    Where are the RSCDS???

    For the first time in many years I attended the Perth Musical Festival.  
    Having competed there many years ago I was particulaly interested in seeing the  
    adult team performances. What a shock NO RSCDS Teams entered at all, normally 
    we  would have had 8 - 10 teams competing - Where were Perth, Dundee,  
    Dunfermline, Kirkcaldy, St Andrews, Pitlochry RSCDS branch teams, can't  they stand 
    the pressure, and the  ajudicators criticism, or are they too  busy 
    demonstrating. Or are they getting too old to compete??
     
    An ideal showcase was presented to the society with like minded people to  
    promote the cause but only non-society teams turned up. Even in the junior  
    section only a Perth and Perthshire team turned up!!! out of the whole area.  What 
    has happened to all the work done promoting childrens classes?
    An excellent performance of Macdonald of Sleat was given by two teams  of 
    Mothers and Daughters. Young girls of 8 and ten dancing with their  mothers. 
    Surely there is an opening there to encourage dancers. 
     
    An enjoyable evening but a big disappointment that RSCDS were noticibly  
    absent
