Old Vermin Folklore: Morris recruitment (33) RE: Folklore: Morris recruitment 05 Oct 10


Quick guide to Morris organisations or at least my understanding of them. Please correct me if necessary :-

Morris Ring. Very traditional, men-only sides only. Gets regular news coverage about Morris being about to die out.
Morris Federation. Originally for women's Morris, but became more inclusive.
Open Morris- lovely name suggestive of the Morris Minor convertible.

Membership of Federation and Open sides seems to be thriving.

I haven't the strength to analyse by tendencies to type of dance or make-up of membership, but Border and Molly seem to be prominent in the newer sides.

Thank you for the good wishes, tatterfoal, and good luck in Grimsby. It would be impertinent of me to suggest transferring allegiance from the Ring and becoming a mixed side, so I'm not.

Federation newsletters and other information at Morris Federation

Morris Circle. Fictitious, see film Morris, a Life with Bells on. Well worth watching.
