Rain Country Line Dancing
All Pilgrims Church (500 Broadway Ave E [enter on Republican], Seattle), 7:00–9:00 pm with lesson @ 7:30 pm
Lessons: Blow Me A Kiss / Instructor: Jim / DJ: Jim
We’re back! In person! Line Dancing! Vax required!
Big space, wooden dance floor! 5 minute walk from Capitol Hill light rail! (Seriously: if parking is an issue for you on Capitol Hill, park near a light rail station and take the train in!) No lesson this week, since we know some of you haven’t done much if any line dancing in over a year, so we will just catch you up with quick recaps of your faves. Vaxxed only — please bring your ID and either your proof of vaccination card or a photo on your phone. All info must be visible, name must match your ID, and you must be 2 weeks past your full vaccination shot date. (Rain Country will only retain your name and that you are properly vaxxed, to be used for admission to future RCDA events. Like the Pride Dance on Friday June 18.)

Stomptown Community Meeting
Online viua Zoom (from Portland), 7:00–8:00 pm
We’re moving quickly towards some sense of the Before Times, with our first all-vaccinated Partner Dance this past Friday! A warm welcome to old friends and new dancers alike!
The Stomptown Board is devoted to making sure the dancing environment feels safe, inclusive, and respectful. This includes safety and dignity issues like choice of leading or following, and respecting pronouns.
As part of the process of becoming a 501c(3) not-for-profit organization, Stomptown will be adopting a formal policy on Conduct and Safety. We have been waiting for dancers to return before starting this conversation, and with the return of our Partner Dance this seems like a good time.
We want to hear your opinion! Please let us know your thoughts on dignity, respect and safety issues in this survey: https://forms.gle/b3YssLKTCqfnuEnd7
We will hold an In-Person and Zoom meeting before our dance on June 18th to discuss the results and hear your opinions on what should or should not be included in our community standards. We’ll also have a Zoom-only meeting on June 23rd for those that can’t make it.

Border Riders Motorcycle Run — Pride Weekend
Lewis and Clark Trail State Campground (Dayton, WA — near Walla Walla), cost TBD
The club was there for a weekend a couple of years ago and the riding opportunities in the area are fantastic. Lewis and Clark Trail State Park is a 36-acre camping park with 1,333 feet of freshwater shoreline on the Touchet River. Like an oasis in the middle of the desert, this lovely forested park on the banks of the Touchet River refreshes visitors with its unusual vegetation and geology surrounding arid grassland. Rich in history, the park has interpretive displays with information about explorers Lewis and Clark and original area homesteaders. The campsite has restrooms and showers. Unlike many parts of Eastern Washington which are flat and straight, there are some interesting roads in the Palouse and Walla Walla hills. Campsite is 5.7 miles west of Dayton and 4.4 miles east of Waitsburg on Highway 12.
North West Cigar Social
Online via Zoom (from Portland), 3:00–5:00 pm

Seattle Men in Leather will be holding a picnic for our members (and their SML-eligible +1s), location and specifics to be announced later. (But expect a public park picnic shelter in south Seattle, with potluck, BBQ grill, and picnic games with a kink bent! Easy parking and good bus and light rail access.) (What’s that You noticed that this is scheduled for Pride Weekend? Yes, we noticed that, too! No better way to spend some of Pride weekend than with your leather club brothers!) And yes, we will be compliant with state and local COVID requirements at the time.
