Registration began bright and early this morning and Master Gardeners began pouring in, along with silent auction items. Once again, we had cloudy skies, but for a few brief showers the weather held. Let’s hope the trend continues tomorrow. The trade show was doing a brisk business.

Registration went on until 7 pm and all but 30 had arrived by closing time. A bad accident and construction caused some heavy delays, but people finally arrived with plenty of time to do the downtown tours.

All afternoon there were seminars

At 3 pm, buses started loading for a round robin tour of downtown Texarkana, ending at the Texarkana Country club for a wonderful dinner and relaxation.

Then it was back to the hotel to pick up silent auction items and do a bit of cleanup. The skies had cleared and there were some amazing night skies.

It has been a full day with another one tomorrow, so I am off to bed!
