Is there anything in MN LOL I would love to find a society. No such luck here in GA.
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.
don't move the NECPS show too far south, then it won't be in New England! I can't wait for next year's show. Last year I missed the silent auction! GRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!! WHAT GOT INTO ME?!?!??! WHY DID I LEAVE SO EARLY?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?
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....

Im really hopeing ill make it to the next NECPS show and maybe one of there meetings. A NYCPS would be pretty cool I think or maybe a get together, sense I know there are a couple of members living in close proxcimity of each of other and a couple memebers. Canada is also pretty close....
Since Ron mentioned it, I'm already starting to plan this years Pine Barren trip.
I may be camping in a different area this year, Bass River.
I'll post the details when the time is closer to the trip.
I thought there was a CP society in the Tampa, FL area. May no longer exist. I live on the Fl/Al border and Tampa is still an 8 hour drive. Too far away for me to attend meetings. Need a centrally located CP society/club down south like PK said. Maybe in Fl panhandle- Pensacola, Fl. Or for that matter Atlanta, Ga.,
That's a 16 hour drive for me
