A friendly reminder that if you would like to join us all for the traditional Banquet at the IAS Show and Sale in Miami this year ( Saturday, September 18th ), we need your reservations in as soon as possible, and certainly before September 11th.
Besides the traditional and delicious Cuban food, don't forget that Dr. Scott Mori will be giving a talk and the always popular auction of rare plants will be back as usual. For those who are not in the know - this auction is often a place to get some excellent deals on some very rare or one-of-a-kind specimens ... and your friend and mine, Dr. Tom Croat, has expressed his surprise and delight that we were able to snag someone of Dr. Mori's caliber as speaker this year. Banquet reservation instructions are at http://www.aroid.org/show/banquet_info_2010.php
Even if you want to wait until the show to pay, we do need to get your name on this list ... so at the very least, e-mail me privately
) and make sure you are not left out.
I know that in the past, a lot of people have waited until the last minute for this, or registered at the show itself, but this year we need your help to get an accurate count.
All the best, and hope to see you in Miami,
Vice President, IAS
