I have leaflet with words and music for “RNIB Anniversary Reel”. It was devised by Alan MacPherson, RSCDS Stirlingshire Branch, December 1992. Inscribed to the Royal National Institute for the Blind to celebrate their 125th Anniversary. Music written by Stanley Flett.

“RNIB Anniversary Reel” - a 32 bar reel for 3C in a 4C longwise set

Bars 1 - 8 1st couple lead down the middle and back. (2nd couple step up on bars 3 - 4)

Bars 9 - 12 1st couple cross and cast off to 2nd place on partner’s side. 2nd, 1st and 3rd couples set

Bars 13 - 16 2nd, 1st and 3rd couples dance back-to-back, but 1st couple remain facing each other in the centre.

Bars 17 - 20 1st couple dance down with 4 slipsteps and change places by turning with the right hand.

Bars 21 - 24 1st couple dance up with 4 slipsteps and turn with the right hand to face first corners.

Bars 25 - 32 1st couple set to corners and partner (hello and goodbye setting), turning to own sides on bars 31 - 32

Many thanks, Kate.

This dance was not yet on SCDDB, so I have added it (#18228). The “original description” supplied by Kate Bould (see above) has several anomalies. We need to tackle them. I have therefore added the full description with my comments as a “Contributed Crib”, so that anyone can see the anomalies and help us solve them.

The music also still needs to be added.

Has anyone else heard of this dance, and have instructions? Please help us.

Greetings. Eric
