Northeast Region Meeting
Date: Friday, September 20, 9:00 AM - Sunday, September 22, 2019, 5:00 PM
Place: Atlas Buoy 0.00E 0.00N
The 2019 Northeast Region Meeting will be held this September in the Farmington River Valley of Connecticut.
The highlight of the meeting will be Saturday's tour, which will feature three outstanding conifer gardens. We have the Artist's Garden, the Conifer Society Tailgate Sale Garden and a garden featuring many conifers purchased from Dennis Dodge. There was an exceptional article that appeared in the Winter 2019 CQ, describing these gardens, which is attached here: Gardens of the Northeast
In addition, we are assembling a number of both private and public gardens and conifer nurseries for you to visit both on a pre- and post-tour.
Our keynote speaker on Friday night will be Adam Wheeler of Broken Arrow Nursery. He will be making a presentation entitled: "Oddball Plants for Oddball People!" I don't know about you, but many of us fit into that category!
The Northeast Region is known for its amazing collection of unusual plants for its silent and live auctions. Our plant acquisition team is busy assembling something that will appeal to everybody. We anticipate that we will have some of Sid Waxman's and Dennis Dodge's obsolete offerings!
Our base will be the Doubletree/Hilton Bradley Airport. Please ask to speak to the sales manager when you call in order to get the ACS rate of $129 plus tax, which is guaranteed until August 19 or until the block sells out. Their phone number is 860-627-5171.
We hope that you will take a break from your busy schedule to spend some time in North Central Connecticut for the Northeast Region Meeting, September 20-22, 2019. You will find a registration form in the Spring 2019 edition of the CQ.
