AHS Region 11 Meeting

2017 AHS Region 11 Winter Gathering
February 10-12, 2017
Hilton Garden Inn
Independence, Missouri

AHS Region 11 cordially invites all people interested in growing daylilies to attend our annual Winter Gathering in Independence, Missouri at the beautiful Hilton Garden Inn, conveniently located on Interstate 70, with easy access to a variety of restaurants, shopping areas, and the National Frontier Trails Museum or the Harry S Truman Presidential Library. Genealogy buffs will want to arrive early and visit the new Midwest Genealogy Center just minutes away from the hotel, part of the Midcontinent Public Library system. Additional points of interest in the Kansas City area include the Nelson-Atkins Museum, the Kemper Museum, the Arabia Steamboat Museum, and the National World War I Museum, a modern exhibition that meets world-class standards.

In other words, come early or stay late and treat yourself to some of the extra benefits of a winter getaway to the KC Metro area!

Our Winter Gathering is filled with programs of broad interest to gardeners. Since most registrants arrive before dinner time on Friday night, we have scheduled a fascinating program after the dinner hour on "Who Was Arlo Stout and Why Should we Care?" by Gil Stelter.

AHS members who want to train as Garden or Exhibition Judges can take advantage of beginners' classes late Friday afternoon. Note: many people take Exhibition Judge Clinic I just for the wealth of knowledge about daylilies. It's a wonderful learning opportunity, even if there is no intention of going on to become an Exhibition Judge. Likewise, Garden Judge training is about developing powers of observation and the ability to take in the merits of the total plant.

Our principal speakers on daylilies are hybridizer Gil Stelter of Gryphon Gardens in Guelph, Ontario; hybridizer Nan Ripley of Walkabout Gardens in Nevada, Iowa; and daffodil expert, Jason Delaney, horticulturalist with Bellfontaine Arboretum in St. Louis. Our auction will include choice plants from Sandy Holmes, Gil Stelter, Nan Ripley, Kathy Krattli, Patti Waterman, Michael Bouman, and many others.
Our Sunday morning activities include presentations of new work by Region 11 hybridizers. Rick Pearce, our Regional Publicity Director, will coordinate the slide presentations, and Sherryl Fitzpatrick will moderate.

Photo Contest

The local MoKan Daylily Club is helping organize and mount the Region 11 photo contest open to any member of a Region 11 daylily club. Attendance at Winter Gathering is not required. Contest rules will be posted in a separate sheet on the AHS Region 11 Web Site and on the AHS Membership Portal in November. The contest judges are Dennis Calbreath and Laura Hood.  Download contest rules HERE.

Registration Prizes

We will set aside three choice daylilies from among those donated for our auctions to give a prizes in drawings for early registration. One drawing will include the first 25 registrants. Another will be for the first 50 (excluding the winner from the first 25), and a third will be for everybody else! The “Braggin’ Bell” prize will be awarded to the daylily club with the highest percentage of membership attending. Do plan to join us for a wonderful weekend getaway. Make it a Valentine’s Day present for someone special!  Registration form is available HERE.

When it becomes available, more information will also be forthcoming on the Region 11 website: http://www.ahsregion11.org

A .pdf file of this information is available HERE.
