Here is the pre AGM edition of the Newsletter, and every effort has been made to distribute it before the event this year. Delays inevitably occur at this holiday time of year, but here’s hoping.

Lots of contributions from you the members again this time, which is great, . Don’t forget that you can write in about any event, no matter how big or small, even if you have not organised it, so keep the articles rolling in.

If you have submitted something which has not appeared in this issue, please don’t worry, it will be published, but it may have been received after the copy date.

In this edition: Presidents Prologue: Janet Dowling reviews dancing at Sidmouth, and the voluntary running of the Federation.
General: Beth Neill considers the AGM, and a reminder to keep the photos coming for the year book.
Financial Services: Rachel Pinkney has reminders about procedure when ordering from the shop and about Public Liability Insurance, together with a thought about etiquette.
Archive: Lynne Rogers still advertises the Archive Officers post, and tells us about the latest acquisitions to the archive.
Events: There are two workshops taking place in November, both on 21st. The first, is the Westmorland Clog workshop to be held near Kendal, hosted by Westmorland Step & Garland Dancers, and taught by Chris Coe, The second is a Border Workshop hosted by Oyster Morris, taking place in Faversham, and taught by John Lewis.
Kesteven Morris in France: Marion Ellis writes about the teams award winning visit to Issoire’s 13th International Folkdance Festival.
Rainbow Morris Day of Dance: Jo Buck gives here account of this years day of dance.
Scarborough Fayre: Jenny Howard of Bedfordshire Lace and Louise Giddens of Panaggerty Morris both write about this event, which despite the weather drew lots of interest, and was obviously enjoyed by all.

Morris and the Dome: an update from Janet Dowling on your response to last issues request for teams to dance at the Millennium Dome.
