Re: What happened?
Jim was too modest to report on the social functions: they were most enjoyable, and an exciting experience for a first-time attendee. Over 500 dancers on the floor (probably a conservative estimate) at times, and superb acoustics inside the splendid dome of the Bells sports centre. Both bands, David Cunningham for the Friday ball, and the Colin Dewar Quartet for Saturday's dance, gave us amazingly danceable music. The only criticism would be the supper facilities, and the time the third sitting had to wait, but it was a good supper, and it gave one the chance to socialise. It wasn't feeding the 5,000, but I bet the catering staff felt as if they had been. The crib (or "cheat", as I think some call them) booklets were handily sporran/evening bag sized and very welcome, and will make a souvenir of a memorable weekend. Thank you, Perth Branch.
