X:2 T:Box Social Two-Step M:C| L:1/8 C:by Andy Dejarlis S:after Vernon BC O.T. fiddlers; original name was Weekenders Two-Step H:Vivian and Phil Williams went to the Vernon, B.C. fiddle contest -- probably late H:'70's or early '80's, and bought a cassette from the Vernon Old Time fiddlers. H:Listening to the tune on the way back to Seattle, they thought this would make a H:good contra dance march. Vivian doesn't know how the name got changed. H:It definitely isn't the same tune as Basket Social Two-Step (also by DeJarlis).
