5 Dance Events in 5 days, beginning and ending at the Concord Scout House -- with all of NEFFA in between.
For 2011, recruits' tour of duty begins at the Thursday, April 14th Scout House Dance, will continue with Friday through Sunday at the NEFFA Festival and conclude back at the Scout House Monday Contras on April 18th 2011. (For this year only, you may optionally meet the Sunday dance requirement via the BIDA dance in Cambridge.)
For recruits that complete the series, their efforts will be recognized in an awards ceremony at the Monday night dance after NEFFA at the Concord Scout House. Plus they'll get:
Get the word out - mention it to your friends, print out some of our flyers and take them to your area dances, etc.
Send them to contrachallenge+2011((AT))gmail((DOT))com and we'll build a FAQ list here to share.
John Wasser, Robin Humes and Don VeinoWe gratefully acknowledge the heritage and motivation provided by the Iron Dancer series, which we completed in the spring of 2008 and inspired us in creating the Contra Challenge. We hope you crazy few go on to achieve recognition from both groups!
