IT LIVES!!! Swinging’ Into Spring May 2-5, 2024 is Back On !!!
(Although this year I am going to call it “Swinging’ Into Spring … Lite”)
Yes … It will be a Qualifying Event (Meaning points will be awarded)

For those who are unaware of the situation the last few months. The short story is …

1) The Hotel I contracted with still has not re-opened yet (Renovating)
2) Option #2 - Back-Up hotel was supposed to close for renovations in June … But decided to close March 1st and start the project early.

3) Option #3 – Missed their opening date of Sept 2023 … and still is not completed

I was just about to pull the plug on the whole thing 2 weeks ago, and just have a “Pure Dance Event”. BUT … In my conversations with Yvonne Antonacci (President of WSDC) she made me aware of new rule changes that now do not require Qualifying events to be held at a hotel. Fortunately, my regular Friday Night Venue … The Polish Home in Windsor Locks, CT, does meet the requirements set forth by the WSDC. I have contracts signed with two hotels for the group, and looking at a third. But quite frankly, you can pick ANY hotel by the airport and be within a 5-minute drive. For those who will not have their own transportation, (There is a train station less than a mile from the PNH and of course the airport) …  service will be provided from the hotels to the PNH.

There will be a limit of 200 weekend passes sold. That way I can ensure enough dance space between the two dance halls.

Currently confirmed … Mario Robau, John Lindo, Arjay Centeno, Anne Fleming … and I am waiting for confirmations from several others.

The website is not updated yet, but should be by Sunday. All information & Booking links will be on the site. Stay Tuned
