This edition, as many others, has been plagued with the usual round of technical difficulties, and unforeseen disasters, however, here we are …….. .

I must apologise in advance for articles not included in this issue. In particular for the Key figures in the Morris article supplied by Ian Craigs and Chris Metheral of High Spen, this was the main technical difficulty, and I assure you it will be published in the next issue. For others who are still waiting for their submissions to appear in print, please be patient, they will.

As this is the post AGM issue, it can of course not go without a mention ……… So nice to see so many sides attending, and blessed by good weather, a great weekend. I was lucky enough to be teamed up with Red Stags on the Saturday tour, which was nice, as not knowing too many people this time, and not dancing, it was good to be with some familiar company. Although only acquaintances, they all made me feel very welcome, and it was with great sadness that I received the news of David Pritchards death.
Thanks to Andy Anderson for his obituary.
