Geek Dinner

13th ANNUAL GEEK DINNER  (please let your iris friends know too)
Have you heard the rumors? The Geek Dinner is the place to be! Don’t know 
where to eat?  Eat with the geeks and non-geeks that have learned what a fun 
time everyone has.
You don't have to be a computer Geek to attend. Join a bunch of great people 
for dinner. Not only will there be dinner and good conversation among iris 
friends but door prizes and an auction will be part of the entertainment.
After having spent your day getting off the tour bus and rushing around the 
garden trying not to miss anything...then back on the bus to the next garden 
to repeat the same thing again...what better way to end your day than a 
relaxed evening with friends at the Geek Dinner reviewing all those iris that 
are now on your "wish list."
First there is meeting with all your friends and then making new ones. If you 
happen to be a subscriber to one of the iris lists or electronic robins, you 
can meet other members and put faces to all those funny email names.
Then there is a great meal. (see below)
Then of course the real fun for the night… The Geek Dinner Auction where you 
get to bid on new iris introductions, gift certificates from commercial iris 
growers, and iris themed items. The proceeds from the auction go directly 
into the American Iris Society Electronics Services fund that sponsors such 
things as the digital projector for slide shows and the online iris databases.
Oh and of course some great doorprizes.
Now is the time to make plans for the, 13th annual Geek Dinner being held 
right in the convention hotel of the 2012 AIS National Convention. Meet new 
friends and catch up with old ones.
