Dancing with visiting Brasstown, USA teams
7th June 2001

The teams from Brasstown, North Carolina visited our area in June, and we had the pleasure of hosting the Schreiber family.

The two teams are Rural Felicity (garland dancers) and Sticks-in-the-Mud (border morris).

On 6th June, OBJ, Shinfield Shambles, Hurst Morris, Rural Felicity and Sticks-in-the-Mud danced at the Jolly Farmer in Hurst and a good time was had by all.

The OBJ members present were Angela, Anne, Chris, Colin, Dave K, Dave D, Doug, Gill, Ian F, Ian O, Jennie, Jim J, Jim M, Judy, Liz, Louise, Lynne, Mike S, Pam, Richard, Roger, Ruth and Vera.

There had been a lot of late nights for the Schreibers.

We discovered James Schreiber happily asleep in a pile of rag jackets under a table.
