Summary of contents

Issue 72  is a bumper double spring/summer number; the Editor apologises for the very late arrival and thanks all contributors - and readers, of course - for their forbearance.

Within its pages you'll found articles on topics many and various, including Part 2 of Knotty's guide to archiving Morris materials, two new dances from the deep south (well, the Isle of Wight, anyway), pipe and tabor insights for all fipple-fans, memories of the late Roy Dommett, antipodean arrivals, porcine-precise east coast caperings, longs in Yorkshire, shorts in Scotland and a meeting in Liverpool beyond measure.

Contributions are invited for the next issue of the Morris Ring Circular, with this special plea: that the resolution of all photographs submitted be as high as possible to allow for successful reproduction in printed paper form - a process significantly compromised if the original picture has been inadequately captured. So please instruct your digital device to take uncompressed pictures set at the highest possible quality (size) and lay off the digital zoom. That way, if your apparatus boasts, say, at least a 7 megapixel lens, the resulting images should not suffer unduly if reproduced as the MRC front cover at around seven inches wide by eight inches high. Such fame! But please don't be deterred from submitting that stunning shot however it was achieved - valiant attempts (up to a point, Lord Copper) will be made to do it justice.

And please include this important information: the photographer's name, the identity of the featured persons (individuals/side), details of the location and the date on which the photo was taken (it's all essential for future researchers). Great photos do not necessarily need an accompanying article or report; as long as those crucial facts are to hand, such images are very welcome, so dig 'em out or snap anew.

Thank you - enjoy your reading. Anthony Foard (Ed.)
