Welcome to Northern NSW Square Dance Association

Proud Host of the 2017 NSW State Square Dance Convention - Lismore September 15-18

WOW! WHAT A WEEKEND! WHAT A CIRCUS SCENE! WHAT A GREAT CONVENTION! TWO YEARS OF ORGANISING, TWO DAYS OF TRANSFERRING THE GOONELLABAH SPORTS AND AQUATIC CENTRE INTO A CIRCUS TENT, COMPLETE WITH CLOWNS AND CIRCUS ANIMALS AND THEN HOW QUICKLY THREE NIGHTS AND THREE DAYS OF FUN, FRIENDSHIP, GREAT DANCING, CALLING AND CUEING JUST FLEW BY. STARTING ON THE FRIDAY NIGHT, ABOUT 150 DANCERS FROM NSW, QUEENSLAND AND VICTORIA CONVERGED ON GSAC READY TO PARTY AND HAVE A GOOD TIME, SETTING UP A GREAT ATMOSPHERE WHICH LASTED THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE WEEKEND.

THE DANCERS WERE GREATLY ASSISTED IN THIS BY THE WONDERFUL CIRCUS THEME THAT GREETED THEM AS THEY ENTERED THE VENUE. TWO BRIGHT HAPPY CLOWNS WERE THE FIRST THING VISITORS SAW, INVITING THEM TO ENTER INTO THE "BIG TOP". INSIDE WERE SOME WONDERFUL CIRCUS ANIMALS AND MORE COLOURFUL CIRCUS ITEMS. FRIDAY NIGHT WAS OUR OPENING NIGHT WHICH STARTED WITH A SPECTACULAR PARADE OF CLUB BANNERS. 37 CLUBS WERE REPRESENTED AND ALL THE BANNERS HAD A WONDERUL DISPLAY OF LANTERNS OF ALL SHAPES AND SIZES LEADING THEM INTO THE HALL AS WELL AS BEING BEING MIXED IN AMONGST THE BANNERS AS THEY PARADED AROUND. WITH THE LIGHTS TURNED WAY DOWN, IT REALLY WAS A GREAT SIGHT TO SEE. THE GROUP OF PEOPLE WHO MADE ALL THIS POSSIBLE FOR US WAS THE LOCAL LISMORE 'LIGHTNUP' GROUP LED BY JYLLIE JACKSON. WE CERTAINLY OWE THEM A GREAT DEAL OF THANKS  FOR ALL THE WORK THEY PUT INTO CREATING SUCH A GREAT ATMOSPHERE FOR US.

WITH SUCH A START THE WEEKEND JUST GOT BETTER AND BETTER AS IT WENT ALONG, FINISHING UP WITH OVER 100 DANCERS STAYING ON FOR THE LUNCHEON BBQ ON MONDAY BEFORE HEADING HOME. WE WOULD ALSO LIKE TO GIVE A VERY BIG 'THANK YOU' TO STEPHANIE FLORENTINE, ROBERTA AND THE ENTIRE STAFF OF GSAC FOR ALL THE HELP AND SUPPORT THEY GAVE US AND OUR EVENT. THEY CERTAINLY WENT ABOVE AND BEYOND THE NORMAL CALL OF DUTY TO MAKE EVERYONE FEEL VERY WELCOME, WHICH WAS CERTAINLY NOTICED AND APPRECIATED BY ALL THE VISITING DANCERS. MANY THANKS ALSO TO THE 12 CALLERS AND 4 CUERS WHO GAVE UP THEIR TIME ENTERTAINING THE DANCERS AND KEEPING THEM DANCING THROUGHOUT THE WEEKEND. 150 DANCERS WENT HOME TIRED, BUT VERY HAPPY WITH THE WEEKEND AND THE WAY THEY WERE MADE TO FEEL SO WELCOMED TO LISMORE.
