  Upcoming IAS Show & Sale
From: Dan Levin levin at pixar.com> on 2006.09.10 at 22:25:11(14585)

Please note that our 29th Annual Show will take place NEXT weekend
Sept. 16th & 17th at Fairchild Tropical Garden (just south of Miami,
If there's any way you can book a flight, boat or car- I highly
you to pop in for the weekend and immerse yourself in the incredibly
diverse world of aroids & aroiders.... There will be much to see, to
and to acquire! Full details can be found at http://www.aroid.org/

In summary:

: There will be a banquet Saturday night (Cuban cuisine). Our featured
guest speaker will be none other then Dr. Eduardo Gon?alves, flying up
from Brasil to present a talk touching upon his many years of experience
collecting, cultivating and classifying rare South American aroids.
Not to
be missed-!! Immediately after Eduardo's talk, the inimitable Julius
and Dr. Tom Croat will reprise their role of past years and jointly
[enter trumpet fanfare] the Live IAS Auction! (more on that in
another mail)
Trust me folks, the Captain & Tennille have NOTHING on Julius and Tom.

:: Throughout the entire weekend, incredible aroids of all
persuasion will be
available for viewing and purchase thanks to our many fantastic
vendors and
members alike- who are invited to bring along and sell their own
plants at the
IAS Member's Tables (please contact tricia_frank@hotmail.com for

::: Dr. Croat has also intimated he may present a secondary lecture
at some
point during the day. Unlike the main banquet which requires an advance
reservation and modest cover charge, all show visitors would be warmly
invited to attend Dr. Croat's daytime presentation.

:::: If all that isn't enough, you'll not-so-coincidentally find
yourself in the midst
of Fairchild Tropical Garden- one of the foremost tropical botanic
gardens in
the world.


If you're coming be sure to travel in with a few large, empty
suitcases. Trust me.
I look forward to seeing you there!

Dear President,

I am very frustrated to live so far from Miami . You are convincing! I
imagine that it is very interesting to follow the conferences of Dr. Tom
Croat, Dr. Julius Boos and Dr; Eduardo Goncalves.
Yes, I will like to be among you all Saturday to discover new plants and
to make new acquisitions. As it is not possible to come from France, I
ask you to do many photographs and to communicate them.
I would be with you all, in thought this weekend.
Best regards ,

Genevieve Ferry
