My next competition, after a whole quarter with none (thankfully, given how crazily busy I've been), is the regional championships next Saturday, June 9, in the San Jose Civic Auditorium. (This will qualify us for Nationals in August.) The first round of my event is scheduled for 9:35pm, give or take half an hour or so, and with subsequent rounds after that -- I'm guessing there will be at least three (a quarterfinal, semifinal, and final, and possibly an octo-final too).

In addition, the kids I've helped coach in East Palo Alto will be dancing in a special event (listed on the schedule as "Special Junior Rhythm & Smooth Presentations") -- they'll dance American-style waltz, foxtrot, cha cha, and swing. They're scheduled for 3:42pm (again, give or take half an hour). I'm incredibly proud of them, frustrating as they can be at times. (Luckily I remember all too well how cheeky I was around their age and can relate and deal.) Anyway, I'd love for them to get all the support and encouragement they can get, so if you're at all interested in coming, please do!

Spectator tickets are $25 for "adults," $20 for college students, and $12 for anyone under 18 years old.

Also, on Sunday, June 17, a week after the competition, SBDT is hosting a charity ball (with lesson, desserts, and showcase) for the Richmond/Ermet AIDS Foundation at Metronome Ballroom in SF. It's appropriate for all skill levels (intro tango class at the beginning) and all proceeds go to a good cause. This one is $25 adults/$15 students, +$5 for the lesson. I'll be out of town, unfortunately, but lots of other ballroom dancers should be there. Details behind the cut ... )

Woa -- the eastbound 580 section of The Maze, which goes from the Bay Bridge to the 580, collapsed onto the section that connects the 80 to the 880 south because of an explosive gas truck fire last night. Two freeways are completely closed there. This is going to suck.

It's the section right in the middle of this map. Here's the SF Chronicle blog entry on it.





UPDATE: ABC has a video of the collapse.

If you happen to be up at 3am, you can check out the Exploratorium's live webcast (or their all-night solar eclipse party). Hope my friends in Turkey have better weather than we have now in the Bay Area!
