AIS: GEEK Dinner


(the following is on the AIS Website and soon - but not yet - on the 2005 Convention website)


Dont know where to eat at the AIS National Convention? Eat with us Geeks. Thats right, time is running out! NOW is the time to make plans for the 2005, 6th annual Geek Dinner being held in St. Louis, Missouri. You dont have to be a computer Geek to join a group of wonderful people, Geek and non-Geek alike, who come together for this event every year. Meet new friends and catch up with old ones for dinner and conversation including door prizes and an auction.

Some say the Geek dinner and auction is the highlight of the convention (aside from the gardens of course). Last year the auctioneer even had John and Joanne bidding against each other for a few moments (until they figured out his evil scheme).

Again this year we will have a petite point broach and earrings in an iris motief donated by Jill Bonino for the auction. In previous years this was the hit of the evening.

Last years door prizes and auction items included generous gift certificates from hybridizers and iris items from friends. The proceeds from the auction went 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. Last year in Fresno was our biggest turnout ever with 200 people and unfortunately we had to turn those away who did not pre-register. PLEASE RSVP to Joanne (see below) by Fri, May 6th.

COST: $29.00 (not included in convention registration)

DATE: Friday, May 13, 2005

TIME: 5  7 pm

LOCATION: Versailles Room, Sheraton Westport Hotel

MENU: Salad

Grilled Chicken pasta primavera

Also, if you have items to donate to the auction, please let John or Joanne know at you earliest convenience.
