Garden addresses (and maps) to gardens will be distributed in the Dogwood Room in the DoubleTree, with welcome refreshments prior to our meeting Friday evening, and open again 7-8 the following morning for maps and information.
Morning refreshments and lunch on Saturday are included in the registration fee of $30, $50 per couple. Bentonville and Rogers have ample dining possibilities for small groups, but at this time, larger group arrangements are unclear. Related to the COVID pandemic, regular meal and bus service to tour gardens were difficult to secure far enough in advance without limiting the number for those attending. A lunch on Saturday is planned, with the location determined by the headcount. Parking at the neighborhood gardens is limited, so car-pooling is encouraged and will be coordinated. Depending on the number of registrants, different time schedules for the gardens will be provided to keep the number of garden visitors balanced.
Please make check payable to NWADS (Northwest Arkansas Daylily Society), $30 per individual, $50 for two postmarked before June 1, 2021. Late registration, $40/$60, Confirmation sent by E-mail.
