The Overalls Weekly – 10/3/2019

Overalls Weekly – 10/03/2019


Today (October 3, 2019) is the last day we are excepting new dancers.  We will be moving full speed ahead from here.  Thank you everyone for working together to get this new class going.  We absolutely could not do it without you.

We still will need plenty of angels to help with our class so please try and stay for the class so we can help introduce these new dancers to the fun of square dancing!  We appreciate every one of the angels who stay for the class, we have comments from the new dancers expressing their appreciation as well!


This weekend is our next dance which is our Fall Fling. The dance will be here at Royer Park on Saturday, October 5th.  Pre-rounds with Mary Ann Callahan from 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm followed by Dan Nordbye calling Full Plus.  We are going to have a great time.  You won’t want to miss it!

Flyer: Overalls Fall Fling.


Many of your have heard that Ben Goldberg passed away on July 18th.  Ben Goldberg was a caller from the bay area who was loved and respected by everyone who knew him.  There will be a benefit / memorial dance on Saturday, October 12, 2019 (7:00 pm – 10:30 pm) in his honor.  The location will be the Oakdale Grange Hall, F St & Lambuth, Oakdale, CA.  Many callers and cuers from our area will be providing their services with round (Phase II – V) and Squares (Mainstream & Plus, with advance star tip.).  For more information click on the following link.

It is not too soon to sign up for the 60th Annual Harvest Hoedown at the Yuba-Sutter Fairgrounds, 442 Franklin Avenue, Yuba City, CA., October 25-27, 2019. There are three ways for you to register, 1) See Barbara Ruffner who can take your order, 2) register online at or 3) register by mail.

Since no one has volunteered to coordinate our campsite we will NOT HAVE any group meals or games at our campsite this year.  Hopefully we will have more help next year.
