Clayton Eighters - guidelines
Toward the start of the square dance boom in the St. Louis area, there were three clubs that sponsored Lloyd Shaw's visit: The Lancers, Boots and Belles, and The Promenaders. However, at the same time, other groups such as the Clayton Eighters formed. What was different? The Clayton Eighters was limited in size-- four squares total--and had as its stated goal "to provide a High Level of Good Fellowship among High Level square dancers." Keep in mind that this was two decades before CALLERLAB's start and even more before Advanced and Challenge programs were officially recognized.
