The 11th Annual Tucson Orchid Dinner


#1

Please join us for a friendly and relaxed evening of networking and
Orchid interactions. Join us today for the 11th Annual Tucson Orchid
Dinner:

Several major trade events in the US provide occasions when Orchid
members meet outside the virtual world. Members of the Orchid Forum
gather together for dinner, allowing an opportunity to put together
names and faces.

An Orchid Event helps all of us in dispersing about
Ganoksin and its vast resources. Additionally, the group mind of
Orchid comes together to strengthen our community and share in
common experiences.

Attending an Orchid Dinner is your time to interact with other
Orchidians, relax after a long day and an opportunity to meet people
from trade publications and suppliers. Every year the Orchid Dinner
grows in popularity and is fast becoming the “must attend event” for
gem show enthusiasts!

The Savoy Opera House, Located in Tucson’s historic "Trail Dust"
section, is a complete recreation of authentic, turn-of-the-century
charm based on the famous Savoy Hotel in London. Enter the Savoy
Opera House through the intricate wood and beveled-glass, French
doors imported from the original hotel and bask in the light of
elegant Victorian chandeliers, traditional opera boxes, antique
back-bars and pressed tin ceilings.

Please find couple of hours during the show rush, to attend the
dinner, to have a relaxed evening and to make new friends.

Returning this year is “Orchid Shares”, a special table set aside for
postcards, brochures and catalogs. If you have to share,
please bring it with you to the Dinner.

I am looking forward to see you at the dinner!

Orchid Silent Auction

Each year a silent auction is held at the Tucson Orchid Dinner to
raise funds to help maintain the high costs of Ganoksin’s servers
Titania and Soi11. These servers house thousands of technical
protocols, video, Bench Tips, Galleries and the Orchid Archives.

Members of the Orchid community make great donations to this very
worthwhile annual event. The silent auction creates a lively
interaction between orchid members with furious bidding among
participants as well as raises money. Donations come from “newbies to
giants” in the jewelry profession, as well as companies of all sizes.
Both new and used items are acceptable. Here’s a great opportunity to
clear out your studio of those odd-and-ends, and help support Orchid
at the same time.

Hi All:

There are only 11 days left for the Annual Tucson Orchid Dinner held
on Friday, February 2nd! It is an exciting event for me which every
year I look forward to.

For those of you who are new to the Annual Tucson Orchid Event, it
began as a small gathering of friends, organized by Dave Ahrens. He
suggested that it would be great to share a meal with Orchid Tucson
Trekkers. Started 11 years ago, with 8 people around a table, this
event has grown to include a large gathering of friendly folks who
all get to meet in the real world.

Here is a nostalgic look back at the Dave’s original idea. Thank you
Dave. It was a good idea.

https://orchid.ganoksin.com/t/retucson-trekkers

From less than 20 people who attended the first Orchid dinner in
1997, the event grew to accommodate over 300 Orchidians last year.

This is our opportunity to meet each other and make friends; this is
our opportunity to put an Orchid on our bench, to connect and to
share.

I will be there and I hope you will be there too. Please find couple
of hours during the show rush, to attend the dinner, to have a
relaxed evening and to make new friends.

You can imagine how much work is involved in putting such a dinner
together. In order to make the jobs of our organizers easier, we
need to have registrations for the dinner no later than January 25!

If you have been thinking about registering for the dinner, Don’t be
left out! It will cost you more at the door, so help us help the
organizers make an amazing evening for all of us.

Please do it today at:

http://www.ganoksin.com/events/

At the dinner, the last year’s Raffle winner selects the 6 winners
for this year. It’s one of those “hold your breath” moments.

http://www.ganoksin.com/events/raffle-07.htm

It is important that all of us at Orchid, to purchase our supplies
from those vendors who also believe in the power of Ganoksin and
Orchid.

We have a silent auction for those last minute impulse items.

Don’t forget the Orchid Shares table set aside for your postcards,
brochures, or anything you wish to leave for others.

See you in Tucson in 11 days!
