Letters of Reference
The MossyBack Morris Men have danced to the delight of thousands of onlookers. Many of our performances were invitational or paying gigs. Some of the people were nice enough to thank us with a letter. Here is a sample of letters received.

Our piece de resistance- a letter from the then Mayor of Seattle, Charles Royer, thanking us for dancing for Queen Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh during their visit here. "The Queen was very impressed..."
We danced for British Airways at their "English Tea Party" at Sea-Tac Airport.
Mick McHugh has been a great supporter. We've danced at many of his restaurants. He used to give us free beer but then found it was cheaper just to pay us. We danced at the original Jake O'Shaughnessey's on Mercer St. when the first keg of Red Hook Ale was rolled out and tasted.
The MossyBacks were part of several Revels performances. Very professional seasonal celebrations led by John Langstaff.
Kent, WA (south of Seattle) does a Renaissance type fair called The Canterbury Faire.
Down Manor is a retirement home in Hood River, OR. We had a lovely tour there together with the Mayfield Morris and Sword team from CA.
We danced for many years on twelfth night for an Episcopal church in West Seattle. The Reverend and staff were quite entertaining themselves. Reverend Ralph says "Very High Marks."
A nice letter from Karen Haas of Fort Nisqually, an historic site at Point Defiance Park in Tacoma, WA. We danced for their Queen Victoria's Birthday Celebration.
Another good karma stand - Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.
