Just some fun shots from our 41st State Convention. Dawn was asked to open the Convention because this was her 40th Convention. Also a shot here of Graham with the feature caller – Paul Long from WA. A little joke re the football game on at the same time – West Coast Eagles (WA) vs Crows (SA). Paul decked Graham out in the Eagles colours!

At the 2011 National in Darwin our club members combined with Wild Frontier and Kanella Squares to present one of the Dressed Sets representing South Australia. A sharp looking bunch I must say! (Thanks to Roger Marchant for the photo).

2010 June 12 – Graham receives Silver Microphone award


At the 51st National Convention, Graham’s 25 years of club calling was recognised by the Australian Callers Federation (ACF) in the form of a “Silver Microphone Award”. A certificate and lapel pin mark 25 years of service to the “trade” and this was presented on the Saturday night of the Convention by the ACF Chairman at the time – Jeff van Sambeek.

In this same year, Callerlab, the international association of square dance callers awarded Graham the “Quarter Century Club” award for those 25 years of service.

Makes one feel a little old don’t it?
