Dear Fellow Hosta Gardener:  

Tomorrow is May 1, and that leaves just 15 more days to register for the 2003 
convention without paying the $100 late fee.  Registrations postmarked after 
May 15, 2003 will be subject to the $100 late fee.  (Note: the deadline for 
hotel registrations, as noted below, is May 18; so don't confuse these two 

You may have received a letter from our convention registrar, Sandie 
Markland, which I have liberally excerpted here:

The Potomac Hosta Club has the honor and privilege of hosting the 2003 AHS 
Convention in Falls Church, Virginia, this June.  Although you may have 
recently received your copy of The Hosta Journal and the invitation it 
contains, We want to extend to you a this personal invitation to be a part of 
"A Monumental Moment: The 2003 American Hosta Society National Convention."

A variety of exciting activities have been planned for your enjoyment 
including plant sales, a Hosta Show with leaf and plant entries from around 
the country, plant auctions, raffles and a book signing by respected author 
W. George Schmid who will speak on his newly published work, An Encyclopedia 
of Shade Perennials.  Of course, no AHS Convention would be complete without 
breathtaking garden tours, a mouth watering array of luncheon and banquet 
meals and, on Friday evening, an after dinner discourse by the always 
entertaining and informative Bob Solberg of Greenhill Farm.

Don't miss this opportunity to rub elbows with fellow hosta enthusiasts from 
around the world!  Now is the time to make plans to join us for "A Monumental 
Moment" in the beautiful outskirts of our Nation's Capital and reserve your 
very own gift plant --- H. 'Fallen Angel', a magnificent sport of H. 
'Guardian Angel' which will sweep you off your feet!  If you've never 
attended an AHS National Convention, this is an excellent place to start -- 
and don't miss the newcomers' meeting hosted by Sandie Markland on Thursday, 
June 19th.  Hosta people are wonderful and I am certain you will have a great 
time and make many new friends!

A registration form can be found on page 10 of Volume 33, Number 3 of The 
Hosta Journal, or at the official AHS site, <A HREF="www.hosta.org">www.hosta.org</A>. If you have
