Contra Dance Saturday, November 3rd 2018

Bob Boardman Memorial Dance and Potluck 
Carol Piening
calling to
Possum Carvers 

Join us after 5:30 PM for a lovely potluck and the chance to chat with all the folks you never get enough time with during dance. 

Carol Piening ventures forth from Olympia, Washington, to call dances around the Pacific Northwest. She's been at it for twenty-some years, and likes to get dancers, both experienced and inexperienced, moving and having fun.

The Possum Carvers from Port Townsend have played for us many times.  It's always nice to dance  to their music. They Scott Marckx on fiddle, Jeanie Murphy on banjo, and Chris Cooper on guitar. (Some instrument switching goes on, however.) They have all been playing old-time music for a combination of years that probably comes close to the century mark. They have been known to be hijacked by a certain bunch of contra and French tune-playing folks known as The Glutton-Free Loafers. They look amazingly like Scott, Jeanie, and Chris. They all live in Port Townsend. They enjoy themselves and we enjoy them.

This annual memorial benefit raises a significant contribution to Centrum's "Bob Boardman Fiddle Tunes Scholarship Fund", and gives us all a way to remember, honor, and celebrate Bob. All proceeds from this dance will go to his scholarship fund. 

There is a workshop at 7:30pm.  The dance begins at 8:00.  All other dance details are on the "About Our Dance" page on this website.
