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 RAE
