[Tucson 2003] The 7th Orchid Dinner


#1

Dear all of Orchid, I have a special announcement this year for the
February Tucson Gem Show Orchid dinner. Hanuman will be attending
this dinner. We have asked that he speak to the gathering. The dinner
will be held the night of the 7th of February, 2003 and I will post
the costs of the dinner and times in the next week. I will save and
repeat this posting weekly. The 2002 dinner was such a wonderful
success in terms of attendance, meeting all of you who I read every
day and money to keep Orchid up and running. We had a wonderful
silent auction and donations from companies and individuals. I must
think this coming year will be even better with the attendance of
Hanuman. We will put a maximum on the number of dinners available.
We will post an attendance sheet on line soon for this dinner and
prices and times. If you need accommodations please check with Tucson
Chamber of Commerce and get them soon, they fill quickly. Two areas
you might try for accommodations if Tucson is already full are the
town of Benson , 30 miles east of Tucson on I10 and the Tubac/Green
Valley area 30 miles south of Tucson on I19. These towns are both
much more pretty than Phoenix and closer. Hope to see you there, Sam

Dear Ahmed, We are going to try and keep the dinner at 200 but think
it will go as high as 250. I’m so glad you will be coming, I will
enjoy meeting you. Sam

Hi Ahmed,

    Please tell me the head count as I need to get the badges
ready. 

It’s great to hear from you! Glad you’re planning on attending!

I’ll keep you up to speed on the head count. Las tyear there were
about 125. But Thjis year with Hanuman coming we expect more.

Count me in.

I am looking forward to seeing many of you in Tucson, especially at
the 7th Orchid Dinner. It is always a high energy evening with too
little time to meet and chat with the real bodies behind all those
virtual screen names. And, it will be great to have Hanuman with us
this year.

During the Tucson show week, I will be teaching a 3-Day Introduction
to Stone Setting Class at Rio’s Catalog in Motion. Enrollment is
limited, so check with Rio for details.

In addition, I will be giving a slide talk at Rio twice. The title
is, “The Art of Jewelry,” with lots of beautiful images of
contemporary jewelry across media, themes, styles and materials. The
talk is open to all and you can get the details at Rio’s website
http://www.cataloginmotion.com/education.htm.

See you then.

I plan on attending the orchid dinner in Tucson. It will be great
to meet many of our Orchid friends.

I will also be set up at the Tucson Gem and Mineral show which
unfortunately is scheduled for the last week of many of the shows.
Most out of town guests have headed home by then. If you happen to
be in town during the gem show stop by and see me. I will be
demonstrating wax turning and carving and will have a paper on my
fire scale, that $&%#&*(^$$#^ coating, free vacuum casting process
to hand out to any one interested. Hope to see you there

To All Orchidians- We have an opportunity to expand our reservations
for the Orchid Dinner at El Parador beyond 200 people but we must
know as soon as possible. Please, please get your reservations in so
we can make arrangements if necessary. Judging from the immediate
response many of you are looking forward to this dinner and, in
particular, to meeting the wonderful Hanuman. It’s terrific hearing
from old friends for reservations and we look forward
to meeting new friends in person. Pat Kulla @ Patania’s
