Event Publication:

The Inter-city Scot is published as a service to the Scottish Country Dancing community by volunteers. Listings are free. Events should be submitted via electronic form. Links to the forms are available at the top of each page on the web site. Event notices must contain: event day, time, location and contact person with e-mail address and/or phone number with area code. Musicians, teachers and other information may also be included.


In 1982 Ingrid Kendall (Chicago, IL) suggested to Doug Schneider the idea of a "newsletter so that we can all find out what is going on in the Midwest." Doug took on that idea and published the first bi-monthly edition of The Inter-city Scot in May 1982. It contained a list of events and people to contact. Rather than being a regional newsletter, The Inter-city Scot quickly became national and later, international, including Canada. By 1983 the number of contacts had become large enough that The Inter-city Scot started publishing an annual contact list. The bi-monthly issue was primarily events and updates to the annual contact list.

In May 1996, The Inter-city Scot first posted an electronic edition of the print edition on the Internet. In May 1998, the Internet edition became the main source of information with the print edition being derived bi-monthly from the Internet edition. And, finally, the last issue of the print edition of The Inter-city Scot was published in September 2010.
