Thank you for your cooperation.
We suffered a set-back with our sparkling new floor at Sundance Saloon when the building's cleaners treated the floor and made it unbearably sticky. We had to close last Sunday, and we are making every effort to fix the situation in time for Thursday's event.
We are currently assisting the club in interviewing professional commercial janitorial services to safely remove the sticky residue and restore the finish to the original. We announced at Sundance Saloon that we might need a small army of volunteers, possibly Wednesday night, but we are hoping this won't be necessary. Please watch this space for further updates.
We fully expect to have a rejuvenated dance floor so we can get back to enjoyed the awesome experience we all had last week. And we thank you all for your patience. Our plan is to be open this Thursday as usual, and then offer our community free admission on Sunday, June 23. We will continue to post information here.

Did you know that Sundance Saloon is run entirely by volunteers? The managers, front door and coat-check staff, set-up crew, instructors, and DJs all donate their time to create this unique institution. It is the cumulative effort of dozens of volunteers that keep Sundance Saloon thriving and make it such a special place.
We are continue to recruit new volunteers for the front door and coat-check, especially those who can commit to serving one hour a month on Sundays. If you can help us out, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
