    Yes, you need to follow the link and register if you want to attend. There is no cost for pricescopers for the GIA lectures, and the luncheon on Saturday is provided courtesy of Pricescope!

    Regarding the drawing:
    All qualified members registering for the event will be entered into a drawing. The lucky winner will receive round trip domestic airfare and 3 nights hotel accommodations courtesy of Whiteflash!

    (If you should win and happen to be driving to Carlsbad, we ask that you gift the plane ticket portion to another pricescoper.)

    OK @Texas Leaguer, you talked me into RSVP'ing! It was great to meet so many PSers this past weekend, and I look forward to meeting more.
    Thank you for graciously hosting the events. :appl:

    Thank you so much! I look forward to meeting you and your entourage. I wasn't going to enter the drawing because I live close by, but I guess if I enter and win, I can donate it to a PS friend who wants to come and can't afford it. Now that's a Win Win scenario courtesy of Whiteflash! =)2

    Wow, I have to agree - that is SO special! I've been an on/off student of GIA through the distance education courses. It would be really wonderful to experience the campus! Pretty incredible.

    If you don't mind me asking, do you know by which date we will know if PSers are able to bring guests? I have a friend in mind that I'd like to invite, but I don't want to dangle that carrot (or carat! or karat, even...) unless there is a guest spot able to be filled. She's a major gem lover but hasn't spent time on PS.

    Thanks again for this amazing opportunity! I went to a small PS GTG and had the most wonderful time hanging out with kindred spirits. I see this being the same but EVEN BETTER!

    Wow! Definitely within driving distance. I so wish I could go, it'll be my first GTG. Alas, I have a friend's wedding in Oregon to attend! :cry2::cry2:

    I have just received word that our guests will get special tours of the GIA campus and the many wonderful gem, mineral and jewelry displays housed there.

    Stay tuned for more info on the presentations and tours.

    *Make sure that if you want to attend you sign up as soon as possible as space will be limited.

    I am so bummed that I can’t go. :confused2: Maybe next one?? I’m trying to get to one!!!! (Last one fell between prom and graduation for my twins and as it approached, they started going nuts and I realized I had to stay home and hold down the fort).

    I am really pleased to announce that one of our speakers will be one of the world's foremost experts on cut quality. Many of you know of Al Gilbertson from having read his excellent book on the history of the ideal cut. A little bit about him here:
    https://www.gia.edu/gia-news-press/gilbertson-bonanno-award

    He will be talking about cut quality - history, evolution, and future. He has a wealth of knowledge to share and there will be ample time allotted for Q&A, some come prepared to get you questions answered!

    Hi Lovedogs, you're on our list and I sent you a confirmation on July 3. I just resent it right now for you as well. It would come from my username at pricescope.net.

    Thanks to everyone who has signed up so far to participate in this outstanding event. If you have received confirmation from Pricescope then you are automatically entered into the drawing for free domestic air fare AND hotel accommodations courtesy of Whiteflash.

    If you have not signed up yet, please do so soon. Space at the event will be limited, and you DO NOT want to miss out on the drawing!

    Drawing will be held before the end of this month. Date to be announced very soon.

    I'll be joining the festivities! We have passes to Legoland so they'll hang out there while I play with bling. Can't wait!
