Location: Toronto, ON, Canada

Started: 1987

History: Triangle Squares was formed in 1987 and accepted as a member of the IAGSDC
at the Scottsdale convention in 1988, which only two of our dancers attended.

The first fly-in was March 4-7, 1988, with about four squares of dancers in attendance.
The callers were Joe Uebelacker and Anne Uebelacker.

On 22 May, 1990, there was a special Steering Committee meeting to decide details
about the next fly-in, which began with a Club Dance on Thursday, 7 June, 1990,
and then continued on Friday, 8 June with an Advanced Workshop
on the Saturday and Brunch on the Sunday. We danced on Friday
at St. Luke's (at Sherbourne & Carlton Streets) and then on Saturday at the 519.

In 1991, the Fly-In Early Bird dance was on Thursday, April 4,
with Joe Uebelacker calling. Then on Friday, Tim Crawford called
at St. Luke's, followed by a Saturday afternoon dance with Joe Uebelacker
and a Sunday afternoon dance with Tim.

In 1992, we held the Fly-In the second (!) weekend after the Victoria Day weekend,
so it was the weekend after the Memorial Day weekend.
The Trail-In dance was on Thursday, May 28.

Then in 1993, we settled on the Memorial Day weekend
as the traditional time for our Fly-In, which was that year May 28 - 30.
Holding it on the Memorial Day weekend makes it more possible for dancers
from the U.S. to come to Toronto.

Triangle Squares celebrated its 25th year, and held its 25th fly-in,
in May 2012.
