Frontier Squares

Banner Raids

We participate in the Greater Cincinnati Dance Federation Banner Raid program.  The clubs that participate have a banner with their name and small replica of their club logo on it.  We schedule a date to go to a club and take their banner (a "Raid"), then that club comes to one of our dances to "Retrieve" their banner.  This program encourages groups of dancers from area clubs to visit each other. The benefits are many – getting to know other dancers, enjoying a variety of callers, increasing dance attendance….but mainly having fun.  We keep track every time you attend a Banner Raid or Retrieval and you receive a dangle for every five you attend.  You'll have a dangle with "10" on it before you know it.  Every time you get a new one you can return the old one and it gets passed on to someone else.
