So motivate your feet and meet at

FRIENDS & FAMILY NITE TOMORROW AT THE RHYTHM CLUB
FEATURING LADD MCINTOSH

AND A VISIT FROM LOVELYNN

It's the first Wednesday of the month, and that means "Friends & Family Nite" at the Rhythm Cub.

If that weren't enough, we have the sensational Ladd McIntosh Swing Orchestra.

If that weren't enough, we also have our beginner swing dance lesson at 7:30.

If that weren't enough, my good friend Lovelynn Jensen, will be visiting from Florida. Lovelynn took over for me back in 2000 when I broke my neck. She's a cherished part of our Lindy By The Sea and Rhythm Club history. Make sure to welcome her!


HALLOWEEN PARTY A SMASH

Wow! Wow! Wow! Did we have a great turnout of Halloween revelers last Wednesday.

The finalists included (pictured above):

Oldies But Goodies
Popeye & Olive Oil
Para Sailin'
Sarah Palin
Artists for Obama
Sarah Palin
Sol the Pirate
Bomb Squad and "The Bomb"

Our $100 prize winners were "Popeye & Olive Oil" aka Tony & Katie.

Special thanks to MC Maxwell DeMille, Tom & Sara for all the great decorations, to everyone who helped set up and breakdown, and to The Fabulous Scary Esquires.

Reminder for those who keep telling me they are not "good enough" - If you know your basics, smile and enjoy being around people who need a little time and attention, you are "good enough." Also, we don't just need dancers, but help with set-up, narration (as Debbie likes to take a break from narrating and dance too), being in the audience and applauding, carpooling and recruiting...

If you have time, join us for a visit at Marie Callendar's or other local restaurant -

SATURDAY, DECEMBER 6

John Apodaca and his niece, Sharon Gonzales (who is Activity Coordinator at this facility) have arranged for us to dance at this facility. We have had an enthusiastic audience here and always have members of the "audience" join us in reliving their Swing Dance days.

Here is the scoop:

Downey Retirement Center
11500 Dolan Ave.
Downey, CA 90241
Sharon Gonzales, Activity Coordinator

Saturday, Dec. 6, '08, 2-3 PM

Current participants are being recruited by John and Scott but so far it is rumoured that:

John Apodaca, Scott Giordano, Debbie Wastling, Matt Bartley, Carol Hackett & Jessica Densmore will be there. I know there are more but John and Scott know who they are and we will update the participant list after we accomplish the Whitter Event this saturday.

RSVP and add yourself to the list - I am sure if you have time afterwards, John or Scott will have an idea of a local restaurant for us to meet and enjoy a pre-Holiday celebration.

LaSantaSwing.comI just have so much fun receiving emails from my friends around the world. I got this one today on a wonderful swing dance camp in the March. Take a look and weep!

* Wondering what the heck a "gate"is? This was a phrase popularized by 1940's comedian, Jerry Colonna, who would holler it out every time he was introduced on the Bob Hope radio program. It was a friendly salutation to a swing cat (dancer or swing music enthusiast). Basically, we swing like a gate!


JOIN THE FUN!
BUT, WHAT THE HECK IS IT?

Many of you still don't know about our Swing Shift Rhythm Club. It's one of our best kept secrets. Now is the time to get the SSRC "above the radar."

THE SWING SHIFT RHYTHM CLUB (SSRC), founded in 2000 by Rusty Frank's swing dance students, The SSRC has two missions:

1. Having fun! (Fun) 2. Doing good deeds! (Philanthropy)

1. Having fun: Events where swing dancers can socialize and get to know each other outside of class (vintage clothes shopping, going to a dance-related movie, dancing in the park, eating at retro restaurants before a dance, etc.).

2. Doing good deeds: Events where we bring swing dancing to hospitals, senior homes, and community events for the purpose of good deeds, entertainment, and education in the Los Angeles area.

The SSRC is a volunteer club open to the public and the events are organized by its members. There are no dues. Members can attend as many or as few events as they wish.
