1982 Convention - Denver, Colorado

The Eighth Annual NDGA Convention was held at Stouffer's Denver Inn in Denver, Colorado, on July 2-4, 1982. The Chairmen of the Convention was Helen Johnson, with Grace Barlow acting as Glass Show Chairman. The Convention was sponsored by the Rocky Mountain Depression Glass Society. This Convention was a bit unusual, in that there was a sneak Preview on Friday, but the Convention and Show ran from 11am to 9pm on Saturday, with no banquet. Instead, there was a "Stockman's Brunch" held on Sunday morning, with the Glass Show opening at noon and running until 6pm. These long hours have not been repeated since.
