Club Bolo present the Outgames / IAGLCWDC Miami in 2017!
2017 will be magnificent with two events in one: the World Outgames and the IAGLCWDC convention. All of you, members and friends of Club Bolo, are invited!
The 24th annual convention of the International Association of Gay and Lesbian Country and Western Dance Clubs (IAGLCWDC) will be unlike any other. The convention and hoedown will be held in combination with the World Outgames Miami 2017. The Outgames is taking care of registration, arrangements for the hotel and venues for dancing while IAGLCWDC will take care of dance workshops, socials, evening parties, dance competition and all the great stuff that makes up a convention. The cost of registration is a little more than past years but it also includes so much more. When you register for the convention you will actually be registering for the Outgames and registration will include: all of the IAGLCWDC dances, social events and workshops; the Outgames Opening and Closing Ceremonies; shuttle of the Outgames Village where there will be entertainment, exhibitors, food vendors, etc.; free entrance to the Dancesport events (they are at the same hotel as the convention); discounts to other sporting events and merchandise, a souvenir book and bag, and an Outgames T-Shirt. The IAGLCWDC convention and the Dancesport Outgames event will be hosted at the Doubletree Hotel by the Hilton Miami Airport & Convention Centre.
The time is now to register! Until August 30, 2016 the cost to register is only $150.00 US. Past this date, the cost will begin to increase until it finally reaches the full rate of $250.00 US. It is also recommended that you reserve a hotel room now as these can go quickly.
For more information, or to register, go to the IAGLCWDC convention page at https://outhoedown.com/2017/miami/. You will need to follow the instructions this page in order to ensure you are registered for the convention.
The dates of the convention are May 25 to 29, 2017 and the Outgames are May 26 to June 4, 2017.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact Alan Gaudet, President, Club Bolo at firstname.lastname@example.org or at the club on Friday night or during the community day. As well, a member from the World Outgames will be present Friday night at Club Bolo and the following day at the community day.
Meeting on Friday, August 12 at 7 PM for the
IAGLCWDC / Outgames / 2017 Show
Further to the above article, we will meet to talk with people interested in participating in Miami in 2017, either as a rgular participant, or as a competitor or as a member of the demo group who will present a show led by Guy and Chantal.
We will also address the budget required (air, hotel and registration, not to mention the costume for those who will be involved in the demo group). For now, the total cost of a stay of 5 days and 4 nights is around $ 1500. This amount may get lower: Club Bolo is working with Équipe Montreal to negotiate group rates on flights to Miami and find sponsors. Fundraisers could also be a means. Finally, thanks to the Tyler Goolsby scholarship, people with limited financial means can apply for a free registration.
The meeting will be held on Friday August 12 at 7 PM. If you are interested but can not be present, please send an email to email@example.com before August 12.
If you plan on attending the convention, regardless of your intention to be in the performing group or not, you should register now as the $150 US fee expires August 30, 2016.
