20th ANNUAL GEEK DINNER and AUCTION  May 22, 2020

Can you believe it has been 21 years since the first Geek Dinner? What a great tradition and a great way for anyone to have dinner and celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the American Iris Society! Have you heard how much fun the Geek Dinner and Auction are? It isn’t about Geeks anymore, just friendly irisarians. Just join a bunch of great iris folks for a dinner and good conversation among iris friends and then door prizes and an auction for great entertainment.

After having spent your day getting off the tour bus …rushing around the garden trying not to miss anything … then getting back on the bus to the next garden to repeat the same thing again … there is no better way to wind down your day than a relaxed evening with friends at the Geek Dinner reviewing all those iris that are now on your “wish list.”

Then the real fun for the night… the Geek Dinner Auction where you get to bid on new iris introductions, gift certificates from commercial iris growers, and iris themed items. The proceeds from the auction go directly into the American Iris Society Electronics Services fund that sponsors such things as online AIS Bulletin archives, and other electronic services.

Oh, and of course there are some great door prizes.  (This year to pay for auction items, in addition to cash and check, we will have a credit card payment option available)

Now is the time to make plans for the, 21th annual Geek Dinner being held during the AIS 2020 Centennial Convention. Meet new friends and catch up with old ones.
