Thanks for the Orchid dinner report from Tucson, Teresa! I’m feeling
a bit “left out” again, and find myself repeating the annual lament,
"… maybe next year…"
In an effort to compensate for my feelings of inadequacy (tongue
planted firmly in cheek), let me add on a brighter note, that I will
for the first time be attending the annual SNAG conference this year.
Heck, it’s close enough I could almost walk there… if I started now.
Although I haven’t heard much talk about it here, I know others
will be attending as well. Probably many of those same people who are
in Tucson now and won’t read this message until they get back.
How about we have an Orchid dinner there??? Any takers? According to
the conference schedule, Friday is a free evening, and would probably
be an ideal opportunity. If there is interest, please reply directly
to me, and I’ll coordinate. I have contacts in Richmond who can
probably recommend a good place to have it. I am also open to
suggestions from “the floor.”
For anyone who is wondering, SNAG is the Society of North American
Goldsmiths, and the annual conference is in Richmond, VA this year,
February 28-March 3.
Hope to meet a bunch of y’all there!
