One of the items in the publication reports, submitted by the Reporter from the various square and round dance clubs.
The reports are limited to 250 words in the print edition (I'll try to keep editing to a minimum, but they'll be published as is, in the e-Edition, and on this page, along with the month of submission, the Club Name, and the name of the Reporter. I would PREFER the report be emailed, as I can integrate it into the issue faster.
Note that if the report misses the deadline for the print edition, and the e-Edition, it will be posted here, with a note that ''it did not make the deadline''...which states that ''Club Reports must be on the Editors Desk by the 14th of the month, preceding the month of issue''. Since the printer has to have everything by the 15th of the month, preceding the month of issue, my goal, as Editor, is to have both the print edition, and the e-Edition out as soon as possible after the deadline.
The following reports are for the October, 2020 issue of The Modern Square. The reports are noted in the order received by the Editor. These are also available here. If no report was received, obviously none will be listed.

November Birthday Yellowrocks go to Stan Stander; sorry if I missed anyone. Our club president, Jim Finney, continues recovering from surgery.
While one may feel like a turkey for messing up dance moves for not square dancing in so long, we’re thankful to everyone who does their part to keep the
hobby alive; especially the club and ASSDF Officers, the callers and cuers, plus all those working behind the scenes. Whether for the square dance family, or for
your loved ones, the Maverick Mixers wish everyone a Happy and safe Thanksgiving.
The Bluebird Squares moved our September dance from the 19th to the 18th. Had over a square come. Everyone seemed to have a good time. No one threw tomatoes at me anyway! I've been trying to do patter at each one of my dances and have done one to the music Jaeggar that seems to go over well. I'm having a surprise patter at the next dance!
Traveled to Rose Bud September 19th for the Military dance. Had a great time dancing to Phil Moorehouse. I got to call a tip. Of course I did ''God Bless The USA''. I think most square dancers know the whole song by now! Even the part, ''...and I had to start again with just my dogs and my birds.'' Lol! And then an old favorite, Pink Cadillac.
Had a good group (three squares!) at the Heber Springers dancing to Chuck Hastings September 25th! He's a really fun caller and a great guy, and we all had a great time dancing to him! There were three other callers there that night and we all got to call a tip: Donna Gellenbeck, Roy Hestand and me! I really enjoyed dancing to Donna and Roy, too. Phil Moorehouse was supposed to be there too,but his Dad fell and broke his hip; and Phil went to Colorado to help him out. We're all saying prayers for Naaman Sr.
The Bluebird Squares are dancing October 17th 7:00 to 9:00. This would be our Halloween dance, so you’re welcome to wear a costume; you know I will! That's how I roll! If you’re able to make it, please let me know. If I don’t have a square, we’d just go dark, so please call me if you plan on coming!
We're looking forward to Dan Nordbye calling for the Heber Springers in Rose Bud October 22nd, from 7:00 to 9:00! My first experience dancing to Dan was at the Fall Festival when he was the caller Friday night. I really enjoyed dancing to him then! (Your Editor danced to Dan back in 1986 in Nashville, Tennessee, with Paul Marcum, Craig Rowe, and Jerry Storey, just 4 months after I had graduated).
On November 21st, we will be having our annual Thanksgiving Gobble & Dance. A complete Thanksgiving meal at 6:00 and then work it off 7:00 to 9:00 for only $10 each! I am going to ask for a RSVP here. If we do not have enough interest in the meal, I will cancel that and just have the dance.
I will continue taking temps and have plenty of hand sanitizer. If you want to wear a mask while you're dancing, that is ok. Again, if you feel uncomfortable, have a fever, have a cough, can't taste or smell your wine, please don't come!
Hope ya'll come over, and laugh and dance with us!
