Re: Bellewode Ball Thank Yous
- My experience was incredibly good, and yes, I do think a Caroso-style ball is a great idea. Breaks were adequate, and yes, the index cards were, I think, an inspired touch. Even if you could alternate between years (a Caroso one year and then the format we used last year), I think it could work well in a lot of aspects. That's just me, though.

Any comments are welcome either on the list or privately.
