    I hope its somewhere a touch further south or at a huge hub, so it's cheap to get to. Could you even imagine the freakin chaos that would ensue if I showed up?
    AH!! do it! ahha i think it is gonna be in RI... would be nice if it were farther south. travel is expensive!

    I'd like competions like the ugliest planting(with taste not just crude with a plant),
    or the best nepenthes photo,dionea,sarracenia,pinguicula and so on the prize could be something like people would donate a plant for each genera so the winner would get something they do not have or something around those lines.,
    A TF expo would be awsome but it would not happen happen by me,there are no cp societes in oregon there WAS one but according to a few peoples it fizzeled out...
    Surprisingly enough there are many southern oregon growers. I'd love a society in southern oregon since the only one in california is southern cali/LA.
    But someone experienced would need to form one the last one was by a nursery that sorta well pelted there onto members... I know of maybe about 10 members in southern OR alone..

    Howdy JM, there is another society a little closer to Southern Oregon than LA by a few hundred miles - there is the BACPS (Bay Area CPS) -- and the meeting is tomorrow!!! GAWSH DURN - I can't make that one!!! BUT, maybe you could make it if you start driving now?

    I'd love to start a society in the south...but we're so spread out down here. The MS/AL would probably be the best place to meet lol. It's sort of halfway between West Texas and South Florida.

    I've been lucky and have found 3 other growers within an hour and a half drive.
    A few times a year we get together at someones house and talk and trade plants.

    In addition to the NECPS, there are periodic, somewhat random, smaller events that occur.

    John Hummer has a small get-together, tour of his bog a few times each summer (a search will locate some commentary & pics). If you haven't been to his place before, it's really amazing to see everything growing in a natural bog area. This is just north of Richmond, iirc.

    In addition, elgecko has organized at least 1 Pine Barrens camping, boating, exploring trip for the last 2 summers (again - pics & commentary posted - there may be several people's pics over in the ICPS forums). I only made a cameo 2 years ago but this past summer, my wife & I made it and the group of us had a blast.

    Iirc, about 3 years ago, Dave Evan held a barbecue at his place where we got some good food and a tour of all of his plants and growing areas in addition to the inevitable, very interesting, never-ending CP conversations....
    All the best,
    Ron
