Wild Frontier’s Secretary Report

Hi everyone.  Well to quote an old Johnny Ray song (that is giving my age away) “It was a night, oh what a night it was” when over 100 Belles and Beaus came along to celebrate Jeff’s 50 years of Calling.  Jeff had thought not many people would turn up as no one would be interested, how wrong he was. I think we had dancers from every club, and also many former dancers. Margaret and Bob Lockett made the trip from Renmark. So good to see Jan Woodget with her daughter and  Joan Wratts again.

Our thanks to all the people who helped to make the night such a success.  Thanks to Scotty, Jenny and Gerry, Lois, April and Mal for the loan of old photos for me to copy for the Memory Book and Jenny for the photo Boards. Thanks to everyone who took the time to sign the book, I am sure it will give Jeff pleasure to look back at it in years to come. Thanks also to Heather Coutts for the beautifully decorated cake, Anne Tuckfield for her home made sausage rolls, a delicious addition to the platters at supper time, and Anne Anastasiou for the flower decorations.  Also thanks to all those who helped in any way to decorate the hall.

Thanks also to the guest callers, Peter Scott, Les Tulloch, Ian Rutter, John Casey and Janet Cook,  she hadn’t told Jeff she was coming, wanted it to be a surprise and a very nice one it was. Les Tulloch congratulated Jeff on behalf of the Callers Association. On behalf of Wild Frontier and Kannella Squares Jenny presented Jeff with a plaque (thanks Doug for organising it) to commemorate his 50 years of calling.  Jeff also received many cards and emails from people who had other commitments and could not attend, these came from all over Australia and overseas, it shows how well thought of he is.

Lastly our thanks to Jeff for his commitment and dedication to square dancing which has given so many people a great deal of pleasure over the past 50 years, and hopefully for many more years to come.

In spite of a late night several of us joined Scoot Back Squares on Sunday afternoon to celebrate their 5th Birthday, a good time was had by everyone.

In spite of the cold, wet weather we have been experiencing we managed 4 sets on our last Friday night dance before the National Convention. Like me I expect all those who couldn’t make the trip to Queensland are wishing they could have. It seems like this cold, wet weather has been going on far too long.

Jenny has given me a brief report on the Convention, she says they enjoyed the National Convention and thought it had a casual atmosphere.  There was lots of good dancing and great calling as usual.  She adds their feet are now enjoying being back in sneakers!  The ‘Hooroo Social’ gathering on the last night was something new and with a sausage sizzle and other food, entertainment and being able to mingle and chat it was an excellent finish to the Convention.  I hope all the dancers enjoyed themselves and had a safe trip.

Our next event is our Hot Soup Night on 22nd July when we will be joined by our friends from Scoot Back Squares and everyone is welcome to join us for our Fathers’Day dance on September 2nd, there will be a prize for the best bow tie.

Keep Warm and happy dancing everyone.
