I was thrilled to attend the Rangeline MG event, especially after the support and help your group provided for the Northlands Garden Show in the Spring. I got several ideas to add to our Show for next year. I was especiially impressed with the speakers, Drs. Tomesh and Oslund. I was sorry to hear that the change in WI administration caused the loss to future MGs and students of such talent as Dr. Tomesh; I will certainly use his information about vertical gardening for my own garden next year. I purchased Dr. Oslund's book; I'm sure I will use it as a reference for many years to come.

Linda "Cricket" D Great day! Lots of good things to eat. The speakers were interesting and I learned a lot. Bought some neat gifts from the vendors for Christmas presents. Won some great jelly and ceramic nuthatches from the silent auction. Won a terrific plant as a door prize! Haven't even killed it yet! All in all a really fun day. Three cheers to all the master gardeners who worked so hard to get it to all come together!

A very nice conference-good vendors, snacks and lunch were delicious, the speakers were knowledgeable and I liked the silent auction. Great idea to raise money for your club! The only criticism I have is I didn't appreciate Dr. Tomesh's opening remarks. Speakers should refrain from using a Garden Conference venue to express their political views.

A really nice conference, good topics, I plan to try more trellising in my garden. This was my first Range MG conference; I'll definitely come back. Great speakers, great prizes and silent auction, great food. The only suggestion I have is to have a bigger room, it was hard for some people to see the screen and getting around the tables was difficult at times.

What a super day...all of the speakers were very interesting with great handouts-plenty of information to take home and put to use right away (such as the seed collecting)...the lunch & treats were delicious as always...good selection of vendors with lots of interesting materials (especially liked being able to purchase the bulbs and plants at this time of year)...also tremendous amount of materials for give-aways (WOW whomever had to collect and ask for all of that did a super job). Will definitely be looking forward to your next conference.

The day was awesome. Very organized and the speakers were very knowledgeable. Been to many of these and yours was the best organized of all, they stayed on time and got the speech in instead of going off on other subjects like some have a tendancy to do. Loved it and would do it again. Long drive, but well worth it. We would recommend it to others for sure.

I used a lot of kleenex - nope not tears - just a cold coming on. Even with that I loved the day and learned a lot. I would recommend this conference to anyone who gardens because of the quality of speakers, terrific organization, fun things to see, buy and do, really good food and yummy treats. Most of all the information was broad and I am sure that everyone went away with new ideas, more information and some thoughts about next years plans. Thanks for all the hard work.

I really enjoyed it! The speakers were outstanding. I was a little concerned about not having classes to choose from when I registered, but even things I wasn't as interested in as others were, still, interesting! The lunch and the day-long food supply was yummy and it was nice that it was available like all the time. Lots of great door prizes, silent auction items, raffle item (even though I didn't win it). The room turned out to be comfortable, seemed a little crowded at times but not really anything that couldn't be dealt with and got to know my neighbors a little. Room got chilly once for a short time but evened out and was comfortable. The vendors were interesting and friendly. Hope to make it back for the next one!
