Will The 50 Survive?

Written by Markie Bee on March 25, 2016.

I guess I didn't pick the best day to comeback to writing... By now you probably know there was a shooting at the 50 Yard Line last night. There was a shooting there in 2011 but who knows - in this day and age it could spell the same fate as the Shrine (which was closed after a shooting).

I know it's been a long time since I wrote anything in this column but I figured it was more important to work on my health than write about steppin. Some positive things have been happening in my health battles. I have been checked in every way shape and form to see if I had any form of cancer. I'm happy to say I'm clear.

They've checked my heart (inside and out), found a small problem right now but those things can be fluid. I'm on meds for that. As far as my emphysema - well I've quit smoking and am on oxygen but I've been cleared to travel (in May) so you know I'm going to be at Stepaganza. 

If you haven't noticed I have a brand new smile (thanks again VA).

I've been to a few sets but I've found taking public transportation with an Oxygen tank kinda sucks so I'm limited to those sets where people can give me a ride to the set. Yes I live in the city on the south side so it's not hard.

While I've been indisposed; I've had my hand in a few things (just not too much). I've been doing a fair amount of reading and I'm going to tell you about that real soon because I feel what I've read can have an impact on the growth of the steppers community.

You'll see soon enough! Stay tuned! Same steppers station. LOL

***UPDATE*** The 50 will re-open on April 4th according to the owner.

SteppersUSA is  looking for people who can tell the story to the nation...
I'm looking for staff from Chicago, the East coast (Atlanta, Central Florida, North Carolina), the mid west beyond & including Chicago (Detroit), the west and  on the west coast (San Francisco/Oakland and Seattle). If you take photos -- that's great but it's not necessary (perhaps you know someone who takes photos at the set -- even with a camera phone) we are looking to keep the country informed about the world of steppin in your area.  Shoot me an email!
