The Utah Scottish Association's TartanBall
This year's event was held in SLC at the Joseph Smith Memorial building (formerly the Hotel Utah), luckily covered parking so we didn't get wet in the rain. Dinner was very good but not really very "Scottish"...no haggis alas...and the band was quite good playing mostly jazzy versions of standards to dance to.
DH H and I dated by dancing...no movies for us, LOL... and he is a great dancer. We did a lot of foxtrot and no waltzing but got complimented on our dancing as old as we are now. Later in the evening they through in some Scottish party dances and H and I enjoyed and even a group dance which allowed ladies without dancing partners to enjoy too. We had some fine table mates from Clan McGreggor and got to eat with the band! Now back in the day we ladies would have been swooning LOL
WE had a good time and managed to get home before 10 pm as you can see were aren't exactly party animals! LOL
