Our annual convention is a huge party, normally held over the July 4th (USA Independence) weekend. But for new-comers, the event can be confusing and even overwhelming. That's why Allan Hurst (a square dancer and caller) put together his Guide To IAGSDC Conventions. The guide was first published in 2006, and is updated each year with feedback from dancers who attend the event, keeping the information fresh and relevant.
If you want to know more about what to expect, including opening and closing ceremonies, memorial, specialty and WFH/TNP tips, the Honky Tonk Queen competition and other regular highlights, you can read all about it here
