Rick Hawes brought his vest with all of his various paraphernalia. I came after the vest era of the Ramblers (sadly), so I loved seeing this. Aside from being a pillar of the Ramblers, Rick has been very active in the IAGSDC (The International Association of Gay Square Dancing Clubs, of course)
He’s currently serving as a caller for our lessons, but has served in possibly every role there is to serve in for the Ramblers.
He also has been recording callers at dances for decades, which means sometimes we get to dance to callers from the eighties and nineties when the gay square dancers were fleet of foot and the calls came fast and furious.
