The basic aims of the journal are:-
Fast access to the Mickel, Martice, Pitlochry and Red Deer websites are provided.
This new site evolved from the ex-
Club’s proud history by providing an account of its history and providing access to its photograph
We are here -

1. The ‘Hits Count’ page has been updated to reveal a significant drop in website usage at home and abroad! The Covid scare impacted substantially; usage seem to recover but is now approx 67% of previous highs. More dancers appear to be converting to graphical crib sheets making copying my own personal crib sheets less appealing!
2. A mystery informal dance, good programme, good band, has been organised for Sat 11/2/23 in Torryburn Community Centre, near Dunfermline. Matthew Maclellan’s Band and the Torryburn Hall has been booked! Due to limited hall space please contact Trish (contact details are included in the flyer) to reserve a ticket. Click here for the flyer. Click here for a MiniCrib crib sheet.
4. Just updated my 2023 summer dance diary thanks to info from Mary Cant & Alasdair Graham. It’s going to be a busy summer season!! Big improvement in most dance programmes! Alan Munro’s annual Killearn dance on 17/3/23 is back!! The Dunfermline Picnic Dance (28/6/23) also makes a welcome return!! Also see Note 2 -
For all intents and purposes it appears we have reached an acceptable level of normality regarding our Scottish Country Dancing consequently this ALERT will be discontinued but note the intention to make some parts of the Bill permanent -
‘An Epitaph’ by Robert Burns -
Epitaph on a Wag in Mauchline
Lament 'im Mauchline husbands a',
He aften did assist ye;
For had ye staid whole weeks awa'
Your wives they ne're had miss'd ye.
Ye Mauchline bairns as on ye pass,
To school in bands thegither,
O tread ye lightly on his grass,
Perhaps he was your father.
Glasgow Branch Nice’n Easy Dance now added to ‘My Crib Sheets’ for Friday 10th February 2023 !!
