Bill and Shannon Butler gave swing dance lessons from 7:00 to 7:50. The dance floor was bigger because the food service was outside under a large tent.

About 550 people attended the dance. This is fewer than expected, despite the presence of about 20 Hamline students who attended the dance for the first time. Rain began around 7:10 p.m. and got heavy around 7:30, right about the time people might have been leaving for the dance. The hangar dance also competed with the "first Saturday swing dance" at the Tapestry Folkdance Center, which usually attracts the competition-level swing dance crowd int he Twin Cities.

We sold two CDs.
