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.
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.
