On 11/23 we danced to Gene Hammond with as many as 5 squares. Gene had us do some unique formations like the one with 4 squares in one formation. Betty Clay won the free dance pass and Jan Waryk won the pie provide by Lenny Smith for the cake walk. A Brecksville dancer took home the 50-50. We announced that we had a successful banner retrieval from Brecksville on 11/15 and promptly returned our banner as they raided us at the dance. We also had dancers from Broken wheel at the dance.
Brecksville, Medina and Hubs are now have one of our banners.

We had a great time dancing to Ed Pabst at Brecksville with 8 squares dancing at various times during the evening.
We were successful in retrieving our banner at Brecksville on 11/15. Terry and Bill Kremzar, Barb and Bob Davis, Betty Clay, Ed Donohoe, Frank Macuga and I think Ron Soukup and Jan Waryk signed in as Solo’s so we had enough dancers to do the retrieval. If I am wrong about the names please let me know so that I can give proper credit.
We now have to get our banners back from Medina and Hubs and also start raiding so that we get other clubs banners for them to come to Solo’s to retrieve it back.

On Friday 11/08 we enjoyed dancing to Dick Mackey. At times we had 5 squares up and dancing as Dick played with our minds in the way he called the square dance calls we all knew but not necessary in the formations that we were familiar executing them from.
The night was our Chili dance and Marilyn Ostroske, Susan Madden, Jerry Wolas, Virginia Marton and Betty Clay provided a wide range of chili dishes and the membership did a great job in providing side dishes and desserts for the pleasure of all!
We had dancers from Gnat Boxers, Brecksville who brought an entire square but couldn’t banner raid because they already have our banner, Broken Wheel and Medina.
Betsy Halladay greeted and Don Jaworske won the cake that she provided for the cakewalk.
Patricia Kilbane collected the free dance pass for bringing food and then drew the 50/50 ticket for her husband Pat.
Thanks to 15 members we had a successful banner retrieval at Lake Erie Squares on Saturday 11/2. The members were Susan and Spanky, Caroline and Frank, Marilyn and Norm, Terry and Bill, Barb and Bob, Virginia and Gary, Sherrie, Beverly, Betty and Betsy. Thanks to everyone that attended. We have three more banners to retrieve:
The Solo’s club also received a certificate of Thanks from the Lake Erie club. They presented the certificates to other clubs also.
On 11/1 nine Solo Square Dance Club members showed up at Broken Wheel to dance to caller Tom Rudebock and cuer Kristy Lake. Thanks to Susan, Spanky, Terry, Bill, Caroline, Frank, Beverly, Barb and Bob for being at Broken Wheel to retrieve our banner. There were 8 squares up and dancing for quite a few tips. We had a good time and lots of fellowship.
