    North Texas CP Society

    Hey everyone,

    I'm testing the waters on a North Texas CP Society. I know there are a couple people on the forums that are in/close to the DFW area. I'll be moving there myself on about July 18th. Of course, everyone is welcome, and OKC isn't all too far from DFW. I'm not entirely too familiar with the DFW area, but I know there is a decent sized botanic gardens pretty close to my school's campus. There are a lot of Dallas members though, so I guess it'd be more beneficial for everyone if we met halfway in Grand Prairie. Again, I have no idea what all is out there that we could use. Ideas for possible locations appreciated.

    I'd like to see if there is enough interest to make a society worthwhile and large enough to last. Anyone with any interest, please post here to show it. You can either post it here, or PM me your contact information so we can get a preliminary list going.

    Thanks

    Well I am very interested in it. I have wanted a CP society closer than California for a long time.

    Can you PM me your email address?
    Here, I can only PM 5 people at a time, which makes it hard to facilitate mass messages. Also, this thread will probably get buried, so I think an email list is probably best.

    Come on! I know there are more Texas and that area people on these forums! If the meetings are held in DFW, OK, AR, and LA aren't too far away. Come on out of the woodwork
    I tried to PM some people by using the member search feature, but didn't PM anyone that is shown as having a last log on not in 2008. If anyone knows the other 50 or so people I didn't PM because they haven't signed on in a year or two, please get the word out. Also if you know anyone not on the forums, etc. I've posted here, and at the local cp society section at the ICPS forum as well.

    Sounds good to me... although I live south of Houston, so my participation level may be rather low.

    Good deal. Can I get your email address?

    I think meetings every once in a while for the people in the immediate area would be good, with an annual big event would probably work best. That way, people from further out in the state can have an excuse to make the trek at least once a year

    Yo, I'm totally there. For those of you North Texas folks that haven't responded, you don't know what you are missing by not having a CP society: plant trades, plant auctions, people to talk to in person about cultivation, and field trips.

    Check out the New England Carnivorous Plant Society: http://www.necps.org/

    Here's some pics from a previous show:

    Helle my DFW ppl!
    I am definitely interested in getting something like this going. I had searched for a cp society in the past and was shocked that no such thing yet existed. This may be the beginning of something amazing that I would gladly be a part of. I will participate however I can when Im not busy with work/college/... etc. What college are you attending Phission?
