    Hey all,

    Just wanted to mention that the next BACPS Annual Show & Sale is coming up real quick now. It's going to be Saturday, August 26th at the Lake Merritt Garden Center in Oakland, CA.

    It's going to be great! Dominic Diaz is running the show this year and he has done a great job of making some real improvements. It looks like a good vendor turnout and we are going to have some special guests that are bringing some special plants!

    Hope you all can make it. Be sure to bring plants to enter in the show for judging, or just for display. We are trying to educate the public about these plants and we need to show them some great specimens AND a lot of variety.

    Check the web site's bulletin: www.bacps.org/2006August
    And the show specifics: www.bacps.org/show.html

    I hope we can see you all there. Who is going to make it?

    Thank you Stephen for the post!

    The Show and Sale is always a fun event to meet new CP enthusiasts, pick up a few new plants (from any of a number of great vendors or RAFFLE), and of course see GREAT plants! This year will mark the BACPS's Fifth Show and promises to please everyone from the most novice of growers to long-time aficionados. If you have a well-grown plant that you are proud of, bring it! If you want to see well-grown plants, join us! Don't be intimidated by the competition either. We have a display table as well that serves to help educate the public on our fascinating obsession with growing carnivorous plants.

    Another thing I will throw out there that may peak your interests- We will have CP royalty in attendance: An author of a wildly popular CP book and owner of a carnivorous plant nursery, a soon-to-be published CP book author and extensive conservationalist, the co-founder of the Carnivorous Plant Newsletter, and many more!!!

    As Stephen pointed out, information regarding the show is available at the links in the previous post. Those wanting to enter plants will find links regarding entry guidelines and directions to the venue. Anyone willing to volunteer is also welcome. You may contact me at KingDom079@aol.com.

    Don't let this opportunity slip by to meet some new people, make some new friends, and walk away with some new plants! Everyone in attendance will receive a free raffle ticket! We look forward to seeing you there!

    I hope to make it, but I really can'y say if I'll be able to.

    Wish me luck in convincing my parents in to it. :;

    By the way BACPS members, and anyone else that wants to help, I've been going around the area dropping off flyers (http://www.bacps.org/flyer2006.pdf) for the last week and a half at nurseries, pet stores, and anywhere else that I thought there might be an interest. Today I dropped one off at this local reptile shop. Talk about hitting the market square on! The owner is in the middle of a move and desperately wants to go. He might even go in spite of his move that day. All his employees were begging for time off and the customers that were in there got all excited and will be there. I spent nearly 20 minutes in there before I could drag myself out. Plus, we got at least 5 more attendees in just that 20 minutes PLUS he wants to grow some CP outside and in the shop!

    It's also in all the pet shops and a huge aquarium store in the area.

    Who is going to be there and where are you coming from? I've gotten emails from San Diego, car loads are coming from LA, Sacramento, Modesto and the far northern reaches of CA.

    There is good news on the vendor front for the show. We are only missing one vendor we have had in the past, and are expecting more tables being taken up than ever before. It should be a good show.

    This is going to be our first multi-media show, and we shall see how that works out.

    We have had more people visit our site looking for information than ever before too. So we are expecting a good turn out. (Ignore the counter on the page, it was reset when we made a bunch of changes on Monday or Tuesday)

    At any rate, we are looking forward to seeing everyone there!
