The Medallion Tip is a special time for all Medallion recipients to come together to dance and celebrate their accomplishment of attending 10, 20, 25, or 30 IAGSDC conventions.
Recipients include dancers, non-dancers, callers, and vendors. They are awarded the medallion in recognition of their support and commitment to GLBT* square dancing.
Records are kept from year to year to track attendance. Rick Hawes became Stepmother of the Medallion Project (1988-2018) when he took it over from Freeman, and today, Stepdaddy Keith Gehrig is at the helm.
