Life may not be all you expected,
but while you're here . . .  DANCE!

NYE

At the 

Stampede

in

Temecula

After talking about it for years, we are finally going to go to the Stampede for NYE this year. 

Tickets will not go on sale until around Thanksgiving but last year they were $25 and included dancing, buffet dinner and champagne toast at midnight. 


We have a block of rooms reserved at the Holiday Inn Express, just down the street. It is a smoke-free facility and includes a hot buffet breakfast. Rooms are blocked for Saturday and Sunday nights. You can book for one night or two for the same rate of $175.00 per night which includes either a king bed or two queens. To make reservations you can call 951.699.2444 (give the dates and group name Do It In Line Dancers) or you can book online at www.ihg.com (use Group code DAN). 


The hotel is providing us with shuttle service to and from the Stampede. Plan to tip the driver please. 


Many more details to follow including fun stuff for Saturday if you spend two nights.

Rules of the game: Put your re-gift on the Treasure Sharing Table and take

throughout the afternoon. Have fun, enjoy, go home with something

you have always wanted and be pleased that your re-gift found a

happy home.

Plus after all the lessons are over we have a few "theme" related

dances from the past that we will dance as requests. There will be 

a leader for each dance to help us out (no walk-through but someone

who has prepared to lead us). You may also want to brush up on these

dances ahead of time. 


Late Afternoon Dance Requests with Floor Leaders:



Extreme Beginner Friendly Format progressing to more difficult dances later in the afternoon

You are welcome to bring your own snacks but all drinks, including bottled water, must be purchased from the lodge bar.
