Subject: RE: Morris joins the Dodo?
Hmmm... the Earl of Stamford Morris (I'm Chief Musician) have a healthy influx of youngsters...

Until three of them went to University a couple of months ago we were able to field a junior side ranging from 12 years old to 18 years old, complete with melodeon player (15 years old).

We're a mixed Cotswold side currently dancing Lichfield, Adderbury, Badby and Stanton Harcourt traditions.

Oh, and our sticks are like pickaxe handles...!

Border Morris and Rapper seem to attract youngsters, too - I think North West Morris is struggling to find young blood, though.
