I'm not disputing you, Linda, aside from anything else the Southern Blight 
will sap one's joy pretty smartly, or at least it does mine, and I think they 
get nematodes and such as well,  but it did occur to me that there are AIS 
members down thataway, not all of whom are growing nothing but LAs, and I wondered 
about AIS conventions, as in how far South have they been held. I see here in 
a copy of the 75th anniversary Bulletin--p.26--that in 1979 the AIS convention 
was held in Huntsville Alabama, and in 1992 it was in Atlanta. 

Is there anyone on this list who went to either or both of those meetings and 
can you remember anything useful about how the gardens looked and what was 
doing well?
