The Meeting: Our meeting activities will be based at Brent and Becky’s Bulbs nursery. We will have dinner Friday night at Brent and Becky’s house, just a few minutes away from their nursery, where we can enjoy Brent’s garden. Friday, during set up of the auction plants and then again on Saturday night, we will enjoy Becky’s garden, which is adjacent to the nursery. Between the two gardens, the Heaths have just over 200 conifers mixed in with other shrubs, perennials, and bulbs.
The Hampton Inn has only one room remaining at $132 + tax. Quality Inn has rooms at a comparable rate as listed in the event info. Jim Schlitt
8/1/2019. I had no problem getting a room at the Hampton Inn, Gloucester at the ACS rate. To do this, however, I had to call the hotel directly at 804-693-9393. The room that I wanted with two queen beds did not appear on the Hilton Honors website. It only indicated that rooms with one King bed were available at the Internet rack rate.
I also had no problem booking a room at the conference rate of $109+tax. As it says above, you must call the hotel and mention the American Conifer Society to get the rate. I was given a double queen room, so apparently they have several configurations available.
As announced in the ACS SE newsletter, we are hosting a pre and post open garden for this meeting on October 17 and October 20. We are minutes off I95 just south of Fredericskburg (VA) in Spotsylvania. For address information please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
