are made some members will be upset, disappointed or questioning. May I
say that I have the highest regard for Marjorie McLaughlin (who started this

I'm sure her comment was curiosity rather than criticism. I also think
that Alan Mair has given us a kind, thoughtful and informative explanation
of the obviously careful, considerate and fair way by which the book dances
I have not had a chance to dance them all yet but most certainly Culla Bay
and Pelorus Jack are favorites of mine.
