AIS Region 18 Fall Regional 
October 5 and 6, 2018 
Meeting to Be Held at: 
Hosted by 
The Pony Express Iris Society 
Judges’ Training by 
Bonnie Nichols
Remington Nature Center 
1502 McArthur Drive, St. Joseph, MO 64506 PH: (816) 271-5499 
The Fall Regional meeting will begin at 5:30 pm Friday October 4 with registration. Bonnie Nichols will begin her Novelty Iris presentation at 6:30.   Bonnie graciously offered to step in when our scheduled speaker, Perry Dyer, suddenly passed away.
Following her presentation there will be an executive board meeting which everyone is welcome to attend. If you choose not to do so, the Remington Center has a variety of interesting exhibits. Woolly mammoths welcoming you at the door, birds, fish, a large Indian artifact collection and a model of historic Saint Joseph to name a few. The Pony Express Iris Society has donated many plants and labor to the center so hopefully there will still be something of interest for you to see. 
On Saturday we will reconvene at 8:30 am with judges’ training beginning at 9:00 am. This will be a two hour training on Novelty Iris followed by the Region 18 general meeting. One of the agenda items will be election of officers. After our break for lunch, instead of taking a nap, we will have a plant auction. We will welcome cash or checks. 
The Raddison Hotel located at 102 S 3rd St (816)279-8000 is the closest hotel, though others can be found that are probably not more then 10 to 15 minutes away. Rush hour traffic on Saturday morning is probably nonexistent in our fair city. Hope many of our members plan to attend!
