11 Bicoastal Contra Pete Campbell A1: Gypsy and swing

A significant percentage of beginners, so I went with an all-contra night, and made a number of last-moment program changes. "Easy Street" and "Slice of Life" went a lot beter than I expected. Next time I call "Diagonal Dilemma," I'm going to try replacing the final gypsy with a two-hand turn. Better timing/connection, and should open up easier into the next line of four down the hall.
