Dance Held at the Commodore Hotel on 29 March 2019



On a pleasantly surprising rain free night in Helensburgh the welcome and introduction were given by  Vice President John Johnston in the absence on holiday of President Neil MacLeod.


Playing on the night were the Lomond Ceilidh Band, minus their usual fiddler and with a second box filling in. Notwithstanding the change in lineup the music produced was of the highest quality and special mention is due to the perfect tempo for the Viennese Swing, something which other bands have often struggled with. Dancing progressed apace through the advertised programme and a couple of extra dances were fitted in.


Numbers on the night were on a par with those of February's dance with 53 members and 2 non members attending.


The raffle raised a total of £150, somewhat more than last month, and, as ever, thanks to those donating prizes and purchasing tickets.


Closing remarks were given by John Johnston and the evening ended in traditional fashion with a last waltz and Auld Lang Syne.


Our next event will be a dance in the Osprey Suite of the Commodore on 26 April 2019 with music provided by the  Roy Hendrie Scottish Dance Band. All welcome as ever.
