From the Program Book of the 34th IAGSDC Convention, held in Palm Springs, CA in 2017:
Hunter has been around square dancing all his life, having been dragged from dance to dance by his parents and grand-parents. After the death of his grandfather in 2002, he decided that he wanted to do something th<jt would always remind him of his hero, and decided to start taking squ;:ire dance lessons. Six months later he picked up a microphone and began calling. He eventually became the caller for four clubs .. The Magic Diamonds, the 59ers, tha Hoedowners, and the Checkerboard Squares. He called his first fesii-.1al in July of 2007 in California and has also called in Japan, Germany, Australia, Canada, Belgium and Taiwan.
