Dance Held at the Commodore Hotel on 26 October 2018

 

 

A healthy attendance of 66 members and 12 guests braved a distinctly chilly but thankfully rain free evening to attend the event at the Commodore, bringing in a total of £648 in entrance fees. Originally intended to be a ceilidh evening, due to lack of interest of the members it was instead a night of dancing to the music of the ever reliable Wullie Scott. Looking rather lonely on the stage after a late cancellation by a fellow band member, Wullie nevertheless filled the hall with some great music (amazing the volume, variety and richness of sound a single accordion combined with modern technology can produce!) and, to his credit, had mastered the modern waltz tempo for Waltz Catherine after some confusion at his last appearance.

 

Regrettably there was some delay in the serving of teas and coffees at the interval due to a strange miscalculation of the volumes required on the part of the Commodore – one small teapot and coffee flagon were totally inadequate for the numbers requiring to be served and there were lengthy delays in providing refills. Apologies to those kept waiting for refreshments. On the plus side the raffle raised a grand total of £202 and thanks go to those who contributed to the prizes.

 

Our next function will be a dance on 30 November in the Osprey Suite of the Commodore Hotel with music provided by the Wayne Robertson Scottish Dance Band. All welcome as ever.
