Thread Name: Morris joins the Dodo?
Subject: RE: Morris joins the Dodo?
I don't have anything agains the Ring, actually. As someone said, they preserve one very important aspect of the tradition and all power to their collective elbow. But it and the Morris Federation exist side by side, and I believe that the Fed has more affiliated sides these days (am I right?). To gain an accurate picture of the state of morris dancing, the Fed's statistics are really needed. I suspect a lot of younger members belong to Fed-associated sides, but maybe I'm wrong.
