Square Dancing is Fun
Another successful Swing into Spring is in the books. Thanks to Gary and Jerry for super calling, and Roy & Janet for super cueing! Everyone who was there had a wonderful time! And thank you to everyone who did attend - whether for all of it or part of it, your attendance and support were greatly appreciated. The Organizing Committee, EOSARDA, and SVSRDA thank you all.
The latest (Apri) issue of Square Time is out. Pick up your copy at your club or view it online.
For a long time now, callers have been involved with local schools and showing students how much fun square dancing is -- of course, edging out English, History and Geography might not be that hard a sell and spending time in the gym easily beats out sitting in a class behind a desk most times.
Check out the schools and programs that we know about. Some have been doing it for 30 or more years and are still going strong.
Here is some information for anyone creating a PDF or JPG file or flyer that is going to be posted on any website. When it comes to EOSARDA, this will typically be a flyer for an event for your club that you may wish to have posted on the web calendar on the eoDance website or that you want sent out as an EOSARDA Bulletin.
The sizes of some files submitted are very much larger than they neeed to be. This
- takes up space on our servers,
- makes the flyer slow to open, and
- will use/cost more bandwidth for those using a mobile device.
You need to be aware of the size of the files that you are asking people to post. There are many Free On-Line tools available that will easily compress and reduce the size of your file before you submit it and make it 3 to 5 times smaller.
Check out the eoDance Submit an Event page for more information on identifying the size of your file and for some links to a few on-line sites that can reduce your file size easily.
