Welcome to Congress


Registration completed, bags collected and blogger beads have been donned.

The crowds gathered and the conversations began…in fact the bus to the Australian War Memorial for the welcome did sound like a flock of happy lorikeets settling into the gum tree for the evening <smile>.

The buzz didn’t cease as we entered the hall dominated by famous Lancaster G for George. Here’s just some of the happy delegates, meeting each other, renewing old friendships and making new ones.

Canberra turned on a magnificent clear day yesterday for its visitors …though that wind was a touch chilly for those from northern climes. This morning is another beautiful day with open skies and sunshine as we look forward to hearing some wonderful speakers.
