This year is the 10th anniversary of the beginning of the Lindy
, which happened in San Francisco in 1998
The cultural phenomenon known as a "Lindy Exchange" began with 19
Chicagoans visited San Francisco and got much more than they bargained
We'd like to honor these unwitting dance pioneers, and so we are giving
all of them free admission to SFLX'08. We are in the process of tracking
them down now, please see our "find people"
if you think you can help.
The Chicago 19:
||Helena (Shiels) Laven
||Scott Grey (R.I.P.)
Less easy to figure out is the list of SF participants.
We didn't exactly have websites and registration back then.
To simplify things we are going to be inviting anyone who
was at more than two of the dances and/or hosted any of the dancers
during that fateful weekend.
This list is difficult to discern, so this will definitely grow
over time - please let us know
if you were
one of these people or know someone who was!

We know there are more, but we don't know who, so please
help us find them!
