BCFESTIVAL 2017 in Region 2 Thurs. to Sat. July 6, 7, 8, 2017
By Wendy Krueger, Co-Chair VENUE: Cloverdale Rodeo Grounds
The BCFestival 2017 website, Facebook page, and email address all went “live” on December 29th, 2015, three days ahead of schedule!! What a thrill to have accomplished all of this. The committee extends their heartfelt appreciation to Maureen Wilson, our website designer, and to Christine Dahl, our secretary, for the hours and hours of work they have put in to get all of this ready for us. With the utmost grace, these ladies withstood repeated interference from me, which I am sure had to be challenging for them. Congratulations and a big thank you, Maureen and Christine. We should do something to celebrate! I know--we are! This whole effort is doing something to celebrate the fabulous activity we all love.
With the preparatory phase finished now, Maureen and Christine will be able to relax. It is our Publicity, Advertising, and Promotion couple who will be gearing up for the next huge effort. Jean and Alex Galbraith have a lot of experience and ideas to bring to the campaign. But they are not undertaking this great campaign all alone. Let us all give them our utmost in enthusiastic support and willingness to help in every way.
Yes, DANCERS, CALLERS, AND CUERS of Region 2, of British Columbia and the surrounding area! We are on a campaign much like a political candidate’s election campaign. This campaign we are on is to SPREAD THE NEWS about BCFestival 2017, to SOW INTEREST AND ENTHUSIASM for the event, and to secure YOUR VOTE as the best, most worthwhile choice you can make for how you will spend your time on July 6, 7, and 8, 2017!! In the end, it is YOU who will CHOOSE what you do with your three days, and it is YOU who will DECIDE whether those three days are to be spent in the company of energetic, happy, outgoing FRIENDS OLD AND NEW, enriching each other’s enjoyment of life through this shared experience. Your registration form is YOUR BALLOT.
Imagine a world where dancing starts at 10 a.m. each morning and finishes at 10 p.m. each night. Imagine the only other things you have to do besides dance are eat, sleep, and visit with other dancers! That sounds like a wonderful world to me. That’s the unique little slice of Dancer Heaven we are creating for you for three days at BCFestival 2017 in Cloverdale (Surrey) B.C.
