11th ANNUAL GEEK DINNER
Have you heard the rumors? The Geek Dinner is the place to be at the
AIS National Convention! Don’t know where to eat? Eat with the geeks
and non-geeks that have learned what a fun time everyone has.
You don't have to be a computer Geek to attend. Join a bunch of great
people for dinner. Not only will there be dinner and good
conversation among iris friends but door prizes and an auction will
be part of the entertainment.
After having spent your day getting off the tour bus and rushing
around the garden trying not to miss anything...then back on the bus
to the next garden to repeat the same thing again...what better way
to end your day than a relaxed evening with friends at the Geek
Dinner reviewing all those iris that are now on your "wish list."
First there is meeting with all your friends and then making new
ones. If you happen to be a subscriber to one of the iris lists or
electronic robins, you can meet other members and put faces to all
those funny email names.
Then there is a great meal. This year it will be Spinach salad, rolls
and butter, Chicken Marsala, and Bread Pudding dessert.
Then of course the real fun for the night… The Geek Dinner Auction
where you get to bid on new iris introductions, gift certificates
from commercial iris growers, iris themed items and the “piece de
resistance” a petit-point creation in an iris motif donated by Jill
Bonino. The proceeds from the auction go 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.
Oh and of course some great doorprizes.
Now is the time to make plans for the, 11th annual Geek Dinner being
held right in the convention hotel of the 2009 AIS National
Convention. Meet new friends and catch up with old ones.
