Graeme Whiteley’s Golden Microphone Award

November 1, 2009


In May 2009, Jeff Seidel had the privilege to present Graeme Whiteley with his well deserved golden microphone award (a golden badge and a framed certificate) from the Australian Callers Federation (ACF) in recognition of his 50 years of contribution to Australian square dancing.

Graeme & Jeff were founding members of the ACF established in 1979, and are both well known in square dancing circles.  Graeme holds the record for the longest time anyone in Australia has called for the same club in the same hall, he opened his club the Tassie Twirlers at Kindred, Tasmania in 1967 and has been there ever since.

Fifty years of calling is a great milestone, well done Graeme
