Jerry and I, and Missy and Judi, would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you for coming out to our 24th Annual “Texas Hoe-Down”, which was held this past week-end March 22-23-24. Our 2012 event was our largest attendance ever and we matched those numbers this year. The competitions were awesome, our workshops were taught by the finest instructors, and the Saturday Night Show was an extravaganza not to be forgotten. Our “longest distance dancer” (actually there were 2 girls) were from Norway. Our “Shelley’s Award” for 2013 went to Mike Wagner. Everyone said they had a fantastic time and anyone that attends one year, always comes back. I guess we are doing something right. Again, thanks to all of our wonderful dancers and dance enthusiasts. Country-Western Dance is “the place to be.”
Make plans now to join us in Ft. Worth, Texas, on March 28th thru March 30th, 2014. It will be bigger and even better than last year.
