DERT was in Preston last year, Bath the previous year. I believe Stevenage Sword always go to Straw Bear (having helped found it) and Stone Monkey go a lot too. EAst Saxon Sword have been a couple of times and you'll probably find other teams such as Wype Doles (the local team).

Jo-Jo
(Refresh) is when a thread has dropped off the edge of the page and you want to bring it back. Yoy could say bollocks if you like!
On the Sat a few rapper sides do a rapper tour of Whittlesea, criss crossing each other in the process. We (Southport Swords) do a sword tour, only this year with a bit off rapper thrown in. Rapper sides that I know are comming are Black Swan (I think), Penguin, Sallyport, Pecseaton, Stevanage, probably more.
I'll be at DERT either as an observer or with Lamb& Flag.

Hey Jo-Jo, take some time & look around the site. I'm clearly identified by my Profile on the Members Info pages (use the drop-down that shows the word Quicklinks at the top of the page), you can check my photo to see if you recognise me. Not all Members have put a Profile up although it would be nice if they did.

Have fun at Straw Bear everyone, gotta miss this year, but at least my feet won't be frozen!!

Really looking forward to it, will be our 6th year. We're struggling for a new pub this year - think we've done them all.
Hope it's cold and frosty, but weather forecast looks a bit rainy.

Didn't know about the profiles, will go and look up everybody! I will be wearing a pink hat with 3 bobbles - please come and say 'hi'. (not a dancer just a happy drinker)

My one abiding memory of my only trip to the Straw Bear was seeing Mick (MCP) standing in a state of shock on the Saturday morning. To say he was hungover was the understatement of the century and a hangover and the extremne cold just don't mix. He was one very white and shakey guy!

MGAS even had a note in her pocket reminding her not to drink too much on the Friday night. I did notice that she ignored it.

Ah yes, that note. It's getting quite ragged now as it's been around at lots of festivals & never seems to get noticed until the Saturday!

Yes, Mick did look decidedly unwell that day, can't imagine why.....

Anyway, have a Brill Straw Bear everyone & someone give Brian & Christine Kell a big Hug from me (better say Hilary Ward as they won't know MGAS)!!

Sorry Jo-Jo fed you duff info. I got confused, Pecseaton are not a rapper side. The are a cotswold side, although they may dance rapper?
The up to date list of official sides is........

Peterborough Morris & the Plough, Chiltern Hundreds, Sallyport Sword, Red Leicester Morris, Pengwyn Rapper, Rivington Morris,' Everards Old Original Ansty Morris, Old Glory Molly, Kick Start, Tanglefoot Appalachian P.R.A.T.S Sword, Stone Monkey Rapper, Pretty Grim Border Morris, Pigdyke Molly, Ramrugge Morris, East Suffolk Morris, Southport Swords, White Rose Morris, Witchmen Morris, Sir Harry's Sword (WD Jr's), Gog Magog Molly, New Road Molly, Cross Key Clog, The Kings Morris, Ouse Washes Molly, Pecsaetan Morris, Persephone Bradford Ladies Morris, The Molly Gang from Good Easter, Haganeth Morris, Mid Winter Mummers, Rutland Morris, Chelmsford Morris, Stevenage Sword, Ely & Littleport Riot, Bourne Borderers.

All these molly sides, I wonder if any of them has thought of the name 'Good Golly Miss Molly'?
As for where to start our evening perambulations, we will probably deceide that after we have stuffed ourselves at the indian. If you see anyone in kit in the evening, grab them & they may know where someone is.
Cheers
Les

Thanks for the list of sides, I usually have to wait until I get my programme.
I thought I knew about the dances but you've confused me. What's the difference between 'sword' and 'rapper' I thought they were the same.
We (Southport Swords) do a sword tour, only this year with a bit off rapper thrown in.

I'll look out for you tomorrow (are you the same LesB who's on the Demon Barbers board?)

Hi Mrs Annie, yes it is I wot is on the Demon's board. If you want any more info on Sword dancing see our website Southport Swords .

Just got back from Whittlesea (after a nightmare journey getting there, we were caught in a 1 1/2 hr delay at Grantham after an accident). Our Sat evening tour started at the Bee & then we went to the Railway where we shared the pub with an Irish session. We ended up staying there all evening because we are made so welcome. Sallyport went into the Bee as we left & stayed there all eve.
I dont know about anyone else.
Next gig Liverpool Beer Festival.

Got held up by a bad accident on the A1 too (closed in both directions and no diversions indicated) and nearly got smashed by a frustrated lorry driver who objected to my slowing down to try and find a right turn which would head me back in the right direction - he was driving too close to even see my indicator!
The (relatively) warm weather brought out the crowds but it was sad to see The George boarded up - spent Saturday night in The Boat in the song session ably hosted by Derek and Mary with a "guest" performance by the Landlord.
Some great dancing outside and INSIDE the Bricklayers!
Thanks to everyone
