Calendar Event: Friday, March 4, 2005 - Sunday, March 6, 2005

I am not attending.

Hey guys and gals!

Here's the deal for this year's GMGT! We're not going to focus on the physical act of dancing this year, instead...we're going to watch other people do it!!!

Explanation:
I'm putting together a regional dance footage exchange. Hopefully everyone has been backing up their dance clips onto dvd's or into digital formats that can be put onto dvd's. (If not, you still have some time...get moving!) We're looking for all kinds of clips, Cakewalk to Lindyhop, ULHS, GSWLF, mini-exchanges, Original Jitterbugs, social dancing, and instruction videos.
A few of us up here have already started and are really excited with our collection. We figure that everyone benefits from watching clips and we want to share our wealth of clips with others. If you have clips and are willing to exchange them for others, then this is the event for you!*
I know that this is an event for only those that are into clips, but there will be some dancing and other exciting events occurring during the weekend.
Come join us March 4-6 as we tour Minneapolis, watch clips, break down moves, and socialize!

Any questions please e-mail me (Trish) at malo0130@umn.edu
*For those who are interested but have no footage, I will provide some footage on a dvd for you. However, you will only be allowed to take that dvd, unless others out of the goodness of their hearts give you other footage for free.

Ok, hopefully everyone has been super busy getting their collections up to speed!


Here's a few more tidbits on what's in store for the weekend!

Friday night pub crawl!This year we're heading over the Mississippi river to the West Bank of the University of Minnesota campus. (Also known as seven corners) We'll be beginning our trek of brewhouses at Bullwinkles, hit upl Sgt. Preston's and Town Hall Brewery, and end our night at Grandma's! Bullwinkles is known for their cheap drinks, Sgt. Preston's has some amazing fishbowls,Town Hall is a micro-brewery so come and enjoy the local hops, and Grandma's is one of the high party spots for U of M co-eds!

Saturday clip viewing party!Until I hear that more than 20 people are coming for the clip viewing, it'll be held at my apartment. This is where the clip-trading, move break-downs will be held.

Saturday night dance!
The First Saturday Dance at Tapestry Folkdance Center is one of the largest swing nights each month! Cindy and Terry do a fantastic job of keeping swing alive in the Twin Cities so we're going to go and support them at one of our favorite venues! LIVE MUSIC is provided by the Swing Beat Big Band and dj'ed music by Terry Gardener!

Sunday morning brunch!
We'll end the weekend with a jazz brunch at the Times Bar and Cafe. While eating their fantastic food and enjoying a mimosa or two we'll have the pleasure of listening/dancing to the Wolverine's Trio! (Another favorite of Twin City locals)

I can't wait for the event and I hope everyone else is excited!

One last favor...if you currently have no clip collection and are interested in the beginner's compilation, please pm me and let me know so I can have the appropriate amount of copies available. Thank you!

Did Kelli Wilkerson actually post on MN lindy? Shocked

I have to confess. I am selfish and I am already getting it onto DVD. Brent has the really awesome tape and is recording it for me onto DVD.

Don't worry I warned him that if he looses the tape he will die! Very Happy

Kiss!

I haven't hurt it, but the video quality is really bad on the deck I'm trying to dub it on. I'm wondering if it's the tape, or the deck -- I'm actually going to make one more attempt after supper.

If that doesn't work, I'll see what I can do to help. I'd be very interested in helping get your tapes onto DVD, but I don't have the right equipment myself (i.e. a Mac -- I'm using my parent's as I type). I do plan on buying a Mac sometime in the next few months, and would be very willing to help when that happens.

Brent

Unfortunately I didn't get around to copying the tape to DVD -- I was so busy getting my ULHS footage onto DVD. Sad Sorry Lisa and Kelli.

Not to mention that two of my three ULHS DVDs seem to not be copyable! So I probably wasted two days of Xmas vacation on the effort. I'm *very* unhappy with iDVD now. I'll be trying again, but need to find the time. *sigh*
