BAD NEWS: Last week the band that was schedule to play couldn't make it
GOOD NEWS: Instead we were treated to a wonderful Christmas surprise, RADIO RANCH! Yup the guys stepped up, filled in and provided us with a wonderful early Christmas present, a great night of music, dancing and fun with one of the finest Country bands around. BIG BIG Thanks to Joe, Matt, Justin, Art and Jim for making our 2012 Christmas Party one to remember!
Many thanks to all who brought in the eats and goodies of all sorts. What a smorgasbord!
As a Christmas thank you to all OEP’s we had a free all request dance session till the band started. We had a nice crowd and it was great to see an inner circle necessary during the partner dances. How cool is that? Besides our regulars we also had a treat of seeing a lot of friends we don’t get to see as often like Dave & Shelly and Sherry & Tim. More early Christmas Presents.... ;-)
Doreen & I also need to take this opportunity to thanks everyone for the wonderful Shirts and Gift card we received. They’re beautiful and you guys are way too nice! We are truly blessed to have met and be fortunate enough to count you all as friends. Thank You So Much!!!
MORE GOOD NEWS: Word is that Marybeth is on the mend, sounds wonderful and doing great. Can’t wait to have her back dancing with us.
GOOD NEWS / BAD NEWS / GOOD NEWS :
- The Good news is the World didn’t end.
- The Bad news is you will have to pay off all the things you charged for Christmas.
- The Good News is that we get to close out 2012 by dancing our butts off all night to the uptempo 4/4 foot stompin' two steppin',house rockin',diesel truckin', beer drinkin' music of the Truck Stop Troubadours . Don't miss 'Em!
Last time they played the AMVETS they kept it up tempo and made it a point to call out the dances we do to specific songs they know we do. They worked in some off our favorites like Runaway, Act Naturally and several others and even added some Travis Tritt into their repertoire. Nice Touch Guys!
