I had an amazing time calling my first dance camp as the featured contra caller. Calling for LCFD was extra-special, as it was wonderful to have so many friends there. Frost & Fire provided excellent music all weekend -- Aaron Marcus selected excellent tunes!

I was fighting a cold all weekend long but willpower and adrenaline helped suppress the worst of it. I'll possibly collapse when we return home tomorrow.

Here are the dances I called. The evening parties also featured English Country Dances called by Tom Roby.
