Marathon Club Members Rock and Roll in Rapid City

After a short retreat back at the campground, the group was ready for a night of dinner and dancing at Arrowhead Country Club in Rapid City. Upon arrival, a variety of tasty appetizers were passed while people mingled. At the conclusion of dinner, it was time to dance! "DD & the Fayrohs" were inducted into the South Dakota Rock-and-Roll Hall of Fame in 2011, and attendees quickly knew why. As they played "The Loco-Motion," attendee Sandy Kincaid grabbed people from their tables and started an enthusiastic train of dancers throughout the ballroom. "Hang on Sloopy" proved to be another popular song. Want to know more? Be sure to read the rally review in "The Maratime" or online.
