NRE Change of venue

David Trueman has had to change the venue of his competition on 21st February from Bloxwich to the Cheslyn Hay Sport Centre, Saredon Rd, WS6 7JQ.  NREs for Juvenile Ballroom, Youth Ballroom and Senior I Ballroom are to be held at this event.

EADA Website hiatus

EADA's webmaster sincerely apologises for the long outage of the website.  We are making every effort to make sure this does not happen again.

Why did it happen?

The new website was built on a temporary server provided by another provider, as the old server did not support the Content Management System (or any CMS for that matter) that we wished to move to.  There was then a physical hardware failure on the server.
