I'm writing to you from Houston, Texas, USA where we are all looking forward to an exciting day today! Patrick and Lisa's film "One Last Dance" will have it's premiere screening this evening as the opening night film of the WorldFest - Houston Film Festival! The posters are ready, the stage is set and we are all waiting with bated breath for the unveiling of "One Last Dance".

Patrick and Lisa are very busy doing interviews for the newspapers and also for TV - check out Channel 11 and Fox Channel 26 in the USA this morning for coverage of their interviews. They have also been interviewed by the German ARDtv who are here to cover the Film Festival!

Fans have come in to Houston from all over the world and it promises to be a wonderful night! For those of you who want to meet up with the Official Fan Club at the Festival this evening, we will be grouping at the front right side of the Cinema complex at Nova Meyerland Plaza (the side facing J C Penney). We hope to see you there to share the fun of the parade and enjoy "One Last Dance"!

In friendship, Margaret.

Wednesday 26th March 2003: Hello Everyone!

I've had a few enquiries from fans asking for more detail about what would be appropriate to wear for the opening night of the Houston Film Festival. I've contacted the Festival office again, and they told me that Cocktail attire would be perfect for the opening night. The Champagne Reception at the Inter-Continental Hotel follows after the early 7.15pm screening of Patrick and Lisa's film "One Last Dance".

They said they have invited guests coming from all over the world, so there will be guests in Cocktail wear and there may be some guests in casual wear too, but bear in mind the Champagne Reception follows at the Inter-Continental if you will be going there afterwards.

In friendship, Margaret. Saturday 22nd March 2003: Hello Everyone!

The WorldFest office have told us that the "dress code" for the opening night of the Houston Film Festival is semi-formal. If that changes at all, we will let you know right away. Remember to e-mail us at fanclub@patrickswayze.net if you intend to travel to Houston to see "One Last Dance" being introduced in person by Patrick and Lisa!

In friendship, Margaret.
