Article for Round Up December 2013

Yes, it’s nearly Christmas but rather than easing off, the committee for the 56th Australian National Square Dance Convention is ramping its activities up a notch to make sure the convention in 2015 will be an event to remember! Sewing machines are running hot and our dressed set outfits are rapidly taking shape.

If you’ve been to a National Convention you’ll know that there is a formal handover to the following year’s convention committee. We’ve planned a short snazzy presentation to showcase our 2015 convention to the dancers at next year’s event in Canberra. We just need some rehearsal time!

As part of our promotional activities we hope that we will be able to get representation from SA to attend as many State Functions and Conventions as possible in 2014 to persuade interstate dancers to attend our event in 2015. Word of mouth is a great way of disseminating information. So let your friends in other states and overseas know about our convention in April 2015 so that they can start planning their holiday now. So if you are travelling, please take some convention flyers with you. Easter weekend 2015 will be a busy time for hotels, motels and other accommodation venues - so they will need to be quick to get the best places.

We’ve started looking for sponsors from the hospitality industry. If you have any ideas about suitable sponsors, please let one of the committee know. You can contact the committee through the website, but in case you don’t use the Internet, here is a list of the committee members:

Graham & Dawn Elliott - Co-Convenors
Jenny Battersby - Secretary
Don Stephens - Treasurer
Jan Stephens - Registrations
Karen Dempsey - Hospitality
Murray Dempsey & Ivan Cooke - Venue
Janine Cooke - Accommodation
Heather Wheeler - Creche
Graham Elliott & Les Tulloch - Square Dance Programme
Karen McCarthy & Carl Mullan - Publicity

We wish you all a wonderful Christmas and New Year.
