Convention archive

Also a work in progress, this archive will eventually tell the story of our Annual General Meeting and the card fair and Convention that slowly grew to accompany it. Many thanks to everyone who has sorted through their magazines and memories to give us dates and venues. There was such a lot of information that it will take some time to load it in. 

Once that is done, we will again ask for your assistance, so please watch this space. And if you come across any souvenirs of these events, please contact us so we can add notes and pictures to our records...
