Happy Halloween all.  Hopefully some of you got to attend Halloween parties.  I know there were many Halloween milongas in Sacramento as well as the Bay Area.  Saturday, Nov. 5  we will continue to work on some of the techniques Count Glover shared with us.  We will need to end our session a bit early as there will be a special certification training at the studio at noon.  The following week Count  returns to us.

We start meeting at Urbano for our weekly practicas on Nov. 15.  We need a good presence to make it worth their while. Management of Urbano has been very supportive of our tango community, allowing us to use their facility for our milongas when they had Jacobs Restaurant.  We need to support them in return

Until later, Mary
