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

General Information

Membership Meeting

ECR is holding its annual Membership Meeting on Tuesday, February 21, 2023. The club's by-laws require that the Board hold a meeting at least once per year to present financial information and other general information to the members of the club.

Charter and Bylaws

The most recent revision to the ECR Charter and Bylaws was proposed by the ECR Board in June 2022 and approved by club members via a special election on September 9, 2022.

  1. The amendment states that dancers who have completed SSD-level instruction are eligible for full ECR membership. This change reflects the trend within the IAGSDC community to replace Mainstream with SSD (Social Square Dancing) as the first level of the square dance curriculum.

Club e-mail list

El Camino Reelers has an e-mail list for club members and friends who want to stay informed about club activities. ECR-talk is a forum for announcements, general club information, notices about other clubs' events, and occasional topical discussions.

All ECR members are automatically enrolled in ECR-talk. Non-members may ask to be added to the list. Any ECR-talk member may send messages to the entire list.

ECR-talk is generally very low traffic and is usually the best way to stay informed.

October 2021:

Due to mail delivery issues with our old service provider, we are moving the ECR-talk mailing list to Google Groups. We are still working out the process for managing the list. If you would like to be added to the list, or if you have a new email address, or if you would like to be removed from the list, please send a message to information@reelers.org and let us know.

Club Roster

ECR distributes a membership roster in PDF format for the use of members (full members and students) only. People are only listed on the roster if they choose to be, and can opt out of showing specific information (e.g., home address) by indicating this on the registration form or by sending a request to information@reelers.org.

Rosters are distributed by email in January to paid-up members, and a current one can be requested at any time by contacting information@reelers.org.

The roster is not stored on the ECR web server, so it is not visible to search engines. Please respect our members' privacy and don't re-post it on other sites.

The club also encourages members to post profiles on the IAGSDC website . This allows our members to post photos of themselves if they wish, and indicate if they belong to more than one club. You will need to register with IAGDSC to see the roster. If you have ever attended an IAGSDC Convention, you probably have at least a skeleton IAGSDC profile already.
