1999 Convention - Little Rock, Arkansas

The 25th Annual Convention of the NDGA was held in Little Rock, Arkansas on July 10-11, 1999. The show chairman was Dorothy Fletcher, Little Rock Fairgrounds and the facility chosen was the Fairgrounds, conveniently located off Interstate 30. The banquet on Saturday night was held at Murry's Dinner Playhouse, with entertainment being the comedy "A Bad Year for Tomatoes."

We have only a list of the dealers and displays at the Little Rock Convention of 1999. We would really like to have a program so that we can document the speakers and seminars. If you can supply this information, please contact the webmaster.
