September 5 – 6, 2020
Hosted in Los Angeles, California
“GATEWAY TO DOWN UNDER” at the 2020 Fall Forum and Board Meeting has been planned to coincide with departure for those attending the World Daffodil Convention (WDC) 2020 in Canberra, Australia. You definitely want to be on the “Party Plane” when it departs LAX on SUN evening SEP 6th 2020—bound for Melbourne, Australia, and then onto Hobart, Tasmania for the optional Pre WDC tour!
Our New Zealand friends have planned an optional post WDC tour to the South Island of New Zealand. Please review the New Zealand’s South Island Daffodil Tour information to complete your “Down Under” World Daffodil Convention travels.
- Our Fall Forum hotel, the Los Angeles Airport Marriott will provide you with complimentary airport transportation service. We have negotiated an excellent room rate of $139 per night!
- We will begin our Fall Forum in LAX on SAT afternoon SEP 5th with a daffodil photography show/competition. Look for more details on that soon. Next comes our fun-filled bulb auction, followed by a group dinner and speaker.
- On SUN morning SEP 6th, the ADS Board of Directors will meet. We will gather for a group lunch and then resume our meeting and activities. Program development continues but we are pleased to announce that Nancy Tackett will present a fun travelogue program featuring many Down Under daffodil personalities we will likely encounter on our WDC excursions.
- There will be an informative and educational panel discussion on Staging and Judging Collections in ADS Shows, moderated by Harold Koopowitz. This will be an ADS Judges Refresher opportunity.
We invite everyone to our 2020 Fall Forum. This annual fall gathering is fun and educational and is open to all daffodil lovers. Please come, whether or not you plan to continue your travels to the WDC!
Please save the dates and make your travel plans accordingly. Further details, hotel reservations, and Fall Forum registration information will be available in the very near future.
