We had a truly magical night at the Elea Golf Club. We were situated on two of the lower terraces which provided a lovely setting. The area was decorated as usual by our dedicated St Andrew Society decorators, but in addition, as the sun set, the Elea staff also scattered lanterns and lights around the area. The standard of service was second to none with the staff going out of their way to ensure we had a good night both of eating and drinking and of dancing. We've always had a good time at the Elea, but this event was exceptional. Thank you to all involved - here are a few pictures to remind people of what a good time we had.
For those who wish to know, the dances we did were - Beyond the Black Stump; The Gay Gordon's; Butterscotch & Honey; The Grassmarket Reel; The Borrowdale Exchange (twice); The Eva Three Step; The Dashing White Sergeant; The Ring of Brodgar; The Galloping Carousel; The Pride of Erin Waltz and Deil Amang the Tailors.
Thanks to Irene for more pictures of a great night
The first June Jamboree is over. After many weeks of hard work. Thank you to everyone who contributed to a great evening, not least all the guests - members and non-members - who got up to dance and literally, dancied the night through.
Our Dance program for the night was:
The Waltz Country Dance; The Dhoon; The Ring of Brodgar (class dance); The Gay Gordons; The Haymakers; The Britannia Two Step; Festival Interceltique; Butterscotch & Honey (class dance) The Dashing White Sergeant; St Bernard's Waltz.
If anybody who took photographs or videos of the night are willing to share them on this site please contact me, I would love to have them. The pictures that I took are all available here - I'm afraid I didn't take that many but I was otherwise engaged most of the time!
What it's about
The June Jamboree 2014 was our first attempt at a Summer End of Season Ball and our first Summer event at the Elea Golf Club. It was, without doubt, a great success. Since then we have continued holding an event at the Elea although with slightly varying formats. We always have an excellent night.
