The seventeenth Annual NDGA Convention was held in Little Rock, AR. The Convention was decidedly a group effort, led by Chairman Bob Schmidgall. He was assisted by Judy Schmidgall, Tom Purdy, Charlotte Purdy, Esther Mitchell, Scott Dunlap and Jennifer Dunlap. The Display Coordinators were Dorothy Fletcher and Bonnie Koeninger, and the Preview Party Coordinator was Denise Fleming. The event was held at the Hall of Industry. The Saturday night Banquet was held on the Arkansas River (OK, on a boat ...) - a wonderful dinner cruise.
There were two Seminars presented at the Convention, with the first one presented on both days. Here are the speakers and their topics:
Here are the 36 dealers who participated in the Glass Show part of the Convention in Little Rock. These folks traveled from all over the Country, bringing their best glass.
We don't have photographs of all of the displays at the 1991 event, but those that we do have are listed below. Click on the thumbnail picture in the table below to see a larger version of the same shot. Thanks to member Myrna Garrison for scanning the photographs, which were taken at a time when digital photography did not exist. The displays for which we don't have pictures have the question mark in place of the thumbnail. If anyone has the missing shots, please send them to the webmaster for inclusion here.
