BLUEWATER WEEKEND 15- 17 July 2005

WOW – What a weekend we had!

It was great to meet up with old friends and meet many new people. Jessica Shaw was a great enthusiastic tutor and had us all wishing we had practiced a lot more before the event. Her rendition of a ‘Snail’ was awesome as well as the costume to go with it. Everyone enjoyed the Saturday night and had lots of fun with the “Animal” theme.
Thank you to Jessica, Malcolm and Heather for their tutoring. The variety of music was a challenging and informative experience.
