A dismally low attendance night. Total attendence was 15 people, with no more than 12 out on the dance floor at any time.

I learned something with triplets. For contra dancers, best to call the positionally, rather than ones/twos/threes. Otherwise, if you say at the beginning of the dance "ones swing facing down", the couple in second place who were just ones will think they're ones till they reach the bottom of the set.
