Wow! It's a while since we've had such a full night, with so many new people as well as very welcome returnees. All the new comers were dropped in at the deep end with a vengeance - they seemed to come bobbing back up with a smile on their faces, but if they found the evening a challenge then hopefully it will reassure them to know that most of the class felt the same! It wasn't the easiest of programmes. If new people can manage such complex stuff they aren't going to have any problems with anything more we can hit them with. The rest of the class also surpassed themselves because it is always an extra challenge having to think for more than one. The dance we walked through at the end, but didn't get time to dance, was 'Gang the Same Gate', it'll be on the programme again next week, so get studying, and don't forget to just watch one person at a time if you are trying to learn the dance from YouTube.
It seems incredible that it's only 10 days since our O;/'';/ (sorry that was the cat trying to help me type) own brilliant Burns Night especially since, at Pat's invitation, Pete and I travelled over to Kyrenia last weekend to attend the Caledonian Society's Burns' Supper - a completely different affair but a great laugh, several people we met there were very interested in attending some of our future events so it was worth going on many levels.
Now we are full steam ahead to the AGM this weekend, there is lots to discuss and decide, but hopefully it wont take long because there's a great Debbie Dinner at the end of it, free to members and still only €12 to anyone else, so don't miss it. Jx
