The ASSDF has added Booster Ads to The Modern Square. The ads will be for non-square dance related announcements, and used to support The Modern Square. Prices are $10 per insertion, whether for ASSDF Clubs individuals, or otherwise. For details, click here. You will need the Adobe Acrobat Reader to view/print the file. Booster Ads are NOT listed here...as the length of publication for each one varies. The price for Booster Ads is $10 per insertion.
The ASSDF is also now offering a column called ''Spotlight''...where you can spotlight a square dance caller, round dance cuer, line dance instructor, an individual square or round dancer, a club, etc. You can use this to celebrate a clubs anniversary, pay tribute to someone with their work with square dancing, round dancing, etc. The Spotlight will be a full page insertion for a cost of $15.
Note that subscriptions to The Modern Square, plus the ASSDF fund the lion's share of this publication...BUT IT IS NOT ENOUGH. Plain and simply put, WE DESPERATELY NEED AD INCOME. Without the income generated by ads, the number of pages will have to be cut back. The size of Reports from the various member clubs would be STRICTLY ENFORCED to a LIMIT OF 250 WORDS. Plus, PICTURES WOULD BE ELIMINATED FROM THE PRINT EDITION (Pictures WOULD be printed in the e-Edition); and the publication may have to go to BI-MONTHLY, or to the MINIMUM of quarterly (4 times a year). Note that NONE OF THIS IS DESIRABLE....plus, NONE OF IT IS NECESSARY.
In response to the editor's plea in the November, 2015 issue, there was ONLY 1 Booster Ad, 1 half page ad, and NO Spotlight Ads, or special dance ads. As a result, because of cost, PICTURES WERE REMOVED FROM THE PRINT EDITION of the December, 2015 issue of The Modern Square, but were available in the e-Edition. If further ad revenue is not found or generated, the frequency of publication will likely be REDUCED to either bi-monthly (every other month), or AT MINIMUM, reduced to quarterly (4 times a year).
The Postal Service will NOT permit mailing of a publication that can not publish 4 times a year. And, if the total number of PAID SUBSCRIPTIONS drops to 50 (it was below 100 as of September, 2017), the Postal Service will NOT permit mailing of the publication, if they do NOT pay the HIGHER FIRST CLASS POSTAGE RATE.
In short, PLEASE SUPPORT YOUR PUBLICATION. You can do that if you will take an active role in finding individuals or companies to advertise with us...if your club would advertise specials in The Modern Square (with an ad, and not just a note in the Special Dances Listing)... if your club would SPOTLIGHT the club, the caller, or an individual...or if you would place a Booster Ad.

When these ads are purchased, it helps the ASSDF with festival expenses...plus their ad is placed here through at least mid-June of the following year, as a THANK YOU to these individuals and businesses, for their support of the weekend festival.
