Thank you for reminding me of the name of this fine gentleman. He impressed me as a paragon of virtue.
I have some answers for two of you.
FamilyMan: People of all Spanish levels are welcome, but if you do not know any Spanish at all, you may want to check with the group's organizers. There is a phone number provided in the breakout box.
VaKemp: They met yesterday so the next meeting will be on the 14th.
Hope this helps.
Does anyone know which thursday rotation they are currently on? As in, did they meet this thursday, so will have one again on 14th?
Riverboat, the gentleman you are referring about is the late Ingnacio Diaz. He was a very intelligent and knowledgeable person. He was also a principle with VISD.
Do you need to know the spanish language to join? Or can you be a beginner with no spanish experience? Just want to learn spanish.
Years ago a similar group began meeting at Victoria College. One of the movers was a professor whose name I have unfortunately forgotten, but he contributed a column - "Dichos y Dicharachos" - for the Revista Victoria. He was eminently learned, and graceful in an Old World kind of way. (He was also devoted Texas Longhorns fan, but I didn't hold that against him.) It promised to be a tremendous learning experience; unfortunately, it disbanded soon afterward.
I wish I'd known about this new group when it first started. Count me in.
Speaking of high school drill teams. In the mid 80's we had a daughter in the Victoriadores and the best I can remember we had to come up with approximately $800 the first year for just uniforms, hats, boots, etc... I remember thinking, this certainly eliminates involvement to lots of young ladies whose parents would be unable to afford this amount. I can only imagine what it must cost in 2010, plus you probably have to belong to some dance studio to be able to make the team.
It just seems everyone should be able to afford to try to make a public high school team, regardless of financial status.
