The next dance practice will be on Wed., Sept. 24th at 6:30 PM at Belvedere Castle in Central Park.
Everyone is welcome to join us for practice; no prior dance experience required… Practices are held in street clothes, as many are traveling after work.
We’ll meet in the grassy area of Shakespeare’s garden if it is open. If you follow the "From the West Side" directions (please note that the tree mentioned in the directions shortly after you enter the park is no longer there, so take the path on the right) http://northpass.eastkingdom.org/DancePractice_CentralPark.html the grassy area is the "little clearing" before you reach the castle steps. We are typically near the bench on the left side. Once it gets dark OR if the grass isn’t open we move atop the castle. If you cannot find us, please phone (sometimes there is traffic, sometimes we are on the castle if the grass is soggy, etc.).
To find us atop the castle… If you are coming from the west side, once you climb the steps you can find us congregated by the wall slightly to the left of the little covered alcove in front of you. From the east side once you go up the steps at the back of the castle we’ll be to the left near the wall before the little covered alcove.
If it’s raining we meet under the overhang up top. If severe weather is in the forecast please check your email or call us on dance practice days; we’ll make a decision by 2 PM if we’re going to cancel practice.
Weather permitting weekly Wednesday practices will continue.
For more info or questions, please email
I came home from Barleycorn with a nasty respiratory infection. Since I’ll be medicated for the next 4 days and feel unable to do anything (even breathing is difficult today), I feel that discretion is the better part of valor and so am cancelling my Sunday cooking class. While I will probably not be infectious by then, I will probably still not be fully functional and will definitely not have found my dining room table (my main work surface for such classes) by then.
The “makeup date” is October 5. To all who have said they are coming, please let me know if you can make the new date.
In addition to our normal archery practice next Sunday August 31st, since it is Labor Day weekend, we will be having a BBQ.
I’ll be bringing a small BBQ and the charcoal, so bring something to throw on the grill, or some other food/drink.
I will be bringing a table to in addition to trying to commandeer a picnic bench or two, But expect seating to be limited so bring chairs if you have them.
Also a back up tables or two wouldn’t hurt.
As always we will be in Willowbrook Park in Staten Island.
The Address is 2 Eton Pl. Eton Place is off Richmond Ave. one block south of Victory Blvd.
Once in the park go all the way to the back of the parking lot. The range will be on your left and the picnic area will be on the right.
The park is accessible from public transit via the S44, S59 and S62. Also the X10 from Manhattan.
We will be starting around 1pm. Loaner equipment is available and anyone is welcome to shoot..
