In a message dated 4/23/2009 8:55:26 A.M. Pacific Daylight Time,
Could someone kindly confirm (or not) the Minicrib version of Terry
Glasspool's dance, Glenora Ferry?
"33-40 1s dance 1/2 Fig of 8 round 2s as 2s set & cross RH, 1s dance
1/2 Fig of 8 round 3s as 3s set & cross RH"
Considering the previous and following movements, this seems surprising.
Martin, here's the confirming equivalent from Eric Ferguson's "Dancecribs,"
which I always find quite clearly stated (and which I think that everyone
would be well off having).
33- 1C Â½Fig8 up âwhileâ 2C set & cross RH ; 1C Â½Fig8 down âwhileâ
3C set & cross RH (2,1,3)
We have danced The Glenora Ferry quite a bit hereabouts, and I have never
found anything particularly awkward either in flowing from what precedes
this figure or flowing into the next round from its conclusion; it's a good
(In the "kill two birds with one stone" department, I guess that this then
constitutes a "plug" [Americanism?] for both Terry and Eric.)
