the most unusual lyrics.  Don’t forget you can get your friendship cards signed at this dance.

The Nominating Committee for NORTEX Officers for 2022-2023 will meet on Sunday, January 23, 2022, Senter Park East in Irving. The proposed slate of officers for the ensuing year will be presented to the delegates at the February 20, 2022 quarterly meeting.   Elections will take place at the April 3, 2022 meeting; and of course, nominations can always be made from the floor.

Another way to make a difference is by club visitations.  It is VERY important for all NORTEX clubs to schedule and have visitations from and to other clubs. Please make it your club’s New Year’s Resolution to venture out and support ALL NORTEX clubs.  It will be great to see how many banners can be captured and then retrieved.  Believe it or not – there is money to be made in visitations!  And, with the new Club Visits program, you can earn awards for your club and for club members participating in one of the two Friendship Fun programs.

We appreciate the wonderful reception extended to us as your NORTEX President in 2021 and we look forward to 2022.  Let us continue to pursue Growth and Fun so we can continue to strengthen the bonds of friendship and build up our favorite pastime.  It is our pleasure and honor to serve the dancers and clubs of NORTEX.

Let’s Do It!
