From the Chair

Great good fortune!!  The management of the Astor Theatre have (amazingly) donated 100 chairs to the Perth Tango Club.  They have upgraded theirs and Terry just happened to be ‘on the spot’ and asked what they were doing with their replaced ones.  They were very happy for us to have as many as we wanted FREE. They are red and black with metal legs, upholstered seat and back, easy to handle, stackable, and in good condition.  (See pictures) Committee couldn’t let the chance go by so we snapped them up!

Also, I thought you would like to see how the club looks at the moment. It's all dust and drop sheets. There has been a week of preparation and next week painting starts.  All very exciting.
And talking about exciting – don’t forget to SAVE THE DATES for Murat and Sigrid’s visit.  They will be here Friday 16th March to Sunday 18th March.  That Friday night we will be having a Masked Milonga gala event, so start planning now.

Please email by Friday COB with details of your event, for inclusion in the newsletter for the following week. Newsletters will normally be sent out weekly on Sunday evening.

Please note that a separate email must be sent each week with details to be included in the weekly newsletter, even if the event is a regular event or the workshops run over more than one week.
