There are Line Dance Lessons are scheduled at Electric Cowboys in Kennesaw; East Side Station in Snellville and June Shuman does have her classes at Hunter Park in Douglasville on WED nights. 

BIG NEWS!!!! Dancers in the West Georgia area. After we asked you dancers back in Jan, esp people 
in the area, if you would attend a regular dance, we have sealed the deal. Starting Saturday night, June 2nd, 
we will have our first "West Georgia Country Night" at Venue 1625 in Carrollton. This is an old VFW but 
has been beautifully remodeled. The main room can hold up to 500 people, has a HUGE dance floor,, prob
2/3rds the size of Electric Cowboys. We hope this will be a monthly event with some of the best country bands
in the area and the state. The music for the night will be MOSTLY 90's country, the HEY DAY of country dancing,
so plenty of songs to two step, swing, waltz and line dance too. We are still putting together the final details,
but we are aiming at doors opening at 7:30,, open dancing to DJ from 8 to 8:30 or 9,, then the band will play 3
sets with breaks up to about 12. There will be plenty of seating and a cash bar for your favorite drink. This
will be a smoke free event. Later on, if the need is there, we might add a buffet or something for people to come 
have dinner and dance all in one night. We'll have ADVANCE tickets, from solo tickets, to couples and group
discounts, advance tickets starting at $8 per person.  We even will offer discounts to larger groups so perfect for birthday parties, anniversaries or any other special occasion. This WONT be like going to a BAR, where the music is TOO loud where you can't talk. The music will be 95% country from the 90s, a few hits from early and today with maybe a touch of classic country and other, that fit a particular dance. This will be a great comfortable, safe night of dancing that any age can enjoy. 
Tickets are NOW ON SALE at . at the West Georgia Country Nights page. Advance tickets online start at just $8. ($12 at the door). We have tables that seat 8, next to the dance floor. Great for groups or parties. 
The first band that will play is South of Nashville. This band has quickly grown to be one of top country cover bands in Georgia. They are a two time finalist for band of the year in  the last two Georgia Country Awards. They have played at some of Georgia's largest venues such as Electric Cowboy,  & Crazy Bull. They recently were invited to play at the world famous Tootsies in Nashville, in late March. The lead singer, Stephen Cochran sounds JUST like Ronnie Dunn of Brooks & Dunn,, so we're sure you'll enjoy this band. So,, again, we hope you'll mark this on your calendar and be with us.

NOTE: We WILL add dance lessons but for opening night, we'll have open dancing starting not long after the doors 
open at 7:30!!! 


Dancers,,, this Saturday night, March 17th, The Owl Creek Band returns to 
Club 201 in Alpharetta. They will be playing a full night of 90's country with a touch of classic rock and 
blues. PLENTY of songs to two step, waltz, cha-cha, swing and line dance to all night long. 
Club 201 will have dance lessons at 7pm and then the band takes the stage at 8pm.

Line Dance Friends, 

We have now finalized the details for the Spring Jamboree.  The Flyer and registration form is attached so hopefully everyone can open it.  As you can see the cost is $12.00, necessary for the rise in cost of the venue.   We will HAVE to limit registration attendees to 180. so  it is with paid registration only that will assure dancers his/her spot.  We will allow an Instructor to submit a list of names with the check for the registration and then bring the individual registration forms with them on the day of the Jamboree.   Teaching of the dances will be on a first received basis.  so send in your choice along with the name of the music (if different from the dance) ASAP in order to get your first choice.  The order of teaching will be determined as we get closer to the Jamboree.

Look forward to hearing from you soon, any questions please call  404-580-7431, or rely to email

The Internal Revenue Service today warned taxpayers of a quickly growing scam involving erroneous tax refunds being deposited into their bank accounts. The IRS also offered a step-by-step explanation for how to return the funds and avoid being scammed.

Following up on a Security Summit alert issued Feb. 2, the IRS issued this additional warning about the new scheme after discovering more tax practitioners' computer files have been breached. In addition, the number of potential taxpayer victims jumped from a few hundred to several thousand in just days. The IRS Criminal Investigation division continues its investigation into the scope and breadth of this scheme.

These criminals have a new twist on an old scam. After stealing client data from tax professionals and filing fraudulent tax returns, these criminals use the taxpayers' real bank accounts for the deposit.

Thieves are then using various tactics to reclaim the refund from the taxpayers, and their versions of the scam may continue to evolve.

IRS-Impersonation Telephone Scams
A sophisticated phone scam targeting taxpayers, including recent immigrants, has been making the rounds throughout the country. Callers claim to be IRS employees, using fake names and bogus IRS identification badge numbers. They may know a lot about their targets, and they usually alter the caller ID to make it look like the IRS is calling. 

Victims are told they owe money to the IRS and it must be paid promptly through a gift card or wire transfer. Victims may be threatened with arrest, deportation or suspension of a business or driver's license. In many cases, the caller becomes hostile and insulting. Victims may be told they have a refund due to try to trick them into sharing private information. If the phone isn't answered, the scammers often leave an "urgent" callback request.
