The Northern Virginia Branch's Argyle Weekend, which happens this year
on November 5-7, is structured so you can pay for the individual
segments: classes, lunch, evening parties, specialty classes. This is
possible because it is not a residential weekend, that is, we do not
house and feed everyone together at a retreat or camp or hotel. We DO
provide hospitality for folks who come from afar to this weekend near
Washington, DC.

Isn't technology wonderful? The dances taught at this year's Scottish
Weekend at Ramblewood are posted on the Web site,
www.ScottishWeekend.org. If the deviser gave permission, new dances are
posted there as links; otherwise, we cite the source book, and I'm
pretty sure most of them are available from TACBooks.
