Sail Sets Club History

The Sail Sets formed out of an Advanced Class that began dancing in the fall of 1984.
The teacher and caller has always been Dottie Welch.
In 1984 she had just completed her first summer at Caller's College with Gloria Roth
and was ready to try her wings with a new club and simultaneously two squares of dancers were ready to learn Advanced.

The name "Sail Sets" was chosen because "A-1", the first Advanced program,
forms part of a clever sail boat design featured on the Club's badge, created by founding club member Bob Fowler.
