The Griffin (or Gryffon) was adopted by the hosting RAIA ACT Chapter of the Canberra Forum – respectful of Canberra’s founder
It was held at the Canberra Rex Hotel in Northbourne Ave. (now demolished)
The Griffin was a great success, but I hardly remember anything about the event. I remember designing a loose leaf notebook with all the events in it – to be useful after the event.
I still have it with lots of spare punched sheets which has served me well ever since. I have never been a great fan of these talkfests which sound grand but in retrospect hardly seem to make any impression of significance on the mind.
