Information about a Morris or Sword Side (Team)

Use this form to submit information about your morris or sword side (team) for inclusion in Jeff Bigler's listing. If you include a URL, the web site will also be included in Rich Holmes's and John Maher's collections of morris- and sword-related links.

Note: if you would like to submit information about a web site that is not specific to a particular morris or sword side, please use the morris-related website info form instead.

If this is a new listing, please fill in as many of the fields as you can. If this is an update, you may fill in only the fields that have changed, with the exceptions that fields shown in red are required in order for the form to process your entry, and fields shown in dark green are requested even if the information has not changed, in order to make it easier to process the information. You may find it convenient to open the Morris & Sword Side Information Page in a separate window so you can cut and paste information.

Note about spam and email addresses: Jeff Bigler, Rich Holmes, and John Maher all do our best to strike a balance between making contact information available to other dancers/sides and protecting it from spammers. Some ways of protecting email addresses include generating wiki pages on the fly from PHP scripts and disguising email addresses, such as jcb [at] mit [dot] edu. However, please keep in mind that there is no way to keep any information on the internet 100% safe from spammers.

Web Site

Note: If your side doesn't have a web site, skip this section. (Leave "yes" checked for both of the following questions.)

If your side has a web site, is it already listed correctly on Rich Holmes's page of morris links? yes no don't know

If your side has a web site, is it already listed correctly on John Maher's Mainly Morris Dancing page? yes no don't know

Please double-check that the above URL is complete and correct. (E.g., watch for files ending with ".htm" vs. ".html".) If there is a typo, it is often impossible to determine what the correct URL should have been.

Note from Jeff Bigler about logos: Because the logos were the most time-consuming part of maintaining my listing, I have had to stop including them. I enjoyed having the logos on the page, and would have preferred to keep them, but they were the one part that I wasn't able to automate.
