    Anybody have any idea if they'd run a semi or straight final with eight couples? And how about if they'd run quarters or semis with 13 couples?

    Is this for bronze Standard? I once had a similar earlier morning Viennese Waltz experience at Hotlanta.

    . . . as if you didn't have enough incentive already to achieve Gold!

    We decided that I will dance Tuesday AND Saturday... Now I will have to fly in a few hours before I dance.... Wish me luck... I also have to dance at 9:00am on Saturday. I am not a morning girl at all..

    For pro-am, the organizers try to give them the most bang for their buck. I usually see semis when there are 8 couples, and quarters with 13.
    Good luck. I'll be there, of course :)

    Thanks for the info. DJ...bang for the buck is good...still being able to stand after you've danced is probably better - dang! *grin*

    Good luck to you also!!
