I just spoke with a Grand Sheik from the USA who said that the presentation made by the Perfect Day Tent was by far the best and it is believed that they received approximately 80% of the vote.

Much of the convention was audiotaped and I hope to be able to have that available here in the near future.
Jean Darling provided an excellent interview and I'm told she even sings one song.

Payne Johnson, one of the Three Little Pigs from
March of the Wooden Soldiers , discusses how he got that role and mentions a couple of Our Gang comedies in which he can be seen.

There's interviews with several Sons including a couple who live near Manchester, England - they were engaged in Ulverston and just got married at the convention.

And I was told that there is enthusiastic support for the 2008 Amsterdam Convention with many Sons already making plans to attend.
