Well, I thought I would be helping out with the Mazamas ICS Avalanche Beacon Practice up at Timberline, so I thought I would kill two birds with one stone. I would start by helping out for this climbing class field session and then spend the evening at Scandinavian Dancing with Norske Runddansere. They were having their annual Snow Ball at Mazama Lodge. Then I found out that the Avalanche Beacon Practice was taking place in town, so I settled for a weekend up at the Lodge.
It was fun to dress up once again in my traditional Swedish Folk Costume - the second time this month! Before the dancing started I got in touch with my creative side and helped decorate the Lodge. Grog was served, which brought back memories of drinking Gluewein during the holidays in Germany. The folks at Norske Runddansere are a good group to dance with, I got lots of friendly help with the various dances. I am especially encouraged with my progress with the Hambo.
