Thu 9 Apr SPECIAL PRE-CONVENTION DANCE WITH RANDY DOUGHERTY (USA)
The Australian Callers Federation invites you to a special pre-Convention dance with RANDY DOUGHERTY (USA)
7.30 to 10.30 Mainstream & Plus
Blackheath Community Centre, Great Western Hwy, Blackheath (13 mins from Convention venue)
Tickets $15 pre-booked or $20 at the door
This dance is open to all on a first come, first served basis. Tickets are limited due to the size of the hall.
This dance will be held the evening prior to the start of the 2020 National Square Dance Convention at Wentworth Falls over Easter weekend.
Our special guest caller for this dance is RANDY DOUGHERTY, a great caller and entertainer from the USA. Randy has been to Australia once before for a weekend at Figtree about 25 years ago.
The area encompassing the Blue Mountains is truly beautiful. Make sure that you have plenty of time to see what nature has created, as well as attending the Convention...it really is worthwhile.
As the Convention is over the Easter weekend, accommodation, while plentiful in the area, is usually fully booked out well before the long weekend. It would be advisable to check it out now...there are lots of neat places to stay within a 10 minute drive of the Convention venue.
