Foray Headquarters were at the Best Western Kachina Lodge, 413
Paseo Del Pueblo Norte
Double queen bed ($79) and king bed ($89) rooms were
open for reservations (under NM Mycological Society) until 1 August.
As of 28 Jan, there were also 4 deluxe kings available with a
sitting area, which were blocked off from August 13th to the 18th. Foray
Chair Libba Campbell encouraged folks visiting from lower altitudes to
arrive early in order to acclimate to New Mexico elevations. (Taos sits at
7,000 feet, and Foray field trips visited areas above 10,000 ft.)

Webster, Sales Manager.
The Three Graces
Foray Chair Libba Campbell named this event the "Three
Graces" Foray in honor of 3
long-time NMMS members,
Ruth Bronson, and
Ellen Reed, in recognition of
their many contributions to NMMS.
Libba observed, "Collectively, they
have been president
times, foray chair twelve times, newsletter editor six times and secretary
four times, just to
mention some of the things they've given to our organization over the
Three Graces T-Shirts:
Shirts were 100% cotton pre-shrunk, light blue with dark blue
print, and came in adult men's sizes. Pre-Order (before July 21) price for
S-XL was $10. Limited sizes were available at the foray for $15.
XXL ($12) and XXXL ($13) were available only by pre-order.
We added T-Shirts to the Registration
Form on May 10. Libba Campbell
requested that those who had already registered for the Foray (using the
older form) phone or email her to order shirts.
