#Citation: Morris Federation Newsletter, Spring 2000,


Here’s our first Newsletter of 2000.John Bacon gives his first introduction as the new President of the Federation, and updates information on the Dome.

Rachel Pinkney has an important plea about the punctual return of registration and insurance forms.

Most importantly, information and booking form for the AGM 2000 hosted by Ryknild Rabble.

A second North West dance for six dancers from Trefor Owen, to keep you busy in the run up to the start of the season.

From Westmorland Step and Garland dancers, an article about their trip to Germany, from Three Shires, details of their tenth nniversary celebrations, and from Cathy Sharman, a write up of the Border Workshop held last November in Kent.

We continue the occasional series ‘Key Figures in the Morris’ with a history of Fred Forster by Ian Craigs and Chris Metherel. This is a series of articles which we would like to continue, so please, if there is someone about whom you wish to write then please do so.

There is also information about the Gloucester Pipe & Tabor symposium, Hastings Jack in the Green and Devon Morris events in April.

Another series which we wish to continue is that of Youth, so please once again send in information photos and articles about your young people dancing, playing, and generally being involved in Morris Dancing.

Our next issue will be due out in June, so please send details and photos of your May Day events. Last year, sadly, we did not have a single item about May Day, so please, even if you don’t want to write an article, send a picture.

A reminder to note the change of committee members and addresses, also, please note Rhian Collinson (Notation Officer) change of address and e-mail.

Closing date for submissions for the next issue is 10th May, and the Newsletter should appear on 1st June.

If your article does not appear in this issue, my apologies, it will next time.

Happy Dancing
Jude Barrett
