Last year I hosted a CP meeting for those of use who are in the central area, we had a great turn out and loads of fun! While we were talking about having a society, but once we all got together we came to the conclusion that an informal trading / gathering session would be the best route. I suggested a spring / fall BBQ and people seemed pretty interested in the idea.

It was amazing how far people were willing to travel, Iowa, southern Illinois, Indiana and even Ohio! Totally surprised me! (was there someone from wisconsin there too??)
I'll be happy to kick this off again, food and beverages will be provided. I'll try to get a grill attendant that is not a vegetarian this time so I don't have to keep bouncing back and forth.
My vault will be of course open for a tours, and I'll have rooted Nepenthes basals for trade / give aways (depending how many come, don't hold me to that!). I could even do a demo of how I root my basals if there's interest.
Saturday May 30th will be my next open house / BBQ event.
151 N 4th Street
DeKalb, IL 60115
For those long distance travelers, think of carpooling as an option! Discuss, trade pm's / emails here. Plenty of time to set something up!
If you are interested in coming out please post your intention here or email me so that I can start to gather an estimate of how many people might come out.
Partners / family members / spouses / friends / etc are all welcome!
I'll post more information here as we get closer to the date. This posting will be the most up to date information about this event.
