    Hey Ant -

    What do you mean by a meeting spot? I'm sure you'll meet everybody! I'm the guy in the upper left of that TF members picture. Come find me and I'll introduce you to anyone you want to meet. If you don't see me, I will most likely be in the classroom. I'm slated to give two lectures each day.

    If you have a camera by all means bring it.

    Man, I wish I'd thought of this sooner - too bad we all can't wear Terraforums T-Shirts or something.

    Ant - if you have any plants you want to display, bring them. We will be having a member's favorites table too. If you have a favorite, write a paragraph or two about why and print it to place next to the plant. Another display will be "The Ugly Pot Contest." If you can find some tacky, hideous thing at a Tag sale or Thrift store you can set your potted CP in it for that display. Also, there will be a non-CP table display for things like orchids or other non carnivores that look really good.

    I don't think any of us sleep the night before from the excitement!

    Keep your eye out for these on the way to the show.....

    We made about 10 magnetic bumper stickers, and spread them around the New England area geographically:

    I'm currently in the Chicago O'Hare airport for the next five hours... Dang layovers! They haven't even posted my departure flight on the boards, so I have no idea where to camp out, yet.

    Done! I may have a headstart since I might drink O'Hare out of business since I have too much time to kill, lol.

    I dropped off some things yesterday, including a couple of fluorescent lights and loads of plants for the NECPS table.

    Now I'm packing up my display plants. Tonight I'll finish up my slides for my talks. I plan to get there around 7:30 am tomorrow.

    IT'S GONNA BE GREAT!!!!
