I’m so glad to see a mention of the Florida Orchid dinner! There has
been a lot of discussion of the New York dinner, naturally, but I’ve
been feeling a little like a step-child because there has been very
little mention of the Orchid dinner at SNAG in 10 days. It may be
smaller than New York or Tucson, but I, for one, am very excited
about my first SNAG conference and my first Orchid dinner. I hope a
slew of you guys are coming to St Pete and to dinner.

Does anyone know how many are expected? I just talked to two
Orchid-member friends who hadn’t gotten the word about the Orchid
dinner, and have made other plans for that night! So, spread the
work, people! I want to meet a bunch of you.

See you at SNAG-- I’ll be there, wearing an orchid in gold and


Noel, As of this morning we have 50 people who have said that they
are coming. I expect that we will have more than that by the 19th.

Hi Rick, Thanks so much for all your help and at the
SNAG Conference. Alos thanks for all the samples you gave us. It was
a great conference and I had a great time. Also thanks Joel for all
the great work on the Orchid dinner and everyone else who helped
with the Orchid dinner. Also thanks to all the people who put on
this wonderful conference. Thanks to the Florida group it was
wonderful. How did you all give us that great weather? Just kidding.
It was fantastic. I will have so many great memories. Thanks again
to all of SNAG and tthe wonderful speakers. Cheryl Orahood.
