Scottish Country Dancer Magazine
The promised 'January' edition of the 'Scottish Country Dancer' magazine has just arrived in the post. I note it is dated as Spring 2006 therefore it is early in arriving here but I guess very late in other parts of the world. There is a full page from Chris Ronald (New York) giving an overview of discussions on this forum and an official photograph of 'birling' at the AGM. Seems it's OK for 'young' dancers to do. There is comment on the New Manual together with a correction to page 66: 6.23.2. of the first printing. Problems with the database for mailing out Member copies are highlighted with the plea for anyone not receiving their copy, or receiving too many copies, to get in touch. Interestingly there is an article by Jimmie Hill (Editor of the Scottish Country Dancer) about the Scotland on Sunday Newspaper article of 1st January 2006 in which he laments that there were no letters from dancers sent in reply to the article?? He goes on to ask what should our response be? Has he not been reading this forum and Pia's replies? Are all editor's out of touch? Looks just as interesting as the first issue.
