Square Wheels
Chapter 128

September 2013

We had a wonderful time at the Camporee, Fabulous 50’s dance last weekend at Wekiva Falls RV Resort.
We had approximately 60 rigs, 13 squares on the dance floor & many round dancers.
Thank you to all the callers & cuers for a wonderful weekend.
We started off on Thursday evening with the poodle shirts for the ladies & jeans & white T’s for the men.

We had ice cream social for the after party with home made hot fudge & strawberry’s, etc.
Friday morning we started out at 6:45 with 8 golfers for a Captains Choice golf tournament between two excellent teams.
Of course we won with one over par, it’s the only way I will ever play par golf.
Just to watch these guys hit the ball was well worth getting up at 6:00 AM.
Friday night we filled the Cracker Barrel with loads of square dancers.
Friday night we wore our State Colors, it was a beautiful sight of Orange & White.
For the after party we had root beer floats.
Saturday morning we had our usual tables with books, purses made of men’s ties, lots of clothing, etc for sale.
We had 39 ladies enjoying the bracelet they made.
At 11 AM everyone came out for the pet parade.
This was the 1st year for a pet parade and everyone enjoyed watching the dogs strut their stuff.
A picture of the winners is attached.


Next we all went inside for some air conditioning & a hot dog lunch.
We couldn’t have packed anything more into the morning.
The callers & cuers held a workshop in the afternoon.
We had a group of ladies help update the photo albums of the past few years & we displayed the albums for everyone to see.
Saturday night we had a Square Wheels/Gypsy’s picture taken on the steps to the Springs,
thanks to Gail LaRue for organizing this.   She is one talented lady! 

Saturday night we wore our club colors for the Grand March.  It was beautiful.


We had as many as 13 squares dancing with everyone smiling.
For the after party we had popcorn & a blast from the past with all the old photos.
Gail LaRue (the expert) & I made a movie with the old photo albums.
Everyone enjoyed seeing the old & new pictures.
Sunday morning we had breakfast & a church service & most departed to home.

We had 42 early reservations for next years Camporee in Bushnell for a Beach Party.

What a wonderful weekend, now I can’t wait till next year’s Camporee.


Roger Tipps was taking reservations for the International Camporee in Pride, Maggie Valley, NC.
I believe he has taken 60+ reservations already.
Pride RV Resort can hold the 1st -100 camper reservations (you will camp with your Chapter).
The overflow campers will camp next door with a walk way between the 2 resorts.
There are park models available at Pride should you wish not to bring your RV.
