It looks great! Inquiring minds want to know. Anyone know where next year's convention will take place?

I've never even heard of this convention !
Hmmm......this does look very appealing and worth looking in to.
I hope one of the speakers addresses the current chili thrip issue.

It would be nice if they also addressed the RRD issue, but I suspect that is Tabu.

@jerijen
Regarding RRD issue, what would you like the talk/ discussion to include?
Understand if you `pass` on this query.

I think about raising public awareness.
When a rose is purchased it could have an id tag, a care tag, and a RRD info tag.
Just some basics, more eyes on the look out for it.

Tisha -- A preponderance of attendees at this convention are almost certainly from the West Coast, and I just wish that they were made aware of the disease, the current events relative to it, and procedures to follow if it shows up.

But I don't believe rose societies are willing to discuss it -- and that's like sticking your head in the sand so you can't see the locomotive heading straight for your fundament.
