23rd April
St George's Day at The Bramshill Hunt
with Ellington Morris

Possibly the first time OBJ has ever danced on astro-turf!

OBJ Comprised: Ali, Ann, Chris, Chris D, Claudia, Eddie, Joe, Liz, Mike G, Philip, Tony, Vera - and maybe more


Witchmens Thistle gets started. 

Ann and Mike G are the whackers-up
Crossovers
The sticking chorus
The hey-on-the-side

And finally, the Thistle


21st May
The Beehive, White Waltham
with Taeppa's Tump Morris

First time at this busy pub. The car parking was a bit of a challenge, but once we'd settled in, we had a really nice evening

OBJ Comprised: Ali, Ann, Chris, Chris D, Claudia, Eddie, Emma, Ian, Joe, Lawre, Liz, Mike G, Mike S, Nikki, Philip, Tony and Vera


Much Gridlock (quite appropriate after the difficulties with parking!)
 
Chris, Mike G, Liz and Ali on this side 

In the band are Joe, Nikki, Chris D, Colin, Lawre, Mike S and Vera (hidden in this picture)
Later in the same dance
The Bay Horse

Eddie, Emma and Mike G in the foreground.

Philip has joined the band, and Vera is still hiding!


Brimfield as the light starts to fade

Tony, Ann, Claudia and Ian are nearest

This time, Vera is just visible

Probably a Worcester Monkey
Here are Taeppa's from earlier in the evening
And their band.

Later, John showed me the superb melodeon he'd made during a 9-day course
And the sun slowly sets over White Waltham and OBJ

Hay-on-Wye, with Ali and Liz nearest



3rd June
The Crooked Billet, Gardeners Green
with Kennet Morris

We haven't danced at this pub for several years, so with a bit of encouragement from the new Landlord/Landlady we scraped together a side to dance with Kennet on a Monday evening.

A jolly good time was had by all, including the midges who dined well on all of us!

OBJ Comprised: Ali, Ann, Chris, Chris D, Claudia, Eddie, Ian, Joe, Lawre, Liz, Mike G, Nikki, Philip, Tony and Vera


Matron Clive and Kennet
Witchmens Thistle, I think

Philip and Ann in the foreground
Probably the same dance

Philip and Ann are in the same positions


Definitely the end of Witchmens Thistle

It's getting dark and the midges have tasted blood!
Another Kennet dance
Brimfield

Ann, Ian, Phillip and Clare

Avril came along to watch Lawre with their two grandsons, and we were joined by the lady mayor
