From the Program Book of the 24th IAGSDC Convention, held in Denver, CO in 2007:
Bear has been the club caller for the host club, the Rocky Mountain Rainbeaus, for many years and is a beloved institution within the club as well as within his own club "Plus.com". His calling is joyful and lively with a jovial sense of humor. He is an inductee to the Denver Area Square Dance Council Square Dance Caller's Hall of Fame, member of Callerlab, and was vice-chair of the 53rd Square Dance Program Nationals in Denver, Colorado in 2004.
