Newsletter Spring 2013

If you are having problems sourcing durable sticks (we all know broomsticks are useless!) then there’s some valuable advice. The Antipodes are well represented in this issue, with an account of a visit down under by a couple of Beetlecrushers, and an initiation into Molly Dancing by a City of Auckland Dancer.  Everybody involved in Longsword, from whichever morris organisation, will be aware of the priceless contribution to the preservation and promotion of the tradition by the late Ivor Allsop.
