    Re: Cribs

    Although I have heard horror stories about this, I (thankfully) have 
    never encountered it to any serious degree in any of the places I've 
    danced.  Many of the balls I've attended offered booklets that had 
    space where you could write in your dance partner's name, but they were 
    not necessarily used to book ahead (except maybe one or two dances with 
    the spouse or significant other).  Many people, myself included, just 
    like to write in their partner's name after the fact and keep the 
    booklet as a souvenir of the dance.
