Six elected members of CMM and nine honorary men were among the largest gathering of CMM members ever at that event on Saturday, 12th November:
Elected and Honorary Cambridge Morris Men at the event: Graham Cox, John Weaver, Matt Simons, Ollie Simons, Randolf Scott, Mike Garland, Adam Garland, Peter Halfpenney (not dancing but stood to sing a song), Jon Melville, Charlie Corcoran, Joe Oldaker, Roger Comley, Mike Wilkinson and Ian Phillips. And elected CMM musician: Liz Bassett.
It was a great evening. At one stage the younger members of CMM, Anker MM, Jockey MM and ESMM (no doubt with others) performed a nine-man version of the Quaker, Bampton. Much later Matt and Ollie were two of the three who performed correct Bucknell double capers in Saturday Night.
Helen Strudwick of Devil’s Dyke MM and The Fitzwilliam Museum arranged for a combined show of DDMM and CMM in front of an early 17th century painting showing a Morris side dancing beside the Thames opposite Richmond Castle. The painting had been in Lord Fitzwilliam’s collection, donated to Cambridge University 200 years ago as the foundation of the museum.
