Coyote/TNT Square and Round Dance
Hello <<First Name>>,
Hello again to all square dance callers, square dancers, round dance cuer’s and round dancers everywhere. Thank you in advance for letting us be a part of your annoying emails.
As the Merle Haggard song says , If we make it through December, we’ll be fine. We did make it through December. We have had our 2 Covid vaccination shots so we are good to go, so let’s get on with this newsletter.
This newsletter contains
- Don's comments
- Coyote & TNT Music Offerings
- Music Listing For Theme Dances
- American Squaredance Magazine Information
- New Note Service
- Caller School listings
- National Square Dance Convention dates and places
I attended the CALLERLAB virtual convention on March 27 along with 324 other callers. Mike Seastrom was the keynote speaker. He incorporated in his speech a slide presentation that featured different medical experts pointing out the necessity of staying active. Dancing was one of the things that was highlighted in these studies. Because it would be a great recruiting tool to use when we are promoting square dancing, we are showing three of our favorites from Mikes slides. CALLERLAB HAS POSTED THE COMPLETE SPEECH ON YOUTUBE AT https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H6rsbdNbx3w if you haven’t heard it yet.
The happy hour at the end was good because it gave callers a chance to say a few words. It was nice to hear comments from callers from such faraway places as Austria, Germany and Great Britain. Maybe we will see you in person at the next CALLERLAB convention which will be held in Pittsburgh, PA in 2022.

DON SINGS FROM THE HEART CD
Several years ago I recorded this album at Circle Left Studios located in Spring Hill, Tennessee. Spring Hill, TN is a town just outside of Nashville so the studio gets the best pickers to work for them. There are 22 tracks on the CD.
I sang on the first 11 tracks and the other 11 tracks are for karaoke use. I use the karaoke at party dances and between tips at my dances. This music can be bought right from the Coyote-TNT web site by clicking onto the Don Coy CD button, or from Amazon and iTunes. You can also get the CD directly from me. Just contact me by phone, email or text. The cost direct to you is $8.99 which includes shipping charges.
We thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to read our newsletter. If you have any comments for us, feel free to express them. You can email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org .

KEEP THIS IN MIND
- The difference between a good and bad haircut is two WEEKS.
- Life is like a roll of toilet paper, THE SHORTER IT GETS, THE FASTER IT GOES,
- and just remember, IF THE COYOTE DOESN'T GET YOU THE TNT WILL.
GOD BE WITH YOU TIL WE MEET AGAIN.
