The first National Convention I attended was in Adelaide in 1974.  I was first given the opportunity to call at the 1975 National Convention in Melbourne.

 

Since then I have attended twenty National Conventions and called at 19 of these.  I was the Publicity Officer for the 1991 Melbourne (Broadmeadows) convention. We also had demonstrations at two Nationals, a quadrille in 1983 (Melbourne Showgrounds), and a children’s set at the 1991 (Broadmeadows) National Convention.

Now retired, and not subject to work constraints, Christine and I are looking forward to being able to attend more National Conventions in the future.
