My first experience with "winging it" program-wise at an ECD dance. I was a last-minute sub for the regular caller who was sick, in this case last-minute being ninety minutes before the dance. After Subway dinner and travel time, that left half an hour for programming the first half, and the break was absorbed with studying Newcastle, as I'd never danced or called it before. (Thanks to Ellie for bringing instructions and music.) I took my time with Newcastle, but dancers seemed to get it, partly thanks to some having done it the previous month at some LA ball review sessions.

A number of pre-programmed apprentice caller slots made the load easier.
