Square Dancing is Fun
The latest (Oct) issue of Square Time is out. Pick up your copy at your club or view it online.
SVSRDA (Seaway Valley Square and Round Dance Association) has adopted eoDance.ca as their official website as a replacement for their previous site.
EOSARDA (Eastern Ontario Square and Round Dance Association) adopted eoDance.ca several years ago in a similar fashion when it was looking to replace its former website.
Now there's only one site needed with information on Clubs, Callers, Cuers and Events. This will make the information easier to find and keep updated. Information that is specific to EOSARDA or SVSRDA can be found under the “Associations” menu while the rest of the common information is linked under the main menus in eoDance as it always has been.
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.
