Provisional Program

Here's a general overview of what to expect:


Registration will open at 4:00 on Friday. Happy Hour will begin at 5:00ish with beer, wine, soda, and snacks. Dinner will be served by your Peel-Off Committee after Happy Hour, and dancing will be in the grassy knoll after dinner. Most dancers will wind down with more hospitality, and visits to the various facilities offered by Canyon Club... Gay bars are a short distance from the venue for those that want to venture out!


On Saturday, there will be coffee and breakfast provided by Canyon Club in the lobby when they open (check with the front desk for times). Dancing will be from 9:30 - 12:30ish followed by lunch served by the Peel Off Committee. Dancing will resume with Pool Tips at 3:00. Refreshments will be served at 4:30ish with another dinner prepared by The Committee following Happy Hour. At 7:00, dancing will continue OFF-SITE (clothing required) as we join the Windmill Twirlers with our caller and others from 7:00pm to 9:30pmish.

After the dance, dessert will be served at Canyon Club, or you can make your own way to clubs and other venues in Palm Springs.


Sunday morning will be a repeat of the Saturday schedule until 12:00, when we'll have our farewell tip followed by lunch served by The Committee. (Please note that checkout is at noon so please plan accordingly with the hotel). You'll be able to stay and enjoy the Canyon Club facilities until 5:00 PM if you're not booked to stay Sunday night. Many choose to stay on at Canyon Club for additional days to enjoy the atmosphere there, and to sample the delights that Palm Springs has to offer. Ask Canyon Club for rates for additional nights!

NOTE:  This event sells out early. To register after September 30th, call or e-mail us to check availability (see contact information below).
