    Oh we had a great time, it was wonderful to meet everyone.

    JMatt
    Was your the the tank with all the unbelievable Cephalotus? If so I did get some nice photos of it. If it was some other one I'm sure I took some of it as well. I ended the trip with 1,267 photos, just under 4 gb worth. As soon as I have time I will upload most of them to a web site for all to see.

    That's Matt with his amazing Roridula, which took 3rd place in the CP contest. Matt did a presentation on growing Roridula on Sunday morning. He donated a R. gorgonias and a R. dentata to the silent auction too. They were each nearly a foot tall.

    In the picture of me, I'm holding a Nepenthes northiana x veitchii which Richard won thru a NECPS silent auction. Jeremiah - did you get any pics of the peristome on it? Over my shoulder is a painting of a bug's eye view of S. leuco with a wasp trapped inside.

    Any reports from folks who went on the field trip(s) There was a slide presentation on the bog areas the night before and it looked just beautiful but Dena and I were unable to go. They said something like thousands of S. purps were in one of the bogs.

    OK Jeremiah.....time to make EVERYONE jealous - what plants & seeds did you bring home?

    Jeff - I got a shot but it's huge. I need to resize it in photoshop. Dave S. may have one too.

    Glider14, unfortunately the next ICPS meeting won't be in the USA for several years. We'd love to have you visit the NECPS Show in October if you are anywhere near Providence, RI.
