Tom Wills writes: I will plan on opening the gate by 1 p.m. and will be at the club so that if any dancers wish to come down early and enjoy our house and grounds they may do so. We can light up the gas grill if they wish to have a picnic before the dance or there are charcoal grills if they bring their own charcoal.  Also, Mike Fulton and I plan on having our boats in the water so that we can take those interested in a ride out for a sail.
