We have had a very busy time for the last 3 months with preparation of many things for the 39th South Australian State Convention. I had offered to modify some very large Cards – Jack, Queen and King of the four suits. Previously used for a heart fundraiser, they all had hearts on them. I set about changing them to all suits.
But Jacqueline had much more to do – Hospitality included a lot of cooking for the Saturday Night Supper. Jacqueline also made most of the prizes for the Convention Raffle and Jacqueline and I travelled to most Clubs around Adelaide and even to Naracoorte to sell the tickets.
But if that was not enough, Jacqueline was also talked into making the Dressed Set outfits for Sunset Twirlers. By the start of the Convention on the 29th August we were both burned out. By the end of the weekend we were a mess.
There were 6 prizes in the raffle – Yes 5 listed on the ticket books and an extra Prize Donated on the Friday Night of the Convention. The only two to go to non-squaredancers were delivered last week by Jacqueline to private addresses in Victor Harbor and Goolwa.
