Flashback on the latest Pride weekend
We had a great weekend! We had a lot of participants on Thursday evening at Parc Émilie Gamelin, braved the rain on Saturday (many people stopped at our booth) and we survived a paradeon Sunday, that was, say ... a little chaotic. We adapted!
Thank you to everyone who took part, taught, organized, volunteered during this intensive weekend. We also thank the Royal Bank (350 Ste Catherine W) which provided us with water :-!
Club Bolo at the 2017 Outgames / IAGLCWDC in Miami
2017 will be magnificent with two events in one: the World Outgames and the IAGLCWDC convention. All of you, members and friends of Club Bolo, are invited!
The 24th annual convention of the International Association of Gay and Lesbian Country and Western Dance Clubs (IAGLCWDC) will be unlike any other. The convention and hoedown will be held in combination with the World Outgames Miami 2017. The Outgames is taking care of registration, arrangements for the hotel and venues for dancing while IAGLCWDC will take care of dance workshops, socials, evening parties, dance competition and all the great stuff that makes up a convention.
The dates of the convention are May 25 to 29, 2017 and the Outgames are May 26 to June 4, 2017.
The cost of registration is a little more than past years but it also includes so much more. When you register for the convention you will actually be registering for the Outgames and registration will include: all of the IAGLCWDC dances, social events and workshops; the Outgames Opening and Closing Ceremonies; shuttle of the Outgames Village where there will be entertainment, exhibitors, food vendors, etc.; free entrance to the Dancesport events (they are at the same hotel as the convention); discounts to other sporting events and merchandise, a souvenir book and bag, and an Outgames T-Shirt.
The IAGLCWDC convention and the Dancesport Outgames event will be hosted at the Doubletree Hotel by the Hilton Miami Airport & Convention Centre.
As for the budget required (air, hotel and registration, eating expenses excluded), fFor now, the total cost of a stay of 5 days and 4 nights is around $ 1500. This amount may get lower: Club Bolo is working with Équipe Montreal to negotiate group rates on flights to Miami and find sponsors. Fundraisers could also be a means. Finally, thanks to the Tyler Goolsbyscholarship, people with limited financial means can apply for a free registration.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact Alan Gaudet, President, Club Bolo at email@example.com
The time is now to register! Until August 30, 2016 the cost to register is only $150.00 US (no need for you to register as a competitor yet, the $75 cost won't increase). Past this date, the cost will begin to increase until it finally reaches the full rate of $250.00 US. It is also recommended that you reserve a hotel room now as these can go quickly (no charge, cancellation is possible up until April).
For more information, or to register, go to the IAGLCWDC convention page at https://outhoedown.com/2017/miami/. You will need to follow the instructions this page in order to ensure you are registered for the convention.
In 2016, 3 intensive rehearsals are scheduled on Saturdays, morning and afternoon: on September 17, October 15, and November 26. More details will be provided on September 17. If by then you have questions, please contact Chantal (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Guy (email@example.com)
