Route 66 Square Dance Jamboree kicks off on July 12
Dancers and visitors are invited to the Route 66 Jamboree that will be held July 12-14 at the Elk City Convention Center at 1016 Airport Industrial Road. Registration for dancers opens at 5:00 p.m. Friday night, with Advanced dancing and the impressive Grand March and Dance following.
Saturday morning's registration opens at 9:00 a.m., with Hot Hash, Mainstream, and Plus dancing before lunch. The afternoon features two Fun Dances and an education program. After supper is more Advanced dancing and the epic Grand March and Dance. What a glorious sight!
Sunday morning wraps up this family sport with over 14 hours of square dancing fun, prizes, friendly dancers, and great callers with a Trail Out dance at 10:00.
Throughout the year, dancers are encouraged to visit other clubs. This dance qualifies as a "Visit 9," and dancers can pick up their dangle to add to the others on their badges. T-shirts are hot off the press and prizes are being rounded up.
A raffle to support square dancing's activities is held each year. This year's grand prize is a beautiful, maroon 1957 Mustang Convertible with tan interior (or cash), to be given away in November at the State Convention. Tickets, with coupons for $3 off any large pizza at Mazzio's and a buy-one-get-one-free Star Burger at Carl's Jr., are $1 from any participating square dancer.
More details can be found on the club's Facebook page "Route 66 Square Dance Jamboree." There is no charge for visitors.
