Frontier Squares Ohio

Banner Raids


We participate in the Greater Cincinnati Dance Federation's Banner Raid program.


Participating clubs have a banner with their name and a replica of their club logo. Before a banner raid or retrieval, both clubs' Banner Chairpersons will discuss and arrange dates, times, and details. After being confirmed, Frontier Squares Members will be notified of the date we are going to the other club's dance and take their banner (a "Raid"). Later, the other club comes to one of our dances to "Retrieve" their banner. A club must have at least one square to qualify for a banner raid.


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!


Frontier Squares' Banner Chair, Russ DeMaris, keeps track every time you attend a Banner Raid or Retrieval.  You receive a dangle for every five you attend. You'll have a dangle with "10" before you know it. Every time you get a new one, you can return the old one, which gets passed on to someone else.



For all Banner Raids and Banner Retrievals, sign in on the Frontier Squares Raid Log after entering the dance.

Wear your club polos or colors!
