Extending the First Registration Deadline...

By a couple of weeks - New date: November 15th. I know many people have been pre-occupied with the fires and some of you were even being evacuated. Hopefully this will give you a little more time to sign up and one less thing to worry about getting done.

We're getting full - but will continue to take registrations until we reach our goal of 200!

July 29th Update

I hope you are all enjoying your summer, I know I am.

Congratulations to Christine, our RAK winner! Be looking for a goodie box in the mail this week.

Some of you have emailed me with questions about hotels near Edwards Mansion. Luckily, right around the corner there are 2... You can look into Dynasty Suites or Comfort Inn. I know Dynasty Suites is pretty nice and have had friends and family stay there with no complaints. Comfort Inn is right off the freeway and may be too loud.

Donations and sponsors keep coming in and I'm excited to share these are the latest supporters:

Stephanie TaFoya (who has a beautiful magazine coming out soon - Homegrown Hospitality) (there will be very creative prizes at the crop...just wait and see!!)

Get those registrations in...the crop will sell out before you know it!!

Have a great week,
