                        Border Convention Website

The Border Convention website as it now is, in the next few days will disappear,

This move has been forced upon us by the discontinuation of Adobe flash player at the end of the year.

Unfortunately, when we migrate to the new format many of the features will not be compatible, these will include the photo galleries and the show results and links. Therefore, these initially will be missing but hopefully given time and patience these can be recreated.

We apologise in advance for any inconvenience but are informed by our website host this is the price of progress!!!!!
