A Visit to the Colonies

Greetings from England!

I am hoping to contact someone who might be able to help - briefly, I dance with a mixed Border Morris Side (Wreckers Morris) based in the South West of England and we are planning to come over to Rhode Island in August 2008 following an invitation from Ladies of the Rolling Pin (LORPs). LORPs (RI) visited England a year or so ago and were hosted by us and others. They are hosting and arranging dancing venues for us for a few days and I have the task of trying to approach any other Morris sides, within reasonably close proximity of Rhode Island, who would be up for meeting up with us and dancing - I would initially like to perhaps arrange a mini tour - again just for 2/3 days. In total, Wreckers would like to dance for one week and then have free time for those of us who can stay on for a holiday.

The team in its natural element...

We hope to be a group of approximately 27 (which includes some partners), which is quite a daunting task! Any help or advice you can give me would be very much appreciated, to say the least! We hope to make some new friends amongst other sides who, of course, may like to visit the South West of England and dance and stay with us?? If you cannot help, can you suggest another contact please?

Many thanks, Lois
