We are planning an exciting convention, which will begin Thursday evening, June 22, with an offsite, casual reception at a local brewery. Transportation will be provided.
Friday will begin with a town hall on seed testing practices and labeling procedures with guests from USDA and state and private seed labs.
Lunch on Friday will feature guest speaker Dave Johnson, former Olympic decathlete and current coach at South Salem High School.
After committee and general meetings conclude Friday, join us for a casual, tailgate-themed outdoor reception to honor OSA’s past presidents. Show your team spirit by wearing your favorite sports team’s colors or gear and compete against others in several lawn games.
Saturday activities include the annual golf tournament, a lava cave guided tour, white water rafting, or take the family to play arcade games and putt-putt golf.
The convention will close with a country hoedown, “Boots, Chaps & Cowboy Hats.” Come dressed in boots and cowboy hats, and maybe your biggest belt buckle. After dinner entertainment will feature music, dancing and a line dance coach.
