For the organizers of Fall Has Sprung, the 12-hour dance in Grass Valley: Dan Skeahan, Eric Engels, Joyce Miller, and Lisa Frankel. You also get to see four of your neighbors each time through.

Some have suggested, in the B1, changing the pull by left to an allemande left 1/2. I prefer the timing with a pull by, but the allemande left 1/2 may be better in a crowded hall.
