Having a great time in Germany with Danny and Barbara.  We are staying with Michael and Erika Schmidt who also runs a country and western club here in Beiemheim. He has a website called Lucky-Country.de. Michael did a workshop for his new line dance and he did a video of Barbara and I doing the dance in his garden, which he has now put on his website.
The YouTube video of the workshop on the lawn can be found at http://youtu.be/6Z0uOR8cNwY

On the site www.Lucky-Country.de - you will find the Stepsheets and Videolinks.

The weather has been great.  Tonight (Sat 5th May) we are going to another country and western club, resting day tomorrow and back home on Monday.

There are false rumours circulating that artistes have been cancelled or changed at the Golden Eagle.

This could simply be that the club is being confused with one of the other 'Golden Eagles' that are around the country.

The planned programme is unchanged from that previously published. These can be found here on Kent Country or on the Golden Eagle web page at http://goldeneagle.kent-country.org

Rustlers CMCWe have recieved the following from Vince Keeler.

Hi Maggie & Mick,
Please could you put up on your website that it is with a very heavy heart that I have to announce that December 16th 2017 will be The Rustlers C.M.C. very last night.

After much deliberation we will be closing our club after some 30+ years we have had a great time running the club and will be sad to say goodbye to all our regular supporters but due to financial difficulties and health issues with my father and co founder of the club we feel we have no choice but to call time on the club.

We hope everyone will come and support us on our last night with Martin Jaye on December 16th and have a great farewell night for the club.

Many thanks Vince

Following the untimely death of Dean Barnes, we understand that Ray will be continuing as a solo.
The band steel player Dave, was planning to leave the band and re-join the Henry Smith Band, so  the Ray Peters Band is temporarily disbanded.

Ray tells us that the plan is to re-form the band with new players, and as and when these plans firm up, we hope to bring news.

We have today recieved a phone call from Frank Powers (organiser Golden Star CMC) asking us to remove all reference to the club from our site.

We had previously been asked to add the details by a representive of Chatham Suburban club, and accordingly, the information was published.

However, Frank tells us that he is now a member of the Chatham Suburban Club committee and they agree that they do not want to have their events published on this site.

Although we find it difficut to understand why anyone would not want free publicity for their events, we will respect their wishes.

Therefore, it is reluctance, we have removed all reference to The Golden Staer CMC from this site

Due to ill health, the Best of British will (for the time being) be run by the support team.

Details of the revised contact numbers can be found on the Best of British web site.
