The 2013 Alguire Memorial Callers School was held at the Elm River Park Campground in Glenholme, with a class of eight enrolled. Nova Scotia callers Dottie Welch and Kerry Fletcher were assisted this year by CALLERLAB accredited caller coach Betsy Gotta from new Jersey. The currriculum covered the full CALLERLAB recommended School Curriculum, with training levels customized for both new and experienced callers. A significant bonus this year was a three day mini-school for three round dance cuers presented by Betsy's husband Roy, who is currently the Vice Chairman of ROUNDALAB.
