The decision regarding the IAS Show and Sale has been taken out of our hands.
Fairchild Tropical Garden is *closed* from this afternoon -- Wednesday --
to Sunday afternoon. Thus, no Show and Sale....
We WERE waiting to see what track Georges would take before making a
decision. Fairchild made it for us.
I regret that those of you who have made Reservations on Airlines will
probably have to take a penalty. I suggest that you contact your Airline,
Tell them that Miami is under a Hurricane watch and that the event that you
planned to attend is cancelled. Some of the Airlines will probably make an
exception to the penalty.
It looks like, at this hour on Wednesday morning, the track of Georges will
skirt the north coast of Cuba and Miami will miss the worst part, however,
we plan of getting lots of rain, up to 10 or more inches.
The Show and Sale has been tentatively rescheduled for the weekend of
October 31 and November 1. The Heliconia Society has a Show scheduled for
that weekend but since most are members of both, there will be a spirit of
cooperation... We will keep you posted.
If there is anything that I can do to help you in any situation you may
find yourself..., please contact me (954) 434-2591, FAX (954) 680-0305 or
