Hi Malcolm

I stand corrected - to a certain extent, but with all due respect - is the
North Ayrshire Anniversary Album widely distributed - are you absolutely
certain that this publication will have reached all dancers world-wide? If
so, then of course we should call the formation by its given name.

And what's a Bourrel?

Showing my ignorance? :>)
