Dear Contra Callers community,
This list has been going since 2004! It’s hard to believe. Chris and I are grateful to
everyone here in our community who has worked hard to make this a welcoming, supportive
Chris and I are excited to be working with CDSS, and with the four new lists joining the
Shared Weight community.
Check out this article in the CDSS News to learn about the Shared Weight renewal.
Also - check out the brand new Shared Weight website: https://www.sharedweight.net
What does the renewal mean for the Contra Callers list?
* There is a new email address to use when you want to send messages to the list
(though the old one still works too): contracallers(a)lists.sharedweight.net
* Our list has a renewed vision. Check it out here:
* The partnership among the various list founders and CDSS has created a stronger team
to support this list into the future.
Other than that, our list remains the same supportive community that it’s always been.
We encourage you to spread the news and invite others to join the list!
* IMPORTANT: When you respond to a post on the list, please remember to trim off old
replies. It will make it much easier for others to use our list, especially those that
receive the digest version.
* You can access the full list archives at:
* The Shared Weight team is excited to announce the official renewal launch of our
mailing list servers for traditional dance, music, and song -- including this list!
* Instructions on this page to set up an account:
* You should set up an account to manage your settings (e.g., change between receiving
each emails or receiving the digest version of the list). If you are interested, go to
this page to set up an account https://www.sharedweight.net/about/technical-faqs/
Sorry - old usernames & passwords no longer work given the move to a new server.
Thanks for your continued support of the Contra Callers list!
