West Coast A&C

Revision as of 14:01, 31 July 2011 by P00h2you2 (talk | contribs) (Formatting, and filling in of some information.)

Each year since 1990, a West Coast IAGSDC club has hosted an Advanced & Challenge fly-in - aka A/C Weekend.

Hosting the West Coast A/C Weekend is more of a casual tradition than a formally defined event. There is no selection process for each year's location. Generally speaking, dancers represented by the clubs at the event each year informally discuss who will host the following year's A/C weekend.

Other Advanced & Challenge Fly-Ins

There is also an annually held East Coast Advanced & Challenge fly-in. Since 2000, it has been called ACDC.

There is no official connection between the two events.
