HUSTLE DANCE CLUB NEWS LETTER April 1997 I reviewed, in a previous newsletter, the Hustle USA dance competition. In it I mentioned as part of the Friday night entertainment, Donna Boyle and her Performance team. Well I was in error. It actually was Kim Vanaman, from Massachusetts, who choreographed and performed that night, my apologies to Kim for that goof up. Kim and her dance partner Bobby Concepcion also took First place in the Jack-N-Jill Hustle Contest at Hustle USA. I would like to thank, Tom Robertson who provided me with the correct information and it was nice to finally meet him at our Tuesday night Hustle dance at the Grand Palace. Tom and his partner, Jannett Axelrod also took Third place in the same Jack-N-Jill Hustle contest. In the same news letter I mentioned some people who were attending the competition who were supposedly from the Los Angeles Area, well guess what I was wrong again, they were from San Luis Obispo California, My apologies to Jamya Newland and Stephen Hicks. Any place south of Gilroy is L.A. to me. Congratulations to Hustle Club Members Peggy and James Religa for celebrating 15 years of marital Bliss March 15, 1997, Also I mentioned my friend Tulsa Jarvis, and her engagement to a long time friend but I didn't mention who! Well his name is Rich Ramerez, a high school sweet heart who she re-met a their __th high school reunion. They will be moving to Vancouver, Washington in May of this year. And those of you who know Tulsa might want to party with us Saturday night, May 10th at The Starlite Ballroom Hustle night. Also Happy Birthday to David Sarul, of Hustle USA, for his __th Birthday, April 10th, 1997. You'll have to multiply all you fingers a toes by two and add just a bit more, to fill in the blank.
