Thread Name: Morris joins the Dodo?
Subject: RE: Morris joins the Dodo?
HHmmmmm. Interesting!

I seem to recall that I posted a thread HERE in the middle of last year, that related to Morris numbers, attracting new blood etc. (Some very good comments and suggestions).

HOWEVER!!! As important as this is - most of the contributors to this thread so far, have missed the point of the original article/item, and that is, here we go - DO we have some form of Morris representation in the Opening/Closing ceremonies of the 20012 Olympics??? DO we stand up and say that we are proud to be carry on a tradition????? DO we stand tall with the traditions that other contries take for granted???? OR, OR, OR!!!!!! Do we just bitch about who is right or wrong/will we survive or not/Ring or Federation - "Who's The Daddy??"

The newscaster on the One O'clock News obviously found it highy funny. We need respect from the public. To get to that stage, we need to get respect for each other's chosen type of dancing from eack other FIRST!!!!

Can we please not get bogged down? Can we please try and help each other/each side/whatever, to get a slot in the games that we can be/and bloody well should be, PROUD OF!!!!
