This annual music and dance weekend has gained a national reputation among dancers and old-time musicians. The second weekend in March 200 people gather at Maplelag for workshops, dances, jamming, and fun. The fun includes skiing on 60K of groomed trails at Maplelag,and use of the entire lodge. The huge hot tub is a hit with worn-out dancers and every year a few brave souls jump in the lake (through a hole cut in the ice) after relaxing in the sauna. The emphasis is on old-time music and square dancing, but the group likes to mix it up, too. In addition to a great old-time band and experienced caller, every year a second band performs for dances and we offer related workshops. In the past workshops in swing, Cajun, zydeco, and Scandinavian dancing have been offered.
