30-UP IS SEEKING NEW DIRECTORS
30 UP is a membership club. We rely on the skills, talents, and energies of all our members to succeed.
We need new directors to steer the Club into an uncertain and changing future. Do you have leadership skills? The ability to strategize 30-UP POST PANDEMIC, 30-UP NEXT GENERATION? What about financial skills, marketing, communication, technological skills?
All directorship positions are up for re-election at the AGM in April, and several current directors have indicated they will not run again.
Dancers, are you ready to STEP forward? Please talk to Marjorie White at 416-702-8747.
- Orlando is the DJ on Friday Evening Oct 22. Tickets are still available.
- Alex is the DJ on Saturday Evening Oct 23. ALMOST SOLD OUT
- Larry is the D J on Tuesday Afternoon Tea Dance Oct 26.
- We are licenced as a 'Dinner Club with Dancing', which has stricter patron limits than either restaurants or health clubs (25% of maximum). If our limits are raised, (which may happen this week, we will immediately release new seats for the Saturday dance.
- The Sapphire Dance Club runs dances on Sunday Afternoons and Tuesday Evenings. Text Yuli at 416-577-5293 for more info.
- The Java Dance Club runs dances on Sunday Evenings. Text Haida at 416-918-7357 for more info.

- Reservations are REQUIRED for ALL these dances, DO NOT JUST SHOW UP. You can book your spot online with our Reservation System.
- Proof of Vaccination is Required
We have spaced out the seating for 6-foot separation, and only book 2 people per table. With a maximum of 38 people, the club is fairly empty.
If you want to move and sit with your friends, that's fine but use common sense and find a table where you are at least 6 feet from the nearest neighbours.
And keep your masks on. We look forward to seeing you at the Club.
ALEX RIVAS LINE DANCE LESSON THIS SATURDAY 7:00 to 7:30
Alex will be teaching a 30-minute line dance lesson from 7:00 to 7:30 on Saturday October 22 (Free with admission). It's great fun and you don't need a partner.

The regular dance will begin promptly at 7:30.

RESERVATIONS ARE REQUIRED
You now need a reservation to dance at the 30-UP Club. There are several reasons. We have to keep a detailed attendance log for Public Health. We are only allowed a small number of attendees (38). We don't want to handle cash at the door for safety reasons. We have to track who has shown us their proof of vaccinations. It's all part of keeping you safe as you dance at the 30-Up.
For those reasons, and more, we have built an on-line reservation system for the club.
To reserve your spot, visit http://30-Up.com and click on 'Reservations' on the top menu. Register on our site if you have not already done so. Flip to the date that you want to dance, click on the event, and reserve your spot. Let us know if you have any difficulties, it's a new system and may have some kinks.
If the system says that you are not a member, then likely you have a different email address on our files. Simply send an email to Peter Van Tol at firstname.lastname@example.org (or talk to any board member) and we'll get it corrected.
YOU CANNOT PAY AT THE DOOR
You must reserve and pay ahead for 30-Up Club Dance events when you make your reservations. We do not accept cash at the door.
PROOF OF VACCINATION IS REQUIRED
You must show us proof of full vaccination in order to enter the 30-Up Club.
You only have to do this once and we will tick you on our new reservation system. We will not keep a copy of it or any information in it. But we need to see your vaccination record before we will let you into the club.
If there is a medical reason that you cannot get vaccinated, then call Marjorie and we will try to find an accommodation that keeps both you and our dancers safe.
You can mail a screenshot or a photo of your proof of vaccination to Marjorie at email@example.com, or bring it with you the first time you come to a dance.
OUR NEW RESERVATION SYSTEM IS UP AND RUNNING
The reservation system is running, and it's a key element for keeping you safe at the 30-Up Club, and for helping us manage reservations.
If you log in, you can see what events are running, confirm your reservations, and see who will be at the table with you. It's first-name only for privacy reasons.
But we can see even more! The image to the right is what we see when we look at a club event. The green checkmarks show dancers who have provided their proof of vaccination. We follow-up the others BEFORE they arrive at the Club, and prevent them from entering. We have full email and phone tracing in case Toronto Public Health needs to see it.
You only have to show us your proof of vaccination once. We will not keep a copy of it or any information in it. But we will not let you into the club without it.
