EXCITING NEW DANCE INITIATIVE!

We will enter into a "hat" the name of every Member that attends each monthly dance. At the end of each quarter, we will have a drawing for one free dance entry. Below is the break down of the details.

1) Quarterly drawing for one free dance entry. (March,June, Sept, Dec )
2) Only Members will be eligible.
3) Each dance the Member attends will result in their name being put in the "hat." (So if you attend all 3 dances in the Quarter, you will      have three chances to win)
4) Names in the "hat" will not carry over to the next Quarter. We start new each Quarter.
