SANTA MONICA PIER DANCE
SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 1ST

Third Street Swingers has moved to the Santa Monica Pier. This in from Fons, who organizes the dance:

We will be dancing on Sunday November the 1st from 4 to 8 pm at the Santa Monica pier below the carousel and next to the Santa Monica aquarium on the broad walk. We have a few dances left for this year. There is plenty of street parking; there is also a parking structure on 2nd Street next to the police station. The Santa Monica parking Mall has 3 hours of free parking. Where ever you park please read the signs.

Here are a few reasons why dancing below the carousel at the pier is better than the promenade and why you all should come out this Sunday November the 1st from 4 to 8 pm:

1 we do not have to move every 2 hours to find a convenient spot

2 we do not hear anyone else's sounds that disturb our dancing

3 plenty of benches to seat on

4 the cement is smooth plus the little sand on it help sliding for dance moves

5 available bathrooms

6 the area is very well lit

7 plenty of restaurants

SSRC EVENT - FRIDAY, OCTOBER 30TH

THIS IN FROM CATHRYN SAYRE AKA "CAPT FUN"

Hello all,

I just want to share the wonderful letter that arrived from Sister Anne at the Good Shepherd Shelter. It really makes one take a moment after reading it to realize how very lucky we are, and just by our small act of kindness how we have effected other people.

Unfortunately, this is the last time there will be an event to support the Shelter, and it will be Fri Oct 30 at 630pm at the Ruby's in Redondo Beach. That is the last night of the Classic Car Show. We will dance for 30 min only. It would really be awesome to have a good crowd for the group picture that I always take to send to the Shelter. Please try to attend this last event.

I am going to be having shoulder surgery in December so my dancing has been put on the shelf for awhile.

I just want to say Thank you to everyone who has helped over the many months that we have been supporting the Shelter. This is such a great cause and in this economy, a much needed cause with the Government cutting all funding to the other shelters.

Please mark you calendars and try to come for the last dance.

Let me know if you would like to continue to raise money, gift cards etc for the Shelter. I am sure we can think of different ways to do so.

SPECIAL ON PRIVATE LESSONS WITH RUSTY

Have you ever wanted to take a private lesson with Rusty? It's one of the best ways to get a dancing "tune-up."

Normally $80/hour (for one or two people), there's now a special package:

          $80 for one lesson

          $75/ea for two lessons

          $70/ea for three lessons

Remember, you can share this lesson with another person. If you signed up for three lessons, they would only be $35 each! What a bargain.

Call me at 310 606 5606 to set yours up!

* 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!
