THE WORLD’S GREATEST SQUARE DANCE EVENT OF 2010 WILL BE THE BEST EVER
One of the most important if not the most important part of a National Square Dance
Convention® is SOUND. If you cannot hear the caller/cuer/etc you do not enjoy the dance.
The 59th National Square Dance Convention® is doing everything possible to ensure that,
the best sound possible will be available and that everyone will be able to hear the
cuer/caller/etc. The owner for Yak Stacks, the premier speaker system preferred by most
callers, has been contracted to provide, set-up and maintain the sound systems in all
dance halls. In addition, eight of the dance halls will have a “Sound Enhancement System”
installed. The personnel involved have sounded 11 previous National Square Dance
Conventions®, most Mid-America Square Dance Jamborees that were also held at Kentucky
Exposition Center as well as many other major square dance events.
For those who are not familiar with “Sound Enhancement Systems” and how they are used in
square dancing, here is a brief explanation.
An FM transmitter is connected to the sound system. The transmitter broadcasts a radio
signal over a distance of 300-500 feet. The transmitter only broadcast the
cuer/caller/etc’s voice not the background music. Individual dancers can then use a small
FM radio and earphones to hear the caller/cuer/etc.
The sound can be received on any FM radio such as a small clip-on or Walkman type radio
with earphones. Most dancers already have a small portable FM radio with earphones they
can use. For dancers who do not have a FM radio they can use, radios will be available in
the vendor area.
Each of the eight dance halls will use a different frequency to broadcast so there will be
no interference between halls.
In some of the major halls the Williams Sound System will be used. This system has been
used in past conventions.
With the use of Yak Stacks speakers, Hilton turntables and Sound Enhancement Systems in
eight dance halls along with the most experienced sound crew available, we will ensure
every dancer will be able to easily hear and enjoy every minute of the 59th National
Square Dance Convention®.
With the best sound available, great facilities, friendly people, terrific food,
(including lots of delicious ice cream), and many great tours of the surrounding beautiful
and interesting sites, the 59th National Square Dance Convention® will be the best ever,
you do not want to miss this one, if you do you will be sorry. Dancers will be talking
about the 59th NSDC for many years, everyone who attends the convention will experience a
fabulous time and have special memories that will last a lifetime.
