SoCal Orchid Dinner 2004?


#1

Hi Gang,

Last year around this time, Brad Smith and I were busily planning
the first SoCal Orchid Dinner for November in Santa Monica. This
year both of us are swamped with other commitments and will not be
able to organize the event.

Is there someone (or two) out there in Southern California who would
like to take this on? Brad and I have everything documented from
last year and will be happy to pass on all our files, answer any
questions that might come up, and generally “coach” where needed.

It was an extremely fun and rewarding enterprise and I’m sorry we
have to pass it on, but I’m sure there must be a couple other
Orchidians who would enjoy the experience as much as we did. If
that’s you, please drop me a line at <@Beth_Rosengard>.

Cheers, Beth

Hi All,

I posted the following message about a week ago and have had only
one response. Any other takers?

Beth, As an attendee last year, I know there is a good reason to have
this Orchid gathering in the Los Angeles area.

Oceanside is too far away for me to have a hands on role. I can
offer to do some of the grunt work involved.

Has anyone approached a jewelry related business in and around Los
Angeles to sponser one? How about Borguet (sp), Progressive Tools?.
Perhaps David Barzilay or Dan Ballard can come up with a suggestion.
GIA LA?

Hi Terrie,

  Has anyone approached a jewelry related business in and around
Los Angeles to sponser one? How about Borguet (sp), Progressive
Tools?. Perhaps David Barzilay or Dan Ballard can come up with a
suggestion. GIA LA? 

Finding a sponsor is not the immediate issue; finding an
Orchidian(s) to organize the event is the problem. (Actually, Dan
Ballard is cogitating on an interesting idea, but nothing is
definite. That’s why I reposted.) But thanks for the suggestion and
the offer of help.
