Greetings to all,

Here are the dances and dancers who joined in for last Saturday's Flathead Valley Folkdancers gathering. We
meet again this Saturday, June 9, 7-10 pm, at the Salvation Army Gym, 110 Bountiful Drive, a block south
of Kalispell Regional Medical Center.

Meanwhile, the annual Flathead Folkdancers Camp and Stamp is just two weeks away! Plan to join with other
folkdancers from around Montana for a weekend of camping and dancing in the Flathead Valley June 23-24.
Details follow at the end, along with a reminder of the Polka Festival in late July.

The Flathead Valley Folkdancers web site constructed at Flathead Valley Community College by Roger
Pillsbury is about to expire, but we understand Cris Jones may be working on moving it to a more permanent
CenturyTel site. We will be watching for an update on this. Thanks to both for their efforts.

CAMP AND STAMP - June 23 & 24

Traditional schedule from past years has included dancing at the old LaSalle School on Saturday
afternoon, with a potluck dinner in late afternoon and a break for campers to set up at Russ Conn's place on
Conn Road toward nearby Whitefish. Evening dancing resumes from 7 to 10 p.m. at the Kalispell Salvation
Army Gym (our usual venue). Campers and hardy dancers may then adjourn to Russ's place, sometimes for more
dancing in the fabled Chicken House. Informal breakfast and dancing at Russ's on Sunday morning. We
should have more details next week, or contact Russ directly.
Directions to the old LaSalle School are as follows:  From Kalispell take U.S. Hwy. 2 north to
Glacier International. Airport.  Across from the northend of the airport is a railroad siding where
there is usually a row of boxcars.  Look for Pioneer Rd. that crosses the
railroad tracks and drive about 1/4 mi. east.  You will see the school on the corner of the Olsen Machine
Park. Enter via the gate a short distance south of the school.

Directions to the Salvation Army Gym, where we dance every Saturday 7-10 pm:
From the intersection of Hwy 2 and Hwy 93 in Kalispell, go north toward Whitefish.
About a mile and a half or so, at the top of the hill (golf course was on your right at the bottom of the
hill), turn right at the stop light on to Conway Drive. A little ways down the road you'll see the
Kalispell Regional Medical Center -Emergency Room entrance on your left.  Turn right at the helipad
(Claremont) and go by the NW.  Professional blgd. turn left onto Bountiful (It looks like part of the parking
lot), and the Salavation Army is on the end. The address is 110 Bountiful Dr.  The right hand doors
will be unlocked. It's a large brick building.

POLKA FEST July 20-22
