If I'd written last week's blethers, this week, it would have been as apt as then. We welcomed both more returnees and some great dancing newcomers to the class and it was lovely to see that last week's challenging moments hadn't put anyone off because, wow, they were all up for it again! Everyone enjoyed the simpler dances and we made a good enough go at 'Gang the Same Gate' for people to walk of the floor saying "that's a beautiful dance", which indeed it is, despite being unusually challenging for a Tuesday night Strathspey. The other tricky dances on the programme were bravely attempted and created enough hilarity to be enjoyed at a very different level... but people got the idea of the formations and we won't have too much trouble perfecting things next week, if, of course, we get the same people in the same place... which is a tad unlikely, but it'll still be fun.
The AGM is now under our belt for 2018 (quite literally when you consider Debbie's superb carvery that we were treated to by the Society) and congratulations are due to the returning Committee. They are great team so it's a real benefit that they are all willing to keep going in these difficult times. Talking of difficult times, there were none as far as the meeting was concerned; the discussions were open and constructive - even when it was difficult to reach a conclusion due to situations outside our control and the room retired to feast in a friendly manner which epitomised the society well. Long may we continue in that vein. Jx
