What's Free?

This blog is going nowhere fast. Of course we cannot blame anyone. There is no dancing on Oahu and all we can do is talk about it and try to do something else. We are learning a few things and developing our own standards. We have accepted that outdoors is safer than indoors. Tests, masks, respect for social distance and hand washing are basic rules for any new groups forming. Trumpanzees Rallies are to be avoided at all costs.

“Hope is not about proving anything. It's about choosing to believe this one thing, that love is bigger than any grim, bleak shit anyone can throw at us.”

 
However, we do have some very good groups that have existed for ages. And some new ones in the process of starting up. They know what they have to do to stay safe. It should be starting to happen in a couple months. How about dancing in the park? And we definitely do not need huge crowds. We must be small groups to respect social distance. Every one bring a folding chair to sit on and spaced seven feet apart. Fortunately we have some good DJs that can help us out and we have some good thinking people on Oahu.

Shaky

Half the month gone and nothing. Few remarks and no questions. Of course there is still no dancing so we must be patient. The basic offers of this blog are still good. As we get groups, we will get suggestions and make any necessary changes for the good of the reader/dancers. The biggest turn off at present is the word "free." And we cannot blame our reader/dancers. You gotta be careful if it says free.

It will be a work in process and the Panel space will be free, and only one to a group. No Trumpanzees accepted. All should have some kind of mask requirement and respect for social distance. Most people understand what we are up against. All the panels will be the same size, 435 pixels wide and 475 pixels long. I can make a trial poster for you, with minimum info and you can work on your own for later submission, if you wish. It will probably be updated once a week.

We hope for the best for all, stay safe and we shall dance again.
