 1.  Good first night at Pitlochry with Frank Thomson’s Band. A hot night in the Town Hall with 5 sets of knowledgeable dancers! Three visitors from Canada enjoyed us enjoying ourselves and said they would ‘look into’ scottish country dancing in Vancouver! Next visit perhaps they’ll join us!

 2. A very successful Dunfermline Summer Ball was enjoyed on Fri 2/6/23 in The Glen Pavilion in Pittencrieff Park with a welcome return of Frank Thomson and his band! The meal and the catering were excellent, all dances briefly called no dances omitted from the programme! Well done to the committee - more of the same please! Well done to the MC and the tribute to Janette McSporran was very appropriate and well delivered.

 3.  Dunfermline Branch has published its three Summer Dance programmes, a Summer Ball in memory of Janette MacSporran (crib available) and announced the welcome return of the Dunfermline Picnic Dance on 28/6/23!! Clackmannanshire Branch have announced their joint Branches Dance (with Falkirk) and the Cochrane Hall in Alva Summer Dancing dates. See their respective websites.

 4. Glasgow City Council has very kindly organised a Civic reception for a Glasgow Branch Centenary Ball in the the City Chambers on Friday 24th November 2023 - see Glasgow Branch website for tickets and details.
