After the extraordinary year we have all been through we are excited, along with our planning team, to be planning something positive for us all to look forward to.
We are equally excited to be planning this event with a team of family, and friends who we met square dancing many years ago. Apart from Georgia (who has technically been dancing ALL her life), the rest of us have danced for over 30 years each, and have attended most National Conventions during our dancing years. Our team members are based across 3 different states (Howard and Brenda from VIC, Donna and Noel from QLD, Jason, Leanne, Georgia and Lorraine from NSW) will work hard to put on a wonderful event to welcome you all back to the National Conventions we all love.
The dance venues at 'Goulburn Recreation Centre' are perfect for dancing with great floors and the main hall has good heating and cooling to meet the needs of Goulburn's climate. There is also a great cafe/restaurant on site that we plan on utilizing. All COVID-19 requirements will be followed by both the venue and the organising team to ensure that your health and safety is prioritized.
There is lots of accommodation in the area with various motels as well as cute B&Bs and private homes for rent. For those with caravans or motorhomes, there are powered and unpowered sites at the convention venue! You can literally sleep at the convention!!
Our theme, 'Day and night, let's make it bright' is all about being surrounded by beautiful, vibrant colours that create a positive and happy vibe for the whole weekend. We hope you join us by wearing your favourite colourful square dance attire throughout the convention.
All relevant information is available on this website, including registration links, and you can also join our Facebook group for immediate updates on information.
We sincerely hope you will be able to join us for this first convention back after COVID-19 interrupted our annual event.
