Hi Everyone who was at NEFFA,
It was very fun getting to meet many of you in person. I think it worked well to have a
couple of options and different times for gatherings.
Aside from the great dancing and getting to call, my favorite part about NEFFA is
getting to meet and talk with other callers. It's one of the few times I get to even
DANCE with caller friends -- Jeremy Korr and I had our first dance, had to go to Boston to
do it, even though we are both in California!
It was also an amazing experience to cheer on the other callers before and after
everyone called their gigs/ spots. It was great comraderie and not often that we can all
be there to support friends; as we're usually off at seperate locations, calling
Even the sound engineer in the Main Hall said to me on the stage while I was calling
"wow, you have your own cheering section"! when my caller friends clapped,
cheered and smiled from the bleachers when I "saved" my second dance...
I also enjoyed how easy it was to find people. Most were either in the Main Hall, the
Lower Hall, or hanging out in the cafeteria, which we did a lot of. So wonderful to just
have some time to sit with each other, talk and exchange ideas, share learnings.
I took a few pictures which I'll hope to post, with other's permission. But I
probably won't get to that until 1 - 2 weeks.
Thanks again, and hope to see at Pinewoods, for those that are going.
PS: let me know if you come out this way!
