    Has your son had any kind of offer from Tring KK?

    RBS Junior Associates 2018

    To be fair M2BF, RBS get it wrong with the yes's too, it's not only the no's. At such a young age, it must be almost impossible for any school to get it right every time, for many reasons.

    News of non-dancing children.....

    You can tell her "well done" from me too, for all the hard yards.

    One thing for certain regarding RBS, it's absolutely not the be all and end all school. Like has been said on this forum many times before, there's more than one road leading to Rome

    Still not heard a cuckoo in these parts, very unusual.

    If you can find the strength (not easy by any means) to stand up to a bully, you will probably have at least one friend for life, as I found out in my younger days. He's turned out to be a decent bloke to be honest, and even now still apologises from time to time about his bullying all those years ago, and says I was right to let him have one. I wouldn't fancy it now mind, as he's a man mountain. I thought I'd mention this too, I played golf with a young lad, who handicap was 2 at the time, he's now a professional. His elder brother is the present Professional Commonwealth Lightweight boxing champion, and his younger brother is a Professional footballer who plays for Leeds United, not bad for one family.

    Departing Parent Envy

    Lets be real for a minute though, I think unless you have blinkers on, we all know the chances of gaining a contract with a company are slim for many. Unlike other activities such as football and rugby, you can drop down the leagues if you're not quite good enough, and still earn a decent living. We have had a super journey via the associate programme, yes it is expensive, but the tuition has been top notch all the way through, leading to some cracking offers for US. As a responsible person, my eyes will be well on the ball in the next chapter, due to this topic in particular.

    Departing Parent Envy

    I think some of the DC's parents, after reading a few of these posts, will be glad their children weren't successful in gaining a place at VS. It would be interesting to know, for those about to start US, just what the odds are it happening to them. If it's a very small minority, it's still too many.

    It might not be as one sided as you think alison, Thiem has already beaten Nadal on clay earlier this year, and he's a very powerful player. Mind you, I suppose he'll have to be if he wants the title.

    I popped to the kitchen to make myself a coffee, and missed it.
