Thank you Ran! I'm glad you liked the new First Look ribbons! Yours were well deserved. I think nobody "got" the ribbon concept, though; the ribbon colors for all of the Best of Class corresponded to the class colors.

Ran forgot to mention the fabulous plants of his that he brought, both for vending, and the competition. I was lucky enough to pick up 'Breakers' and 'Lake Huron', myself.

The event was even more fabulous than last year's, and that's saying a lot!

I've got over 200 photos to wade through, but will hopefully get to sharing them, soon.

Just back from another great "First Look"  If you didn't attend, you
some fantastic new hostas that have not been seen in public before. We had
great food and the hotel was memorable. An almost unbelievable array of
plants were for sale in the vending area. many things that are not "on
market" were for sale . Each attendee got a free new hosta . These were
provided from Mark Zilis. The plant is 'Sugar Daddy' a white edged sport
'Big Daddy'  I can't wait to see this one when it is older!  There was
raffle, ( lots of really great stuff in there) and some programs. The
event allows everyone ( almost) plenty of time to talk. There were four
"big" prizes again this year. I will let someone else tell about those.
Carol & Bill were again responsible for the event and the wonderfull & fun
results. In addtion many other folks were there, adding neat and very
helpfull touches. One of those was Altera. All the grand prize ribbons
one of her little paintings in the center . What a great treat for those
us that were lucky enough to get one. I am already looking forward to
this again.  My personal thanks to everyone who worked so hard to make
a first class event.  and my sympathy to all those who missed out.
