If some clubs seem to feature regularly in Newsletter articles while other clubs never appear it is largely down to the efficiency or otherwise of the club’s publicity officer. I make a selection for publication basically from what I receive – in practice almost all submissions get published. So, if there is something of general interest in which your side is involved, please let me have some pics and an article.
What is it, I wonder, that impels intelligent people to to forego the warmth and comfort of a fireside armchair to dance on a windswept pub forecourt in the depths of winter? Last year I battled through snow and ice to maintain our Boxing Day dancing ‘tradition’ at our favourite rural pub. No such problem this year, but with family commitments and so on reducing available numbers to single figures I was expecting a fairly low-key event. Well, my spirits were uplifted way beyond all expectations. Though small in number gave a full and enjoyable performance to an appreciative audience. I wouldn’t have given a thought of swapping it for my armchair by the fire!
In this issue there is an added bonus – two extra pages containing Paul White’s column (arrived too late for printed edition) and some extra photographs. Another advantage of the on-line magazine is that all the photographs are in colour, rather than just the cover and possibly inside centre pages. So, all of you who are happy to access the on-line Newsletter, please tell all your colleagues how to find it and extol its advantages!
Please note: The newsletter archive is currently under reconstruction, so not all issues are currently available online. If you are looking for a particular newsletter, please contact Sam Ross (Newsletter editor).
