Red Stripe Now In Stock at HLCCA On-Line Store

For those of you who missed this year's conference--or who just can't get enough of the fabulous new Retro Red Stripe Fiesta--10-inch dinner plates (individual or sets of 4) and Tom & Jerry mugs are now available in limited quantities on the HLCCA website. Be sure to stock up for the holidays!

UPDATE 9/25/09, 7:55 AM PDT: Wow! With the overwhelming response, the plates sold out almost immediately. We're ordering more. Mugs are still available.

UPDATE 9/26/09, 9:42 AM PDT: Fewer than 30 mugs remain available.

The poll results are in....

...and, with nearly 300 votes casts, Kansas City narrowly beat Seattle (41% to 39%), with Atlanta and San Antonio trailing far behind (8% and 10%, respectively). This is just about the exact opposite on the voting at the 2009 HLCCA business meeting in July 2009, where Seattle came out slightly ahead of Kansas City. Therefore, in the Fall 2009 edition of The Dish, we've included a mail-in ballot for the 4 contender cities.

  • Atlanta, GA

  • Kansas City, MO

  • San Antonio, TX

  • Seattle, WA
The Board will weigh the final results of all of these votes before deciding on the location of the 2012 HLCCA Conference. Mail-in votes are due by October 10, 2009. In the meantime, planning continues on the 2010 HLCCA Conference in Nashville, TN, and the 2011 HLCCA Conference in Pittsburgh, PA (commemorating the 75th anniversary of the introduction of Fiesta dinnerware).
