I call for three clubs, two clubs in the Oklahoma City area, and one in Lawton, Oklahoma;
in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, the oldest continuously dancing square dance club in the world,
formed in 1937, and have called for them, as only their third paid caller, since September 1978. I also call for
FunTimers square dance club in Midwest City, Oklahoma and have called for them 20 years. They are the only
club, that I know of, that has had four (4) National Square Dance Convention General Chairmen as members!!
Three members of the NEC at one time!!! One of the member couples, now deceased,
have the only life size
f square dancers in the world. And, the third club is, the Star Promenaders, in
Lawton, Oklahoma. I teach beginner lesson regularly and do whatever I feel will help square dancing. I do these
things in addition to owning and managing a retail firearms store and I teach automotive technology, on a part
time basis, since I am a Certified Master Automobile Technician.
