Welcome to NORTEX

Hello and Blast Off!

Was our Round-Up Kickoff Dance a BLAST or what? THANK YOU to Round-Up Chairs Vicki and Ray Spray and the Round-Up Committee for their hard work bringing it all together. We appreciate Pat and Joe Cadenhead for their terrific job of decorating the hall. Ray Savell and Chris Farabaugh gave us a preview of what we can expect on October 29th – thank you both for a fun dance. If you enjoyed the cookies, thank your NORTEX Officers. If you didn’t like them – I don’t know where those cookies came from. J W & Nellie Kuether did a wonderful job of keeping the kitchen well organized and we thank them so much. How about that incentive for attending Round-Up Theme Dances? Did you get your signature card? If not, see your Club President, Area Vice-President, or give me a shout. We will get you one.

Your Round-Up team will continue their work making everything perfect for our “Dance Like No One’s Watching” weekend at Grapevine Convention Center. NTCA will host Callers Cavalcade on Friday, October 28, 2022 and NORTEX will host Round-Up on Saturday, October 29, 2022. The schedule for Saturday will be published as soon as it is completed. It will be wonderful to have everyone together for this time of celebrating our favorite pastime. I can hardly wait to see who wins the drawing.

Have you scheduled your Round-Up Theme Dance? Remember they are Two Signature Dances for the Friendship Fun Awards and one signature for the NORTEX Round-Up. Your flyer should indicate the dance is your Round-Up Theme Dance and Two Signature. This is going to be a lot of fun for everyone.

The first 2022-2023 NORTEX quarterly business meeting is at 2:00 pm on August 21, 2022 at Swingtime Center. Please arrive early so we can visit and don’t forget to sign in. Of course, we need all the Club Presidents and Delegates but Dancers are needed as well. We want everyone’s input as we steer the course for NORTEX in the coming years. Don’t let someone else make decisions for you.

Circle 8 is having a Double Deal Dance on August 6, 2022 with a live band. Swinging Stars is having a Double Deal Dance on August 12, 2022. There are no Anniversary dances scheduled for August. Fort Worth Squares is having a Round-Up Theme dance on August 26, 2022.

Do you share your club newsletter with your Area Vice-President and me? I would love to hear about the exciting things happening with your club. If you don’t actually do a newsletter, just drop me a line when something special is happening to president@new.nortex.org. Remember to send pictures to promenade@new.nortex.org, when you have a special dance or lessons graduation. Include the club name, the event and any other details that others would find interesting.

I hope you can see that your NORTEX officers are working hard for you. Let them know you appreciate them.

Dance Like No One’s Watching – every chance you get!
