26JUN17 – TIME (ing) IS MONEY

Don’t you hate being late for something and ending up and paying more than you had to?
Moi aussi.
This is to remind tous le monde that the EB deadline to register for Montreal Westie Fest is coming up fast – like this weekend fast.

Get your ticket by **Friday, June 30th** at to take advantage of the best weekend pass rates available.

Want to sit with your Toronto Westie friends?  Register online first, then let Joanna Swanson know – and join the Toronto ROCKS! Montreal Westie Fest Facebook Event for updates on ride and room-shares.

The event itself takes place October 13-15, at a new hotel: the Marriott Airport In-Terminal (right at Dorval airport).  If you’re making air or train transportation plans and/or booking your hotel room remember that there will be a party on Sunday night. 

Et bien sur there will be a Saturday night Poutine Party 😊


A few of us will be bringing back some *sweet* West Coast Swing dance dust from the West Coast for this Tuesday’s Flash Mob Kick-off Party.  Facebook Event or please see the calendar.
Looking forward to seeing everyone in their “island” apparel 😉

Have you booked your hotel room?
Have you lined up your Strictly Partner?
Are you doing a Pro-Am?  Or getting a Private Lesson with one of the visiting Pros?
Have you registered for the three-hour “Centensive” Thursday night with Arjay?
Please remember that Shelley’s regular Sunday Night West Coast Swing intermediate drop-in class and dance will be taking place at the event hotel (the Sheraton Airport Hotel and Conference Centre), that weekend.
This is a not-to-be-missed event for every West Coast Swing dancer in Toronto.  Especially after attending such a warm and welcoming event in Vancouver this past weekend (Sweet Side of Swing Northwest) I can’t wait to welcome visitors to our city/our event!!
