18 couples from 6 countries danced the competition. 2 couples more
were announced but cancelled due to sickness. These couples were from
USA (Kevin St Laurent & Carla Heiney) and Norway.

of honour at the event. Other people present where Stevens Mitchel,
Janice Wilson, Eddie and Eva Janson, Rob and Diane van Harren, Kevin
St. Laurent & Carla Heiney and many other teachers from Herrang dance
An absolute full house! Every single ticket was sold out and a lot of
people, unfortunatelly, were not able to come in and see the
competition. An evening that started out with some nervousness but
came along nicely and ended in a good mood. The judges were doing a
good job so the competition was running very nicely.
Siomon Selmon was emce and he did a very nice job with is well known
sens of humour . The entire event was organized by Herräng Dance
Camp/The Rhythm Hot Shots but practically by Frida Segerdal and
details and practical issues as well as the Protocol by "yours
truly". The organization was much too small but it all worked out
well in the end.
We had during the day, prelim. and hope round with one audience who
paid a small entrance fee and during the evening a big audience who
paid a lot toghether with the fact that Nalen is THE Lindy place but
too small for an event like this which means that there were not
enought seats for the public so they were sitting everywhere on the
To my personal feeling an event this expensive needs better space so
at least a majority of the paying audience get a good seat while
following the competition.
Well, that's all for now.
