The Wild Goose Chase Cloggers will continue a decades-long annual dance weekend called “MooseJaw” March 9-11 at the Maplelag Cross-Country Ski Resort near Detroit Lakes, Minnesota, about 4 hours northwest of the Twin Cities. We hope you’ll join us on March 9–11, 2012 for our annual dance weekend

Come hear “ass-kicking old-time music” by the hottest stringband in the scene today, Foghorn Stringband. Square and contra dances will be called by former Wild Goose Chase Clogger, Sue Hulsether. Two-step the night away with hometown Cajun dance hall heroes, The Bone Tones. Workshop offerings will include fiddle, banjo, guitar, singing, and many dance forms including Cajun dancing lead by Maureen Mullen. Theres also miles of beautiful cross-country skiing, the largest hot tub in Minnesota, all the hot coffee you could imagine, and of course, a bottomless cookie jar.

Based on the number of early registrations, we anticipate a full weekend. If you are intending to come to Moosejaw, please send in your registration soon to assure your spot.
