    Re: contact details

    Hi Pia
    Is that the group that Roshen used to teach?????
    I might have her in the wrong area.
    Now if you had asked the Strathspey Server group first, I bet you would have 
    got the information you needed.
    
    That said: I am still looking for the 2 dances requested the other day. I 
    have been in touch with Glasgow and no repsonse from them either. So there 
    you have it.
    Cheers
    Marie
