Tea Leaf Journeys West—The Upcoming Convention
By Annalea Robeson, Convention Chair
The convention committee has been hard at work planning our weekend in Chesterfield, MO. Soon enough we will find ourselves gathering at the DoubleTree Hotel and Conference Center for an-other great convention.
The Tea Leaf Club has a special convention room rate of $115, and this rate includes breakfast! For each night you stay, you will receive one voucher per person (up to 4 per persons per room). Call now to reserve you room: 636-532-5000. The address is DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel, 16625 Swingley Ridge Rd, Chesterfield, MO, 63017. Or make your hotel reservations online at
We start Thursday evening with dinner. This will be a very casual evening to gather together as a group. There is no formal program, just great conversation and, as always, talk of Tea Leaf.
Friday starts with a tour of two great venues in St. Louis - the Ulysses S. Grant Historical Site and the Cathedral Basilica of Saint Louis. Later in the afternoon, the hospitality room will be open giving another chance to gather together. The evening festivities will include an interactive education program and the ever popular Table Sales. Finally, wind down the evening with the After-Hours Party.
Saturday offers another educational program where we will travel west with a piece of Tea Leaf, starting with its manufacture in England and following it until it lands at the convention in St. Louis. With our travels complete, we will have lots of time for the auction preview. This will help accommodate the changes in the auction format. The auction starts after lunch and continues after the dinner break. The evening will end, once again, with the After-Hours Party.
Before you head back home on Sunday, be sure to join us in the hotel restaurant for a farewell breakfast gathering. This is a perfect time to see each other one last time before saying our goodbyes, and you can use your breakfast coupons!
We hope you are as excited about the convention as we are. Come for the weekend and join us as Tea Leaf Journeys West!
