The RAID PROGRAM promotes interaction among clubs. Our goal is to raid several clubs during the dance year (June 1 – May 31).
Each raid gives us points based on the distance between our club and the one we are raiding. Earning 200 points gives the club a 50% discount on annual dues to the NNJSDA. The program can be completed twice in the dance year, giving the club a 100% dues reduction.
This is a great way to support other clubs, socialize, encourage non-members to visit us, and reduce our NNJSDA dues for next year - wins all around. So mark your new calendar now! We'll arrange carpooling when the dates get closer.
Please email Raid Chairperson Lise Greene to sign up for raids or get more info. Reelers attending raids often carpool and dine together before the dance.
