Casa Grande has been the site of the WINs dance rally for the past 15 years. It is held at the Casa Grande Fairgrounds just outside of town. I attended last year and and wasn't going to participate but friends convinced me to attend one more time and brush up my Two-Step and Country Waltz.
The week was packed full of dance lessons. The schedule went something like this:
8:00 coffee and hugs
9:00-10:00 Line dancing
10:30-12:30 Two Step lessons and turns or some other dance. It changed daily
1:30-3:30 Review of the above and more new stuff
5:00 Happy hour
7:00-10:00 Dancing...I never made it past 9:30.
I think you get the picture. It was BUSY!!! I fact, so busy I didn't take any pictures. Here is a link to another WIN member who will eventually have some pictures up on her blog. You should be able to copy and paste it to your browser: http://ladynomad2005.blogspot.com . Her blog also makes interesting reading. Some of the dance nights had a theme and one night was hippy night which everyone had fun with.
We had part of Friday off and a few of the guys took their Harleys for a spin. I had the previlege of being "fender fluff" on the back of one of the Harleys. I'd never heard that expression before and I don't consider myself "fender fluff". My driver said I was a pretty good passenger. Anyway, we did a loop up through Globe with an elevations change from about 1500 to almost 5000'. Just a little cool. Our leader only stopped twice so pictures are limited. I guess he was either very cold or had a hot date he had to get to. Dennis ( a new PM i.e. prospective member) was my driver (below).
The week's festivities were topped off with a "Senior" Prom. The theme was the 50s,60s, and 70s, which most of us remembered. Some of the ladies actually dressed up in prom dresses and everyone looked very handsome.
