Review: Reeling Ball

We’re still reelin’ from the fun.

With kilts, ball gowns and vigorous ‘setting’ galore Reeling Ball was back and bigger than ever.  On Saturday night, an elegantly attired collection of nationalities all congregated in Kinkell for an evening of merriment, dancing, breakfast and bagpipes. The committee had decided on the elegant decorating of Kinkell in streams of fairy lights which were the perfect backdrop to the array of ball gowns, family tartans, and impressive sporrans.

A champagne reception, and impressively smooth-running coat check ensured every guest entered the dance floor in a buoyant mood, clutching their dance cards with much anticipation. Socialising with fellow reelers allowed the revellers to momentarily relax before the purpose of the evening kicked off. Once the dancing started, everyone was in their element, from the novice to the professional everyone was enjoying throwing their partners across the dance floor, with only the occasional casualty.  As the wine flowed and the dancing got quicker, the floor narrowed down to only the seasoned-reelers, who’s impressive renditions of Mari’s Wedding were a joy to watch.  The traditional reels were punctuated with rock and roll music from the more than capable band, their ability to speed up at will and continually play for over five hours deserves as much praise as their music.  Full marks for them!

Everyone was afforded a rest with the arrival of a traditional English Breakfast – each plate was filled to the brim with bacon, mushrooms and sausages re-energising tired feet and weak knees.  For the final haul before after-parties and bedtime beckoned, the last reel had every single dancer heading to the dance floor with a glint in their eye, and a desire to go faster that the band could keep up with. Managing to avoid breaking any bones or sliding half way across the room, the assembled crowd collected themselves into a rousing rendition of the National Anthem and a jolly good cheer for the band.  A perfect end to a perfect night.

As the only white tie event in St Andrews, Reeling ball brought something new to the social scene, an ability not only to dust off your finest gear but also to have fun without getting totally blotto.  Every single person had a wonderful night, whether they were old hats or the new kids on the block, Reeling has most certainly set the precedent for Balls this year, and it will take quite something to top it.

  11. Completing the CAPTCHA proves you are a human and gives you temporary access to the web property. For those much-needed Zoom Happy Hours, Drunken Pirate is the best, free online drinking game for Zoom ever. The game is easy as hell, simply type in all of the player’s names, and begin “flipping” the online cards. The flipper’s name will be highlighted in blue on the left side and will give them a prompt to either do or read aloud. Some cards will make you play minigames, force rules upon players or single-handedly call players out. Just screen share the whole time and get playing. All in all, there really is no winning, the point is to get drunk. http://leader-maritsa.eu/community/profile/yaniraroan27031/ I hope you find lots of inspiration from this list of Christmas activities for teenagers.

  13. In many cases, the quickest loans you can get are online personal loans. With online lenders, you can submit your application and potentially get a decision right away, depending on the lender. Most personal loans from banks in the Philippines offer attractive interest rates for their personal loans. While standard monthly interest rates are around 1.5% to 2%, you can get lower deals for more specific types of personal loans like OFW loans or personal loan for business expansion. Depending on the specifications of your needs, you avail the lowest rates on personal loans from these banks. https://sylvest-serrano8.blogbright.net/instant-payday-loans-for-unemployed How often you use these types of cash loans will also affect your credit rating, in the short term at the very least. If a lender can see that you have been taking multiple payday loans, for example, from several different lenders, then it indicates that you’re unable to manage your outgoings. We would, therefore, advise that you only take out cash loans now if it’s a necessity, and you only use one lender. Applying for multiple lenders or multiple loan products in a short space of time will harm your credit rating, causing you to have more difficulty obtaining credit in the future.
