Well 2009 has certainly started off by being hectic. Starting a new and very
exciting organization is always a lot of fun, but also a lot of work. The feedback we have received from you guys
has been fantastic and this is really that we have made the right decision.
During 2009, as well as competitions, we would like to have social
events where we can get to see each other and chat and have fun. We will also be launching a website soon as well
as regular newsletters. We would like to be to include lists of clubs and their exact locations so that anyone
travelling around the country can still go to aclass and enjoy themselves. In order to do this, we need contact
names and numbers and addresses of venues. I know some did send in this information last year, we have that info,
however, if you could re-send it to our e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org or
fax it to 086 5300 540 we can include it on the website or newsletter.
The SA Masters event (8th - 10th May 2009) is
fast approaching, and although there are plans to have some smaller practice” competitions in some of the
provinces, this will be our first BIG event for 2009. We should also point out that we will be following the
Masters-In-Line competition calendar, which in effect means that the dances will be changed after the World Masters
on 17th August 2009. The Gauteng competition in September will be the first competition using the new
2009/2010 dances. Having said that, we intend to have Nicola out here for the SA
Masters in May and we intend having dance workshops on the Sunday
where some of the new dances will already start being taught. (Competition packs are available at R100.00 + P&P
- please phone Nadia or e-mail us to order)
The membership forms for 2009 are attached. LDSA Membership Application.pdf Our membership year runs from
January to December of any said year.
The Classic dances which you have been asking for, these will be
released soon. SA Masters will include these dances in a division on their own. Music and step sheets will be
available soon. Please note that World Masters does NOT have a Classic section, nor does it have an absolute
beginner section at this stage. Anyone planning to go over to Blackpool in August, MUST dance at the SA Masters in
the International Style sections Newcomer to Advanced.
We look forward to a great year with open communication between all of
us. We are hoping to work with all the other associations involved in Line dance.
Chat to you again soon
