John forwards and replys at the same time:

As a general rule you can find the name of introducers and registrants
in the back of each annual R&I and decade Checklist.

I don't see the Cadds in any of the recent R&Is but I happen to have met
them, David and Anna (I think), at the Region 13. Their address:

David Cadd
329 North St
Healdsburg, CA 95448

>From the '97 R&I (lists HOME BEFORE DARK):
Gerald Moorhead
16824 Rayen St.
North Hills AR 71913

In the '95 R&I there is a :
John P. Knudtson
14533 Westchester Dr. 
Colorado Springs, CO 80921

(hybridizer of Orchid Splendor and Smooth Operator - neither introduced
as of the '97 R&I - but maybe in '98)
