Nashville 2019
We have begun our plans for a trip to Nashville in the fall of 2019. I’ve been looking at hotels and activities and we already have a list of 40 interested, so make sure you get on that list, because this trip will be limited. As with most of our trips it will be as all inclusive as we can make it. Air, Hotel, Transfers, Activities, some Meals, and Gratuities where necessary. We hope you can join us.

As always we have some fun things coming up and we hope you join us, but we like to know if you’re coming so if you’re thinking about coming along to one of our dances be sure and let us know so we don’t leave you out of any extra things we might plan.

We’ve got a website! It’s a work in progress right now, but you can check it out at

So It Looks Like Spring…we hope



So it’s 2017 and we are up and running, looking forward to a great spring season. (I say spring because I am hopeful the snow is gone – and I like the rain.) We’ve got some great stuff coming up, so join us somewhere!

If you are looking for some DBD Plus Dancing thing about coming out to Royal Swingers on a Friday Evening, and don’t forget the covered parking – particularly on a day like today.

If any of you were considering our Canada/New England Cruise for this September now is the time to book. The ship is almost full, but I do still have a few inside cabins in my block that are a really good price. Let me know if you are interested.

September 10-24, 2017 – Canada/New England Cruise



Our next big group trip will be a 14 Day Cruise through New England and Eastern Canada on Celebrity Cruise Lines.

The Celebrity Summit is a perfect sized ship for a group, with just slightly over 2000 passengers, it is easy to run into your travel companions for a visit, or a drink, or a meal.

We have confirmed dancing space and times for our sea days. We will be dancing in the mornings in the beautiful Revelations Lounge at the very front of the ship. It has a lsummitarge dance floor that will be just perfect for us. Think about joining us!

We will be having the 6:00 dinner seating with Round Robin seating (which means you can sit at different tables with different members of our group each night, you won’t be restricted to the same table and the same people). Dining like this is a great way to get to know everyone you are travelling with.

Remember the sooner you book, the better the pricing – this cruise only goes 3 times in the fall and fills up quickly – book sooner rather than later for the best pricing, the best choice in cabins. Deposit is 100% refundable until June 2017.

Beautiful spots to put your RV in the meadow with water and electricity available. Cle Elum and the hotels and motels are just a few miles down the road. This is our 30th year calling at Circle 8 Ranch and Steve is looking forward to sharing the program with our good friend Steve Noseck.
