Chairman's Award Winners

The Chairman Award is given every year to a couple who have spent many years promoting and doing everything they can to enhance the square and round dance activity.  When the General Chairman comes from the Indiana Dancers Association, the award is given to an IDLA member.  When the General Chairman comes from the Indiana Dance Leaders Association, the award is given to an IDA member.  This quickly becomes the most challenging duty of the general chair.

The 2014 Chairman's Award Winners started square dancing in the early 1970ís and danced for a few years in their own separate club.  They met in the early 1980;s and started dancing again and became active in the Indy B&B club where they held many offices more than once.

In 1999 they were Central Area Treasurer thru 2000.

In 2000 they were Central Area Directors and are currently in that position.

In 2001 they became Central Area Chairman and are currently in that position now.

In 2002 they were the Chairman for the New Dancersí Roundup along with the years 2013 and 2014.

In 2005 they were appointed to the Indiana Square and Round Dance Convention Board and were on the Board thru 2011 and were Registration and Housing Chairman.

In 2011 Chuck McConnell became Central Area Vice-Chairman and is currently in that position.

In 2012 Chuck and Lois became State Vice-President of IDA and held that position for 1 year.

In 2013 they were elected as State President of IDA and are currently holding that position now.

Competition Winners

The square dance competition is held every year on Saturday and dancers get to showcase their skills in front of a great crowd.  The competition is just for fun, but does challenge even the best dancer. All calls come from the basic/mainstream list and each square is given the proper time to complete each call. Below are the 1st and 2nd place winners for 2014.
