Alfesta History


The history of Alfesta

 

Ernie and Joan Stock, Joan Lewis and Anne Beck compiled a history of Alfesta in the mid 1990′s which was given out as a booklet at Alfesta in 1996. The booklet advises that the gatherings from 1975 onwards are officially recognised Alfestas, but the 1971 to 1974 events were attended mainly by Victorian Division members with a few enthusiasts from the other States and were not considered National events.
