Conference Wine Tasting and Banquet
The conference banquet will be held in one of the Napa Valley's oldest and
most respected wineries, the Inglenook Winery. The Winery's century old
stone chateau houses a world class collection of award winning wines.  The
banquet will begin with a customized private tour and sensory evaluation of
several vintage wines.  Appetizers will be passed during this time.  At the
conclusion of the tour, we will be seated in the midst of wine casks and
candlelight.  Two wines, especially selected to complement the meal, will be
served during the three course meal. Banquet tickets are limited and cannot
be sold after October 26, 1994.  Tickets are $35.00 per person.

Conference Connection will assist parents in locating suitable child care ar
rangements.  If you are interested, please contact them as soon as possible,
but no later than September 16th.
