From the Program Book of the 10th IAGSDC Convention, held in Seattle, WA in 1993:
Chinook City Dancers started in February 1991. It began with a very successful workshop weekend where we had Anne Uebelacker calling. That year we were lucky enough to have five squares of beginners. Our numbers have unfortunately dwindled and we now have only 10 members taking the plus level. We do however have two full squares of beginners this year.
We dance weekly at Trax, a local bar, as this helps us keep the cost down. We have had the same straight couple (Jerry and Joan) calling for us since we started.
Membership is about 26. We do have several straight ladies that come out and square angel for us. The regular square dance community isn't sure how to take us but we persist and continue to take part in the jamborees.
