Note that you will need an appropriate PDF viewer to view or
print the files.
The domain of theassdf.org allows me more space for the PDF
files than for the "new website", which is located at https://www.arkansassquaredance.com and look for the link for
"The Modern Square And Internet Links".
The domain with theassdf.org is designed for slower internet
connections, such as DSL or in cellphone areas where users are
"on the fringe". A bit more graphics intensive site, that takes
a bit longer to load, is https://www.arkansassquaredance.com
The e-Edition can be obtained, FREE OF CHARGE, by sending an
email to ASSDFModernSquare@gmail.com -- if you haven't been
receiving a free copy, you either aren't signed up, or your
email bounced as undeliverable. If the latter is the case, you
need to contact yours truly, with the updated information.
The print edition is $20 per year, and can be obtained by
making a check to ASSDF for the desired amount, and mailing
it to Sheila Gesing, 9760 Grant 7, Sheridan, AR 72150. The
print edition was sent to Arkansas Printing on July 16, and
I hope it can be in subscribers mailboxes by July 31.
If you're not receiving the print edition, either you aren't
signed up for a subscription, your subscription has expired,
or your copy was returned as undeliverable. If the latter is
the case, you need to contact yours truly, with the updated
There are several differences between the e-Edition and the
print edition, as follows:
1) The e-Edition is FREE. The Print Edition is $20 per year.
2) The e-Edition is sent out on the 11th of the month. If there
is a needed delay, such as in waiting for clarification on an
upcoming special dance, it is sent out on the 16th of the month.
The print edition is sent out from the printer by the 24th of
the month, hopefully to arrive in subscribers mailboxes by the
end of the month.
3) All pictures submitted to the Editor are published in the
e-Edition, and they are in COLOR, as is the entire e-Edition.
Due to cost and space limits, no extra pictures are in the
print edition, and the entire print edition is in black and
4) All links in the e-Edition, email and otherwise, are clickable
in your PDF reader.
The normal deadline for the submission of articles, ad copy,
etc. to the Editor, is the 10th of the month, prior to the month
of issue. Sometimes, there is a delay, but in that case, the
deadline is the 15th of the month, prior to the month of issue.
The deadline for the September, 2020 issue will be August 10.
With the COVID-19 pandemic, very few clubs are dancing. Those
that are likely require MASKS on all dancers, and gloves are
strongly recommended. Please call before you travel, as most
clubs are dark, and many previously scheduled special dances,
are being cancelled.
I also send out Reminder Cards to the print subscribers, whose
subscription is about to expire. If you have a question on when
your print subscription expires, please contact me at one of the
ways noted below.
