Website Notes  (26/6/20).

 1.  Assuming we continue to act carefully the threat of contracting coronavirus appears to be reducing at a remarkably fast rate! However before our form of dance can be restarted the statistics will require to indicate almost zero risk? Indoors, 30 to 120 folk all dancin’, R&L, set & turn cornrs, the poussette, circle Rnd & Bk , birlin’, all wearing masks hardly fits the bill meantime -  a pipedream, I think so! -  but at this rate of improvement perhaps we might not have to await a vaccine!! Is a Christmas dance night something we can look forward to; just a remote possibility??

 2.  A best possible development soon - 8 of us get together, outdoor but under cover, two piece band if possible all dancing to an average difficulty programme? A register of all attending would be a requirement. Worth the trouble? Too much to hope? Any other ideas? Anythin’ to just git dancin’.

 It’s good golfing/bowling/garden centres are back but nothing beats a good-fun dance with a good partner to great music with like-minded folk. There will be a Danceboy re-statement end June 2020.  Byeeee…….
