23rd Birthday Dance

We had five squares for our Birthday Party held on 16th July 2011, and Alan and Andrew gave us a good night's dancing. There were two squares down from Brisbane, which was good to see. Andrew wasn't feeling 100 percent but still managed to call a couple of numbers. Thanks to the committee for organising the event. Here are some photos.

A Great Birthday


You might say it was back to the good old days of friendship and wonderful dancing with six squares packing the Maher Hall on the 18th July to celebrate the Gold Coast’s longest running club’s big birthday.

People came from far and wide and everyone had a ball.  Gwen Moritz, one of the club’s founding members, was joined by Janet Plumridge, one of our newest members, to cut the beautifully decorated 21st birthday cake, professionally made by long-term member, Sue Mackley.

Alan Evans challenged us with his unique calling style, while Andrew Reid’s easy-on-the ear singing was a real pleasure to dance to. 

Special thanks go to the Butler family for their extremely hard work in decorating the hall and organising the whole event.

Here are some photos of the event.
