In this electronic age is it necessary to wait for snail mail to
deliver the cribs for the Asilomar dances? Could they be posted? Maybe
on a secured site available to those registered (give a password).
We are now coming up to the last week; is the booklet in the mail?
Electronic access six weeks ago would have been so helpful.
Gathering these directions was like catching butterflies in Borneo (or
trading baseball cards: ('Marigold for Alison Rose and Ellie’s Jig’).

Now I’ve lost some of them.

A couple more points. Here in S. California there have been dances or
balls almost every week. Naturally, these take precedence in class. It
is not easy to do a lot of Asilomar dances (in one class, I’m the only
one going).
A 75 minute Ball Review is pretty short (are the 2 reviews
simultaneously covering different dances?).

As a novice forgive this question. The program seems like a club
sandwich with the main dances, the filling, being separated by toast
(the victory waltz, the pride of Erin waltz and the schottiche). Does
everyone know these 3 dances, as if by osmosis? The pride of Erin is
in Collins; the victory waltz is a butterfly which has eluded me.
