Woody: Great observations. Glad your experience was so positive.
Rich: So sorry to hear that they are "insistent" on MUC. Many of us have been
in this situation and we know from experience that the Bride and Groom are often too busy
with photos, greeting families and friends that they often don't even get to the dance
floor. I'm sure you'll arrive ready for anything and everything.
Don't forget "Ellen's Green Jig". I've used it a couple of times in

Subject: Re: [Callers] Floor Space Requirement
I have not assumed that only 20 couples would dance, I was just using that as a way to
determine how much dance floor is needed. I would love three or four lines of 20 couples.
I have not yet visited the hall.
I have spoken at length with the B&G. They are indeed contra dancers. I let them
know that they could have a great time with few or no contras, but they are insisting. I
will include a longways and a circle mixer, if space allows, before I go to contras. I
will have some easy, gender free contras to start, and a few very easy duple improper
contras. It is their day, and they are calling the shots, but perhaps as the event
develops, I can persuade them to be flexible. I have many ONS dances to draw from.
Thanks for the advice, it will be useful.
