Dear all,

I look back over the 20+ years that I have been dancing and my imput on the
subject is simply this....

The RSCDS has done a good job of establishing a basis for Scottish Country
Dancing, providing research for older dances, and encouraging new dances. If
not for them, I don't think that we would have an even standard for dancing,
great music to which we dance, and friends who have made for an everlasting love
in an everchanging world.

As for those who take all of this a bit too seriously and believe that
footwork is superior to enthusiasm, I am sure that you would like to have it
renamed the "Rigid Scottish Country Dance Society."

See you on the dancefloor (or St. Andrews to enjoy a chocolate martini with
Stella...),

P.S. Pia - I think I just shot off at the mouth!
