18 Oct - BAASDC - A Tribute to Chris Allen.

The untimely passing of Chris Allen has left a big hole in the lives of many people, not only his family but all of his many friends within the Square Dance world.

In the short time Chris was editor of "Let's Square Dance" and web master he transformed both the magazine and web site to the extent that it is recognised as the best that Europe has to offer, a remarkable achievement in such a short time and is testament to his abilities.

My sincere condolences go to the family he leaves behind and his many close friends.

John Webb

President - BAASDC
