From the Chair

We have four special milongas this month, so put these in your diary!
Tuesday 5 December is International Volunteers Day and to celebrate our wonderful volunteers we are holding a “Thank You” Milonga in place of the normal Tuesday night practica.  This is a FREE entry milonga with a special supper in recognition of all our helpers, past and present.  Come along and show your support for the wonderful job they do!
Saturday 16 December is our traditional third Saturday, but this one will be special.  It’s our Gala Christmas Milonga complete with Christmas decorations, a tree in the middle of the room, and (again) a wonderful supper.  Celebrate Christmas with your tango friends.  Tickets are $20 for members and $30 for visitors and will be available through Eventbrite by next weekend.

Monday 25 December is your chance to dance on Christmas Day, when just about everything else is closed.  It’s free, casual, and a BYO event.  For those of you who don’t have family (or who want a break from the family) pop into the club for a warm and friendly atmosphere and a celebratory hug or two.

Sunday 31 December is New Year’s Eve when we say goodbye to 2017 (and the 2017 glitter sign on the wall at the club) and welcome in 2018. This will be the last event before the club closes down for painting and refurbishment, so make it a real “out with the old and in with the new” affair.  We will start at 9.00 pm and there will be three DJs to cover all tastes in music.  No gala milonga this night, just a fun casual event at the normal price of $5 and $10 for visitors so bring your friends, some champagne, and good cheer.

I look forward to seeing you at all of these celebratory events!
