Sadly, it has come to my attention that there has been some unwanted attention being paid to members of our otherwise safe and friendly community.  Please know that inappropriate behaviour of any kind will not be tolerated and if someone is making you feel uncomfortable you can come to me, Shelley, Nelson, Kyle, Lucky or Joanna – at any time, with any concern.  There is, I think, and unwritten code of conduct in the West Coast Swing community, and “outsiders” may not get it.  If there’s some ‘splaining to do, we’ll take care of it. 😊
