Blueberry Hill Campground in Bushnell, FL was the
sight of our 34th annual Florida State Camp-O-Ree. Nineteen
couples and one single from 082 attended. The theme for the
event was 'Pirates'.
The fun began Thursday, October 22nd, when the
campers gathered for the evening's Trail-In dance dressed in
their pirate costumes. The participation of our 082 members
was amazing - everyone looked terrific. In fact, we had some
members who were so well disguised, some of us didn't
recognize them at first! After the fast-paced dancing with
several Florida callers, along with a visiting caller from
Louisiana, our chapter hosted the ice cream social. The
entire evening was a super success!
Many campers participated in the sport activity,
bocce ball, on Friday morning. Saturday morning was the golf
tournament. Our chapter had winners in both events.
On Friday and Saturday afternoon, there were huge
turnouts for both the square dance and round dance
workshops, each one a fun, learning experience.
Friday's dance found most of us wearing our orange
and white Florida state outfits, Saturday we gathered for
the grand march in our chapter outfits. Both nights, the
hall was filled to capacity with dancers, everyone having
a great time dancing and socializing.
Chapter 082 had a grand time at Saturday's
luncheon/fashion show, where we appeared in our pirate
costumes, marching among the guests handing out and throwing
beads. Special thanks to our couple who modeled our chapter
outfit during the show.
