    Get Ready For The Sixth Annual Necps Show!!

    OK folks, it's nearing that time of year again - mark your calendars and start making your reservations for an absolutely fantastic time.

    The Sixth Annual New England Carnivorous Plant Society Show will be:

    September 27 - 28, 2008.
    The Botanical Center At Roger Williams Park
    Providence, Rhode Island


    Last year we had hundreds of plants on display, representing every genus. There were puddles of drool on the floor especially around Jeff's cephalotus display. Myriads of people excitedly learning about and sharing information about carnivorous plants.

    There was plenty of loot at the NECPS society table too, and for folks who are or become NECPS members the insanely awesomely cool 'not for the public' loot in the backroom silent auction. I think Dr. Matt of UCONN donated a Roridula or two last year - where else will you EVER get one of those!

    The NECPS sponsors (the frog guys) from Massachussetts will be there as a vendor, and usually donate to the back room auction.

    On Saturday night we usually all go out to eat and have a rockous time.

    By the way, these posters are available, 11 x 14, suitable for framing. I'm not sure yet if they can be purchased through flytrapshop.com. Schloaty, any word? John has had them printed.








    I can't wait, it's like waiting for Christmas...

    I love the first pic "Field of Screams". Wouldn't mind purchasing that one. Please let us know how to do so when you can. Thanks for the info.

    At this time, I believe I am going! I'm excited. I was disappointed I didn't win the posters in the NASC auction, so I'm going to rip some off the walls at the show.

    Anyone have a good hotel recommendation?

    Hey Xvart -

    Last year my wife and I did the Priceline/Expedia thing and got a great hotel room for like 50 bucks! The hotel wound up being an extended stay near the airport about 10 minutes away with a kitchen too.

    Hey Ant -

    If your Mom can't take you, maybe you could catch a ride with someone else who is going. There should be lots of folks from Massachussets going.
