At 43, I don't think of myself as a »senior citizen«, and I hope that those
people on this list that I have had the pleasure to dance with will confirm
that I'm still fairly fleet of foot. However, running after the music the way
the Bobby Brown RotRS recording seems to require is not my personal idea of
the »natural joyfulness of SCDancing«. I prefer a slightly slower tempo that
still lets me enjoy both the music and the movement without having to pant. As
I said, the Reel of Seven recording is just fine as far as I'm concerned. To
each their own.

Before playing, [the piper] must make sure his Bagpipe is tuned, this should
always be done between dances and not when the competition is in progress.
