    In my opinion, marathons are more for mature tango dancers that already know history etc. and will politely watch performances. However, these things take up valuable dance time. The main complain I've heard about Marathons, that do food, is the food. Runs out, not good, etc. I've even been to ballroom event that the food cause food poisoning. Having said these things; Venue was excellent, there were plenty of quality dancers, really felt a warm community feeling. This 1st one is a excellent start and something you could build on.

    I would like all traditional music. Alternative/nuevo tandas were not very good and I heard people complaining about them as well. Also, I agree with Steve above in that the performance sessions were overly long. One or two dances would suffice if there have to be performances at all. Other than that, I loved the venue (the floor was excellent). I also very much appreciated that the chefs were standing by to take care of the needs of the dancers. Organizers were wonderful, and I danced some of my favorite dancers. Looking forward to next year's event!
