Howdy Folkdancers,

	This Saturday (2/9) will be Contra Dancing at our usual venue, the Salvation Army gym.
	International dancing will resume on Saturday 2/17 from 7 to 10 p.m.

	Feb. 23-24 is the annual Steam and Stomp International Folkdance at Boulder Hot Springs 
	south of Helena.  Several from our group will be in Boulder for that event, so it's not
	certain there will be international dancing in Kalispell that weekend. More later.

	Since quite a few from our group may not be getting the registration details about Steam
	and Stomp, I have added that information to the end of this e-mail. Deadline for registration
	is Friday Feb. 9. Carpooling is available.

	The annual International Folkdance at Boulder Hot Springs, the Steam and Stomp, is a folkdancing
	tradition started over twenty years ago. It is an opportunity to dance, soak in the hot springs,
	and visit with folk dancers from across Montana (and beyond).  Dances will be taught by local 
	teachers during the days and Saturday night will feature our folkdance party. Our teaching program
	and party will include plenty of easy to intermediate dances so don't hesitate to come even if you
	have not been folkdancing recently.

	Friday night, a buffet breakfast will be available for an additional charge of $9.00.  You will
	need to make your own Saturday lunch arrangements.
