We now have supervised child care available. Cost is regular admission price for your first child ($5 for non-members; $4 for members). Additional children are $3 each. We are doing this on a trial basis. Please let us know how you feel about it, either verbally or via the suggestion box at the entrance table. We would welcome any donations (or loans) of toddler-safe games and appropriate videotapes.

Computer Stuff: There have been some changes to the NACDS Web page, and some additional capabilities are coming up soon. First, the new address for the page is <>. This page has our upcoming events, a map, our logos, and links to some other cool places. Links include all of our newsletters (done in hypertext, so you can click to go to interesting places), a schedule of area dances (Including Nashville and Birmingham, as well as special events all over the South), and a map of the South that lets you pick the spot you want to know about and go to their local web page. The new capabilities are an e-mail address for the group (, and two new electronic mailing lists. The two mailing lists are NACDS.announce, which is for occasional announcements of dance dates or schedule changes, and NACDS.steer, which is an electronic version of the old steering committee. Everyone whose e-mail address is in the directory will be added to the NACDS.announce group, since traffic will be low and regulated. Anyone who wants can also join NACDS.steer, and anyone who joins that list can post to all the other members of the list. Details on joining the mailing list will be available next month (it should be up and running by then), or by checking the home page.

The Executive Committee will meet again in early August. Please contact Amanda (883-7453), Katrina (536-1397), or Bryan (837-0656) if you have an issue you'd like to see on the agenda.

Bring some SNACKING GOODIES to the dances, and a FAN to help cool us off. You will get a $1 discount for providing either of these contributions ($2 if you come laden with both!)
