Attention all IDA square dance clubs!  Get your theme Basket Application Now!!


Dear Square or Round Dance Club,

Last year's basket raffle was a tremendous success. Each person who bid on the baskets had great fun looking at the contents of the wonderful creations and speculating which clever concept would be most appealing to own. Let's plan NOW to get involved in making your club a vital part of the October 17-19 2014 State Convention through this fun, team building project. Your club WILL make some money if your club donates a basket! What percentage of the intake you receive back will be determined by how much in demand your creation is.

Your club dancers probably have a GREAT idea for what would comprise a well unified them basket. Are your members into golf? Then you could put together a clever basket filled with golf balls, tees, a golf glove and a ball marker. What about cooking? Well you might build a basket around baking ingredients and cookie cutters of barbecue rubs and tongs. Do your members have great hairdos? You could gather gels, shampoos, brushes and hairpins. How about relaxing in the sun? A couple of paperback books, some sun lotion, a fan, and a cold drink cup might be just what someone would like for a lazy summer afternoon. Are your colleagues into games? Then how about a Scrabble cup, some Uno cards, a pair of dice, and a score pad and pencil?

These suggestions probably will trigger similar or even better ideas from your club members, so why not put together a thoughtfully designed basket for the October 2014 Indiana State Convention?

We know your dancers have great ideas and will probably exercise your creativity just because you are nice people, but we also know it is great fun to be part of a competition, one which you can easily win. Therefore, we are continuing the chance for your club to be a competitor. What's in it for your club besides just good will? It it the chance to reclaim some of the cost of the items you use to make up your basket!

Our plan is, once again, to give back to the designers of the most popular basket 1/2 of all the money received from raffle tickets sold on that basket. The other eleven clubs will receive 1/4 of total dollars received from raffle tickets sold on their baskets. Therefore, when we award the baskets to the raffle ticket holders on Saturday night, we will give away the most popular basket last and will ask someone from the designer club to come forward to receive the club's financial reward and, of course, audience applause. Money for each of the other club baskets will be distributed at the Ways and Means booth.
