>>Dear Sir,
>>This last weekend we have held the 3rd edition of Folk, our folkdance
>>festival, and so we are ready to start preparing next year's edition, our
>>Folk 2001.
>>Platja d'Aro is a small town in the Costa Brava, a touristic region in
>>Catalonia. It is about 90 km. north of Barcelona and south of Perpignan
>>(in France), which are the closest international airports.
>>The Festival accounts for room and board (hosting each group in a
>>different hotel) from Friday night to Sunday afternoon. In case any group
>>might want to make their stay longer, the town's tourism board will
>>conctact its members to provide better rates for the participating groups.
>>The Festival will be held either the last weekend in May or the first in
>>June (it hasn't been yet decided). Each group will be assigned a "guide"
>>to help in solving any problems that may arise during the stay.
>>There is no limit as to the number of members that can come with each
>>grop, but it is usually 20-30. Music can be either live or on tape.
>>On Saturday morning we usually organize a trip to some interesting place
>>near Platja d'Aro, but the groups are not forced to attend (although
>>previous notice of their plans is always welcome). The first event is in
>>the afternoon: after a parade along the town's main street during which
>>each group stops twice (for about 2-3 minutes to perform a short easy
>>dance), we all perform on stage (usually outdoors) for 15-20 minutes.
>>Afterwards we all join for a dinner, where participants are asked to be
>>dressed in their traditional costumes. This is the chance for speeches and
>>gift exchange, if this is considered. The evening ususlly ends with the
>>groups teaching each other some dance or dancing all together in no
>>particular way.
>>On Sunday morning takes place the second performance (we are not sure is
>>preceded by a parade or not, yet), and the only difference between both
>>opf them is that the order in which the groups participate is inverted.
>>Groups may then go to have lunch, and have the rest of the afternoon to
>>plan their departure.
>>We hope you can forward this information to any groups in Scottland >>that
>>might be interested in participating, so they can get in touch >>with us.
>>Looking forward to hearing very soon from you,
>>David Salat.
>>
