THIS WEEKEND!! 
SNELLVILLE GA:

The next Saturday night dance at Eastside Station will be on Saturday, May 11th.  Please come join us for beginner dances. Ruth Ellen will be teaching three dances and lead many others on the floor. It's a great night to dance, dine and drink; meet new people; and hang with old friends. I'll have something fun and new to add.

-----------------------------------------------
McDonough GA

This Saturday is the monthly Moose Lodge line dance event in McDonough.  This monthly event is NORMALLY held on the second Saturday of each month from 7 PM to 10 PM….. 
Cost is now $7!!  (Exact change is appreciated).

NOTE:  The Moose Lodge has a polished concrete floor, so wear shoes accordingly as it does not slide like a wood one does but sure is better than vinyl tile.  Dancers "Foot Tubes" are available for purchase from Tommy and Lynn Bailey at the MOOSE.  

Lynn Bailey runs a list at the front, so it is your opportunity to request old and favorite ones, (bring the music if you have it just in case). 

The dance area is SMOKE FREE.   There is a bar and you can purchase drinks at the Moose.

The Henry County Moose Lodge is located just off Georgia 155, west of I-75. For those wanting to look it up on Map Quest or Google Map or put it in your GPS, the technical address is:
91 Hunter Chase
McDonough, Georgia 30253

Take either I-675 or I-75 south of I-285 to the 5th exit below where 675 and 75 merge.  The Exit on I-75 is 216 which is Georgia Route 155.  This is the southern of the McDonough exits. At the bottom of the ramp, turn right toward Griffin, (Ga-155 south).   There will be a Quality (formerly Holiday) Inn on your right as you come off I-75.

Follow Ga-155 for about a mile and turn RIGHT into the entrance to the "Hunters' Run" subdivision on your right. You MUST turn into the subdivision entrance street to get to the driveway for the Moose Lodge. The Lodge drive does not connect directly to Ga-155.

Once inside, follow the hall around to the right to the rear of the building for their ballroom. Come on down and give it a shot...

If you are coming from the Loganville - Lawrenceville or Grayson area, get on Georgia 20 going south and follow this through Conyers, Magnet, and into McDonough.  Once in McDonough where Ga-20 goes right, (toward the square) you keep going straight so watch the signs and stay on Ga-155 south.  This will circle around and once you go under I-75, you will see the Quality Inn on your right and the directions above will apply.

PLEASE checks the classes and clubs that are listed in the area where you live and let Stacy know by filling out the little form whether there should be changes, deletions, or corrections.  Please really use this link when they travel or move and she can only keep it correct and current with everyone's help.  Just click on the link, go to your city/state/country and see if the listings are correct or if you are in a class that isn't listed.  Perhaps your instructor doesn't get the newsletter (and you need to tell them to get it by sending me an email to tkandr@aol.comand I'll add them.  LOL) or times and days have changed.  It will only take a second to check and Stacy and I would REALLY appreciate it.  Be sure and do it through the form, though, because that goes directly to her.  Thanks a bunch.

SCAM ALERT:
Don't call back phone numbers that ring once and hang up, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has warned.

People throughout the U.S. have been receiving "One Ring" or "Wangiri" robocalls in bursts, according to officials. The calls are targeting specific area codes "often calling multiple times in the middle of the night."

"These calls are likely trying to prompt consumers to call the number back, often resulting in per minute toll charges similar to a 900 number," the agency said in a news release on Friday. "Consumers should not call these numbers back."

Typically, officials have said this is how the scam unfolds: The robocaller will dial a number before hanging up after one to two rings. They might do this repeatedly, "hoping the consumer calls back and runs up a toll that is largely paid to the scammer."

Hiya, the app company that helps people identify whether they're receiving a spam call, also warned of the dangers of picking up the "Wangiri" calls in a news release on Friday.

The company, which claims to analyze more than 13 billion calls per month, stated that the scam started appearing in the U.S. around 2013, and has increased both in the U.S. and other countries, like Ireland, Scotland and Germany, since.

The scam increased 98 percent in Q1, according to Hiya data, which also found that a spike in calls has been linked to Sierra Leone, a country in West Africa
