El Camino Reelers: Square Dancing in Silicon Valley for the LGBTQ Community and friends

ECR Board Elections

ECR held Board Elections in February using a new online system for voting. Congratulations to our new board member, Michael Golden, and returning members David Morandi and Ed Wilson.

The proposal to update ECR's club Bylaws to allow online voting in the future was approved unanimously.

The Board extends its deepest appreciation to departing Board member Allan Hurst, who is stepping down to focus on other activities including the upcoming two IAGSDC Conventions. Oliver Vogel will be replacing Allan as club Secretary.

COVID-19 Update (4/1/21)

Effective March 24, Santa Clara County and some other Bay Area counties have been moved to the less-restrictive Orange Tier, lifting some local activity-specific health directives. However, Santa Clara County continues to experience high rates of COVID-19 transmission, and the danger COVID-19 poses to our community has not subsided. Social distancing precautions are still in place.

Covid-19 vaccines are now available for California residents 50 and over. It may still be several months before vaccine doses can be made available to most club members.

County COVID-19 info

St. Andrews Church and the Billy DeFrank Center have still not reopened.

Once the Board feels comfortable recommending that the club resume dancing, we will send out a survey/poll to ECR members to ask what they would be comfortable doing and when.


WE'LL BE BACK!

EL CAMINO REELERS is a modern Western Square Dance club, formed by lesbians and gay men in order to meet people, have fun, and learn to square dance. We dance to live callers using the Callerlab Mainstream, Plus, and Advanced programs.

LEARN TO SQUARE DANCE! It's a great way to meet active, open-minded, intelligent, and sometimes very silly people. We would love to welcome you to our club. Come to one of our monthly no experience required Fun Nights, or send a note to information@reelers.org and let us know you're interested.
