We are getting ready for another exciting year. Our first ACA meeting for Victoria on Saturday February 18th will be a little different, as we are meeting on a Saturday afternoon from 12 midday until around 5pm at the Wantirna Club (350 Stud Road, Wantirna South).
The reason that we are meeting around this time is that we are celebrating the four Victorian winners of Awards at the 2016 Sydney Stanley Awards held in Sydney.
In attendance will be Geoff Hook who has been invited into the ACA Hall of Fame, Gerald Carr who received the Jim Russell Award for his Contribution to Cartooning, Leigh Hobbs who received the Stanley for Children’s Book Illustrator and Matt Golding, who received the 2016 Stanley for Single Gag.
Some of these members couldn’t be at the Sydney Stanleys, so it will be a chance for them to actually receive their award. For others it will be a chance to share the glory once again. Please lock the date into your diary and email Ian McCall with a number of people that you will be bringing along.
The Wantirna Club is just near the corner of Burwood Highway and Stud Road, where we will have a large room upstairs.
