Saturday, February 4, 2012: Carleton College Midwinter Ball 18th anniversary (19th performance) of our performances for the Carleton Dance - we first played there January 29, 1994; play 9:30-1:00 in the Great Hall; probably leave Roseville on the bus at 6:00 and pick up at Eagan around 6:45. (The bus got packed up in Roseville more quickly than anticipated and arrived about 7 minutes early in Eagan.) Note the change in starting time. The ending time remains the same. $1500, same as 2008, 2009, 2010, and 2011. Bus cost: $704. The bus got back to Eagan at 2:15 a.m. because of very speedy tear down and loading. They had cold cuts, veggies, chips, and water/pop/coffee in the Fireside Room, as in the past. They had an old upright piano for us, so we brought our own.
