As I think about what to write here, I think about those we have lost over the recent years. This convention honored the 
memory of both Dottie Sable and Rod Armstrong, both quiet but wonderful people and hold a place in myself that 
can't be replaced. they were strong members of their local society and great advocates for the ADS in general. 

This convention was such fun, and not quite what I was expecting. The Sunday afternoon lunch at Joe T. Garcias Mexican
Restaurant was one of the best times I can remember. 
The Margaritas flowed freely and the Mariachi Band was a wonderful experience! 

See photos below. I seemed to have missed the Mini White Ribbon for the best 3 stem mini in show. This was Itsy Bitsy Splitsy
exhibited by Jon Kawaguchi. 
Sadly, this will be my last post for shows this season as 85% of the shows I scheduled to attend have cancelled due to this
blasted Corona Virus. Never thought I would see this in the 30 years I've been doing this.
