I would also like to thank my fellow event directors Becky Larson & Jason Marker, our teaching staff Jason Barnes, Fred & Tina Price, Mike Topel, and Tera Vitale, our helpers Jeff & Tera Vitale, Ann Marie Belanger, our head judge Bob Budzynski, our main judges Richard Cooper, Dawn Bagley, and Beverly Budzynski, and our part time judges (too many to list), R & C Master Dance Floors, Ron Mathis, Cherry Taylor & the floor crew, and all the other people who helped with various tasks, and last but not least, our DJ's DJ JZone, DJ Fred Price, DJ Bob Budzynski, DJ Mike Topel, DJ Jason Marker, and DJ Timothy Michael.

Much time and effort was put in by the Spring Swing 2002 staff and volunteer helpers. Thank you for your hard work and extra efforts making Spring Swing 2002 an event to remember. Your hard work allowed us to stay on time and to provide over 10 hours of social dance time during the weekend in addition to all the scheduled dance competitions and performances. Your extra efforts helped us add an Invitational Jack & Jill and a DJ Spin-off to the event on Saturday night.

If you were unable to attend, consider reading some comments we recieved from dancers that attended Spring Swing 2002 to get an idea of how things went.
