In Cyprus selling tickets for an event in June is hard work - it's not that people don't want to attend, it's just that so many regulars at the dancing sessions head back to the UK, or get a quick holiday in before the flight prices escalate that you start feeling like there's no-one still here at all. In the end it was satisfying to achieve more than 50 tickets sold - and I'm sure that next year it won't be so much hard work because it was a fabulous night. The setting was wonderful, the food excellent and the weather very, very kind - just warm enough to stop 'sitters out' from freezing, but cool enough to dance, and we danced, and danced - people who swore when they arrived that they never danced were up 2 or 3 times and after hours of hard work getting the music ready to play with our new speakers it was gratifying to be able to control everything - use the mics, change the music, and baring one or two minor hiccups feel that it all went incredibly well. It was a fitting end to an amazing season for the St Andrew Society - though of course there are many things still to come - watch, well lots of spaces on the website.
