www.Festival.SquareDanceMissouri.com

1.    Raffle Tickets - do not mail, we might not get them by Friday. Bring to festival; turn in at raffle ticket table.

2.    We have just confirmed a festival photographer!! Get your photo taken at the festival on Saturday night. Photos by Ferguson, very reasonable, 6-10 p.m.

3.    ADDRESSING "SQUARE DANCE ATTIRE" QUESTION

Our festival flyer says "appropriate dance attire required on dance floor." We have had a few calls regarding what that means.  We do not want to turn anyone away, and we hope that all dancers will abide by the following guidelines.

Friday and Saturday night dances - appropriate dance attire

9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday - casual attire permissible as well as dance attire

Sunday Doin's Dance - casual attire permissible as well as dance attire

The following square and round dance dress code has been developed and enforced at many National Square Dance Conventions and serves as the most recent Convention Dress Code of the Square Dance Activity, approved by United Square Dancers of America and the National Executive Committee of the National Square Dance Convention:

Ladies - Square dance dress, or square dance skirt and blouse, or prairie skirt.  Crinoline slips and pettipants are recommended with square dance attire but not with prairie skirts.  No pants, shorts or T-shirts permitted on the square and round dance floors.

Men - Long sleeve shirts and long pants a must, bolo or square dance tie recommended.  Western-style attire recommended.  No short sleeves, T-shirts or shorts allowed on the square and round dance floors.

4.    Don't forget your club and district banners for the Saturday evening ceremony.

5.    Silent Auction - Items need to arrive and be checked in on Friday night. Bidding will be all Friday night and Saturday until 9:30 p.m. Item winners will be posted by 10 p.m. Saturday night.

6.    Door Prizes - Items should be checked in Friday night. Door prizes will be marked beginning 9 p.m. Friday night. Prizes not picked up by 8 p.m. on Saturday night will be given away on Sunday morning at the Doin's dance.

7.    Sheridan's Frozen Custard will be there Saturday evening.

8.    Sunday morning Doin's Dance. Lots of people use this time to renew their Doin's subscription. Dance to our state callers at their finest as they let their hair down and make the Sunday dance a fun one to remember as you all head home. Coffee and donuts are provided. There is no extra cost to attend this dance, but additional donations are always accepted. There will be a donation box and all donations go to defray the printing cost of the Doin's.
