Такое письмо пришло.

Камрады, читайте, что нам RSCDS пишет.

Dear Branch Secretary

In recent months we have been reviewing the Society’s publications and decided that for 2019 there will be no book of ‘new dances’ published by the Society. Instead we propose that the next ‘new’ book will be a collection of 30 popular dances. This book will complement the original “30 Popular Scottish Country Dances” published in the late 1990s and listed below.

With this in mind we would appreciate your branch’s help and guidance as to what is popular!

We would like suggestions of up to 10 dances to include a mixture of Jigs, Reels and Strathspeys that are popular in your branch for consideration to be included in the book.

The dances in the original book were all traditional dances taken from RSCDS publications covering the period up to Book 27. In contrast we aim for the contents of the new book to include a mix of traditional and non-traditional dances. We do not wish to restrict the list to dances previously published by the Society so will welcome popular dances from other sources. We will, however, have to bear in mind at the final selection phase the issue of copyright as ultimately it may not be possible to include some dances that are obviously popular but present copyright issues.

As you will appreciate we anticipate getting far more dances than we will have room for but hopefully the submitted dances will provide us with a good indication of what is popular!

Если коротко, то просят прислать им список из 10 наших самых любимых танцев. Высылайте личные ТОР-10, а я сведу их в один методом простого подсчета.

Камрады, такое письмо пришло от Майка Гринвуда. Будьте внимательны!!!

Dear Colleagues,

I would like to pass along some important information regarding a recent fraudulent scheme and ask that you please make us aware of any communications that contain any of the below details.

The following is a message from RSCDS Chairman Helen Russell:

“Branch Treasurers, please be aware that your branch bank account may be the target of a fraudulent scheme. A message just received from one of our Branches said:

Last Thursday our Treasurer was notified by the bank that someone was setting up a Standing Order on the Branch account for £200, payable to "The Community Foundation for Wiltshire”. Our Treasurer, had never heard of this and after a bit of ringing around decided it was a scam.

It struck me that somebody may be targeting RSCDS Branches. The setting up of the Standing Order was paper based and did not involve the internet so presumably could have used details from our renewal form on the Branch website and widely circulated to existing members.

We thank you for your cooperation and if you have any questions please get in touch at your earliest convenience.”
