Get Your Information in the OFN
There has been a lot of confusion about what information you can include
in the online OFN, and how you get that information presented. I'm going
to try to summarize that as best as I can.
Club and Council News: I would like you to continue to handle club
and council news just like you have been handling it all along. Club
reps should send their news items to their Area Editors. The Area Editors
will gather them all up and send them to me. The deadlines will be up to
the Area Editors. As long as they are to me by the 10th, all will be
Pictures: For now, please send your pictures directly to
I am in the process of adding a method for you to upload them directly,
but it's not there yet. Please include a few lines about the picture
that I can use as a caption.
Changes in Caller, Cuer, or Schedule: You are in control of the
dance information that gets displayed in the main section down below.
You can change the callers and cuers, you can set a theme, you can make
a dance go dark (or not). You can even add additional special dances.
To do any of that, you need to go to the
state directory club info area. Use the "Dance" page
to update your regular dance information, and use the "Edit" page to edit
specific dance information.
You can update your flyers on the same page where you change the themes
and callers. Flyers should be full page (8.5" x 11"), and need to be either
JPEG or PDF. The web site will make a small thumbnail to go in the
flyer collection just below.
You can also update your lesson information on the state directory
page mentioned above. Use the "Lessons" tab. Contact
if you have trouble. Note that you can add both square and round
Available Callers and Cuers:
The "available callers and cuers" list is now included in the online
OFN. If you are a caller or cuer who wishes to be included, please
send your contact information to the editor. The cost is $12 per year.
We can now include advertising from non-Federated sources. The cost
is $10 per month, sent to the Federation treasurer. Send a full-page
PDF or JPEG file to your editor. We will include a set of thumbnails
in the "Advertising" section that link to your flyer.
