A Pause for Thought
A few years ago Peter Morgan, Squire of Stafford MM, put the following Ten New Year Resolutions to his team:-
1. To do more dancing and less talking at practice.
2. To recognise the team’s dancing style is more important than individual interpretation.
3. To achieve the same standard of dancing as one comes to expect of the musicianship.
4. To support the team’s Officers – even if one does not always agree with them.
5. To promote a positive Morris image in public displays.
6. To support the team’s performance wherever feasible.
7. To promote good fellowship within the team and towards other Morris teams.
8. To think that other people are usually motivated by the best intentions.
9. To put as much into the team as one expects to get out.
10. To remember, above all, that Morris Dancing is fun.
Things worth pondering upon, don’t you think?!
