Convention archive

We are working to create an archive detailing the story of our Annual General Meeting and the card fair that slowly grew to accompany it.

We freely admit these are currently but bare bones, and would really appreciate your help in sourcing material and memories. If you know of or can contribute any information that is not here, whether that is in vintage magazines, online, or anywhere else, please contact us so we can add them to our records - we'd love to hear from you!
