The Clubs I Call For...

Ukiah Promenaders The Ukiah Promenaders are the club for whom I began calling first. That was the beginning of April in 1994, and I'm still the club caller at this time. The Promenaders normally dance on Thursday nights, from 7:00 to 10:00 PM at the Ukiah Senior Center on Leslie St, using the CALLERLAB Sustainable Square Dance (SSD) 50-call program. For information, you can email me.

NOTE: We are currently still on hiatus, until I can get a new class started.
Singles & Pairs I started calling for the Singles & Pairs in Santa Rosa during September, 2005. At one time, back before I moved to the area, they were the largest club in Sonoma County. We're working on building it up again.

The Singles & Pairs dance on Wednesday evenings, 7:00-10:00, at Monroe Hall on College Ave. in Santa Rosa. See their web site for more info.

Oakmont Squares
The Oakmont Squares started dancing in 2019, and are a SSD club. They dance on Tuesday evenings in the East Recreation Center in the Oakmont community in east Santa Rosa. For more information, contact Jenny Watts at 707-367-2102.
VacaValley Ramblers The VacaValley Ramblers were started by Jim and Lessie Diffey in 2008. When Jim could no longer call, they invited Bill Silver, Charles Bridges, and most recently my best friend Scot Byars to be their club caller. When Scot's health issues forced him to step down, they asked me to take his place. They dance on Friday nights at the Vacaville Veterans' Memorial building.

CALLERLAB MemberSquare Dance Callers' Association of the Sacramento ValleySquare Dance Callers' Association of Northern CaliforniaI've also belonged to several caller organizations over the years. Currently, I'm a member of CALLERLAB, the international callers' organization, and the Square Dance Callers' Association of Northern California (SDCANC).  I've also belonged to the Square Dance Callers' Association of the Sacramento Valley in the past, but that organization disbanded in 2006. 

I've served as Secretary (twice) and Vice President for SDCANC, and am currently chairman of their Web and Membership committees, but I live too far away to be comfortable holding other offices.

Currently, I'm on the Social Square Dancing Committee and the Plus Committee for CALLERLAB, and I participate in the Music Producers' Committee as a webmaster.
