THE MODERN SQUARE ARCHIVE
E-Editions of The Modern Square, in PDF format, are noted below. Note that for some years, some months had no issue published, and e-Editions are NOT available before 2015.
As we've discontinued printing The Modern Square, please consider donating $5 to the ASSDF via the ASSDF Treasurer, to help pay for the website/hosting fees going forward. The final print edition (December, 2023) is available here, and it will remain on the website for posterity. For details on changes with The Modern Square, effective with the January, 2024 issue (which will be e-Edition ONLY), click here. As of December, 2023, the e-Edition continues, in "3 flavors" as follows:
1) Full e-Edition, with special dance flyers and ads...current and back issues can be found here -- for the back issues, just scroll down the page to the desired link. Going forward from December, 2023, this is just like the original print edition was...but in color, and all the links (unless within ads) are clickable.
2) Compact e-Edition, without the special dance flyers and ads (for those with limited space, or on a limited phone/internet data plan). Like the full e-Edition, the links (unless within ads) are clickable. The current issue (December, 2023) can be found here. Back issues to June, 2023, are available by email request to assdfmodernsquare at gmail dot com
3) Special Dance Photos (including from the ASSDF Fall Festival) are now in a separate PDF file, can be found here. These files can be rather large, so if you're on dial-up internet, it will take some time to download these. Going forward from the December, 2023 issue, the ASSDF Fall Festival photos and club special dance photos will be in separate files. This makes the size of the regular e-Edition more manageable. The length of time that these Special Dance Photos will remain on the ASSDF website is to be determined. Once offline, they'll be available via email request to assdfmodernsquare at gmail dot com
As a side note, I looked back through past e-Editions, on the website, and on my computer...and I couldn't find any photos from the 2016 Fall Festival, and the 2020 Fall Festival was canceled, due to Covid-19. The other place to check for other photos is the Arkansas' Fall Festival Page on Facebook, located here.
You can get email notifications on these releases, as well as updates on ASSDF clubs (special dances, lessons, last minute cancellations, etc.) by sending an email with your name and email address to assdfmodernsquare at gmail dot com
Effective with the January, 2024 e-Edition, the deadline changes to the last Saturday of the month, at 9pm Central Time. Links to new issues are activated (and colors are changed) once the issue has been released. The planned release dates are noted below, and additional issues will be added later.
