Dear ECTA Members,
Already the first ECTA branch specific event of the year 2017 is over. The Student Jamboree in the city of Datteln was a wonderful event. On a really beautiful sunny weather day, besides many students there were also a lot of graduated dancers. The Intros in the afternoon, which gave allowed a peak into all the dance forms represented by ECTA, were also very well attended. This is something I am very pleased. It shows a certain curiosity about dancing also beyond Square Dance.
For the organization of this event, I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Square Breakers Recklinghausen once again. Their commitment to this event and the wonderful weather has resulted in an optimal interaction. Not to mention the leaders, who have contributed both to the program as well as to the intros to turn this afternoon and evening in a great success.
An interaction of another kind can be made possible by the members at this year's Annual General Membership Meeting. It takes place as usual on the Sunday of the ECTA Convention. This is the year it will be July 2, 2017. According to the usual rotation, the office of President, Secretary, Square Dance Coordinator and Contra Coordinator are for vote. If you are interested in one of the offices and would like to submit a candidature, this can be done to our Librarian Martin Batisweiler on the one hand by good old postal mail. Likewise, he or she can also get in contact with Martin via email and write to Librarian@ecta.de.
The ECTA Convention, this need to be notified, is not the next event. The next branch specific event we will have is the ECTA Round Dance Festival on May 27 and 28, 2017 in the city of Gerbrunn near Würzburg/Germany.
Looking forward to meeting as much of you as possible there.
