    Where is the Royal Scottish Dance Society

    A lot will depend an the audience.  If you are speaking (writing) to 
    non-dancers, surely you would refer to the Royal Scottish Dance Society, 
    i.e. singular.   But if using RSCDS (speaking to people who know what the 
    acronym means),  then the organisation indicates a plural.  However, 
    "Where is the RSCDS?" would mean where are they at this time - but "Where 
    was the RSCDS?" meaning where were they then?
    (Just  throwing another spanner!)
