Squares Around Victoria
The official journal of the V.S.D.A. is called “Squares Around Victoria” or, as it is more commonly known, the “SAV”. The current version is produced as an A5 magazine with approximately 30 pages per month and contains all the latest information on clubs & Square Dancing in Victoria. It also advertises events for the clubs, the V.S.D.A., the Victorian Callers Association (V.C.A.) & the Round Dance Association of Victoria (R.D.A.V.), along with containing reports from the clubs & associated bodies.
Squares Around Victoria is currently published 12 times a year (as of 1/1/18). Previously, there were only 10 issues per year. The SAV was first started in 1972 in a quarto-sized format. It was hand-typed on stencils and then printed on an old Gestetner-type machine, before being collated & stapled. A lot of dedication was needed to produce each copy. Today’s modern version is now produced on a laptop computer before being emailed to a printer, who produces the beautiful magazine we get today. These are then couriered back to the editor to be enveloped, addressed & mailed for subscribers to receive at the beginning of each month. Since the start of 2019, a pdf version has been available via email for members. At the 2021 A.G.M., the decision was made to phase out the printed version of the S.A.V. due to the increasing costs & decreasing number of subscriptions (for the printed version). This will be done over the next 3 years.
Old issues of the S.A.V. are available on the Square Dance Australia website (click button for link).
