|Put on the fan, it's humid|
The wind was down but the humidity was high. I had a bit of a headache all day because of the high humidity.
We started the day out by going to Peppermint Palace for Bronc Wise's C1 Workshop. We had eight and a half squares. Every week there are more and more people showing up. Bronc went over Chain Reaction and Concentric Concepts. He put us in all different positions for the Chain Reaction. Some positions were very confusing, Bronc had to go over these positions many times. The Concentric Concepts can be confusing because the center two couples do the call normally but the outer two couples have to do the move with each other. At times the outer two couples either have to walk backwards or forward to get into a line or wave, very confusing. When they're tagging the line they have to get in front of the center two couples. Bronc did a super job of teaching the concepts of both Chain Reaction and Concentric.
We had an hour for lunch before going to our afternoon dance. We stopped at Wendy's and shared a Spicy Buffalo Salad. We like going to Wendy's for salads because they have five different salads to chose from. It was delicious.
At 1:00 we were back on the floor at Pharr South to dance A2 with Darryl Lipscomb. We had exactly five squares. Our friends Gary, Sharon, Mary and Linda just arrived yesterday and are going to be here a month. Darryl introduced the group to different Counter Rotates. The dancers were struggling to see the concept because in the A2 level you only do one concept. When you get into the C1 level you're introduced to all the other Counter Rotates. When we were in the square we could help the dancers if needed. Darryl did a great job.
By the time we finished doing two dances we're tired and all we want to do is go home and relax.
In the evening we went to see Tom Wurth at Bluebonnet RV Park. Tom Wurth performs Country, Gospel, Blues and Rock. He was raised in NW Iowa and lives in Nashville. He is a one man entertainer and is very enthusiastic. He sings a lot of songs the audience knows and encourages the audience to participate. At intermission the park served cake and a cup of coffee for a dollar. The park also sold ice cream bars and sodas. We had a very fun evening with Tom Wurth.
