    Carnivorous Plant "Events"

    Hi all,

    Perhaps I have simply missed them, but are there regular meetings, sales, expo's, get-togethers etc. among all the growers here or even in general? Because Terraforums is such a close knit little community, I would think that news about plant shows and other events like that would spread like wildfire but somehow they seem to be rarely mentioned. Then again I could just be out of the loop

    Could it be that these kinds of things just happen more often during the spring and I am only noticing this now? Is it that the groups are secretly guarded and restricted by location, or could I be wrong all together in assuming these "events" even take place (I hope this isn't the case haha)!

    I really do enjoy this forum. The people I have met and the information they have generously provided have all been wonderful, but getting to meet people face to face and maybe seeing plants, set-ups, etc. first hand are separate entities within themselves. Such events would be nice little supplements to the vast amount of info here on the forums. There must be others who feel this way as well.

    Have I just been oblivious to these "events" ?

    Thanks for your time,
    -J.P.

    Well you're in VA, so you have NECPS. There's the 2 or whatever societies in Cali, and us in the south have absolutely nothing. AFAIK, the midwest has nothing either. There's no TerraForums Expo or anything I know of, but it'd be sweet.

    We also tend to not have open days in the US, because our country is huge. Lots of people advertise them on CPUK, but if we all lived in an area the size of Minnesota, we could do that too.

    yea dude! you should go to the next NECPS show this year! its crazy fun!

    the only events we get here like PK said are the society meetings and shows. we need a southern and midwest CP society. so many people grow in the south...however not so much in the midwest.

    A Terraforums Expo would be pretty awesome...

    Do we know the date for the next NECPS?

    Is it gunna be in RI again? Gawd I hope not. What an awful and corrupt state (but ANYWAY)....
    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?
