Ed & Gail's Colvin Run Dance Events:
Ed & Gail are at last back with their full complement of weekly and weekend Colvin Run Dance events!
Although it does appear pandemic infections and hospitalizations seem to be subsiding, as promoters, our first priority remains insuring the safest dance experience for our attendees. As such, for the immediate future, attendance at all of our dance events will require confirmation of full Covid vaccination and the wearing of a mask.
We have been working to get as many as possible of our regular attendees on our list of vaccinated dancers in advance of our opening. If you have already sent us your vaccination confirmation, as many have, that's great! You’re all set to attend our Colvin Run dances.
But if you have not as yet sent us your vaccination confirmation now is the time and it is simple. All you need do is attach a photocopy of your Covid-19 vaccination card to your email to EdCottrell@macp.org . You can cover up any personal information such as your birthdate- We just need your name and date(s) of vaccination. We retain no copy of your vaccination card and never share any of our dancer lists. Once you're signed up you are good to go for all of our dances.
If you prefer, you may present your vaccination certificate for validation at the time of your initial attendance at one of our events. But we suggest you arrive early so as to allow for additional time for processing
Here are all the specific details on our dances:
