WELCOME
 One of lifebs simple pleasures for bHostab gardeners is taking place at
a
bend in the Mississippi River called Dubuque.     We want to welcome everyone
to the Midwest Regional Hosta Convention. We hope you will enjoy what we
believe will be a great convention. Relax and enjoy not only the beautiful
gardens
and the friendship of fellow hostaholics, but take some time to soak up some
of
the local lore as well.
Dubuque is a historic and scenic river city. It is a city built among the
river bluffs. Some of you may remember being here 10 years ago for the 1994
Midwest convention. If you havenbt been back since, you will not recognize
the
recently revitalized downtown, or the riverfront which has just undergone a
major
renovation. Now the home of the new National Rivers Museum and Aquarium, (a
Smithsonian affiliate). A beautiful new River Walk, a new Convention Center,
and
the new Grand Harbor Hotel with an indoor water park.   For the gamblers
among you there is the Greyhound Park and Casino or The Diamond Joe Riverboat
Casino. Shoppers may enjoy the many boutiques that line the streets within
walking
distance of the Holiday Inn. Oh!  Then therebs the microbrewery only a block
away. For the nature lovers among you, go hiking or bicycling on Heritage
Trail or visit one of our many parks, especially Eagle Point Park that
overlooks
the river and the lock and dam. From there you can see into Wisconsin and
Illinois. If you brought your binoculars you can see the garden of David and
Barbara Leifker, which will be part of our tour.
 We are pleased that you could join us for this hosta happening. bGreat
River
Hostasb for a weekend of hosta excitement. Enjoy the garden tours, shopping
at the many vendors, bidding at the auctions, and a picnic and tour of the
Arboretum on Friday.  We are looking forward to seeing the many entries for
the
Hosta Show and our new feature:  bMidwest Sneak Preview.  Best of all, enjoy
the
company of your fellow hosta gardeners. Spend time in the hospitality suite
renewing old friendships and making new.
