The California Coastal Rose Society is delighted to invite all rose lovers to attend the 19th Annual Save the Roses! Auction. The event will take place on Saturday, November 16 through Sunday, November 17 at the QLN Conference Center (located at 1938 Avenida del Oro, Oceanside, CA 92056.)

On Saturday afternoon, there will be a series of power-point presentations by well-known dignitaries of the rose world who are deeply concerned with our efforts to find, multiply and preserve rare and endangered cultivars. Some of these cultivars have already been successfully reintroduced into commerce. The PowerPoint presentations on Saturday provide a unique opportunity for interested purchasers to directly question lecturers about the plants offered or alternatively to offer insights into their own experience with those varieties. The scheduled presenters include:

Each speaker will spend about 45-50 minutes describing plants offered in the SILENT AUCTION. Bids may be placed beginning at noon on Saturday, November 16 and ending noon on Sunday, November 17.

The LIVE AUCTION begins at 1:30 PM on Sunday and traditionally ends by 3:30 PM. Internet bidding is possible and shipping charges are paid by the winning bidders. For those living in inclement weather areas, CCRS members will over-winter your plants at no extra charge if you wish, while awaiting a spring 2020 shipment.

We will also offer "Dinner with the Speakers" at the Green Dragon Tavern on Saturday, November 16 at 5:30 PM. Separate checks will be available and dining is limited to 20 people.

For those requiring room rentals, reduced rates will again be offered at the Carlsbad by the Sea Resort. This property is located about 8 miles from the Auction site via freeways. Those wishing to make alternate room reservations are welcome to do so on their own.

Hope to see you there in November!
