A few members of the team made the trek to Fontana for the annual Fontana Clogging Jamboree. The weekend was jam packed with clogging routines, both new and old. It was a great opportunity to meet fellow cloggers and bond with the other team members.

Our annual trip to the Blue Ridge Parkway took place on the weekend of May 6-7, 2017. The group stayed at a cabin near Lake James, near Marion, NC - our home base for the weekend.
On that Saturday, team members took the scenic route up to the Little Switzerland area, and met at the famous Orchard at Altapass. The afternoon was spent listening to two bluegrass bands, and the team danced two routines for the visitors, in addition to spending lots of time waltzing and two-stepping.

The group took 6 couples, and were very well received by all those in attendance. The group performed a total of eight routines, and even had time to invite the crowd onto the stage to join us for a square dance.

Director Pearlie Reynolds invited HBC to attend the team's annual Christmas party in Fieldale, Virginia. Music was provided by a wonderful old-time band - The Willow Creek Drifters. The building has a wonderful wooden dance floor, and we all enjoyed a covered dish supper. There were many dancers attending and the host team danced a few exhibition routines.
