    Re: The RSCDS dance publication process (was: Tunes for "Hornpipes Suitable for Catch the Wind" on the "More Memories.....)

    It may be of interest, and I apologise for coming to this late, but have 
    been at St Andrews for the RSCDS Summer School, with additional holiday 
    before and after. [Incidentally the classes were differently organised this 
    year and I regard it as a significant improvement.]
    
    I was consulted by the Society about both the tune and content details for 
    "Alan J Smith", when it was submitted by Bristol Branch for consideration 
    for inclusion in Book 45. The Branch naturally informed me that it was their 
    choice.
    
    May I add that the suggestion was made in class at St Andrews, in the year 
    of publication, by our teacher , Christine Mair,  that the dancing couple 
    give nearer hands briefly as they come round together from turning the third 
    couple and before they go in to the double triangles formation.
    I am thoroughly in favour of this and, as I said at the time, wish that I 
    had thought of it for myself.
