At Client's request, Caller can play square dance music between dance tips, but Client acknowledges that Caller is not equipped to provide general disc jockey services.

However, if either party reasonably judges that the event must be cancelled because inclement weather has produced unsafe transportation conditions, then neither party shall be expected to compensate the other. If caller is unable to provide square dance calling due to illness, serious family emergency, or other very serious circumstance, then Caller may, at Caller's discretion, fulfil this contract by arranging for a qualified substitute caller to provide calling in accordance with the terms of this contract.
