Fourth Australian Science Fiction Convention
This convention had been assigned to the North Shore Futurian Society.
Issue 31 of Melbourne newszine Etherline reports the following committee members: W. Hubble (Organizer), A. Haddon (Secretary), P. Burke (Chairman), M. Bos (Local publicity), and D. Cohen (Treasurer). However, Arthur Haddon has been credited with doing much of the organising.
The official dates were March 18-19-20. However, the convention could alternatively be considered to have been run March 19-20 with a Fancy Dress Ball as a prelude on the 18th.
Attendees of the Ball included Bill Veney and partner as Salome and the Wandering Jew, Arthur Haddon as a Martian Grub, Norma Hemming as a Venusian Swamp Girl, Bill Hubble as a character from L. Sprague de Camp's "Stolen Doormouse", and Doug Nicholson as a ghoul.
A portion of the Business Meeting addressing a split in Sydney fandom was chaired by Ian Crozier of Melbourne.
