The Clubs I Call For...
|The Ukiah Promenaders are the club for whom I began calling first. That was the beginning of April in 1994, and I'm still calling for them at this time. The Promenaders 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.|
|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 Frontier Twirlers
in Willits are actually the second club I started calling for,
back in 1994. However, I couldn't guarantee that I wouldn't have
to leave the area to find work, and they hired a different caller
after a couple of months. As it turned out, I didn't leave, and
now I'm calling for them again. They dance on Monday nights, 7:00
to about 9:00 PM, at the Willits Center for the Arts on Commercial
St. (That's right next to the theater.) For information, contact

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 Mainstream Committee and the Plus Committee for
