    North Central CP Meeting! Spring 2009

    Howdy everyone!

    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.

    (link to past thread event: http://www.terraforums.com/forums/sh...d.php?p=922853)

    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.

    Address is:

    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.

    Thanks!

    Thanks, once again, for putting this together, Nathan.
    I like the date you picked a lot
    It is early enough that I think I might actually be able to make the trip again!
    I think my summer research starts really early June, so end of May should work nicely.

    Sound good to me off hand. I'll drive for anyone that is around the Kankakee Area wanting to go.

    Oh, a little sooner than I expected.
    If I can get the Friday before off for driving I'll be there.
    Wife will probably come along too.
    Anybody else from down around my way?

    Edit a couple days later...
    Yep, Wife says she would like to come.
    Looks like we will be there.

    Actually, it sounded like there were a few young folks around your age that were interested last time but they thought there would be "issues" with that. Seriously, these are some of the most genuine people you will meet in your life! There's nothing wrong with having your parents drive you and "hang out", too. There could be a seperate meeting at Nathan's house for the parents of young cp addicts, where they can discuss methods of how to cope with their children's addictions to cps.
    Last year my friend and i both went--- we had just graduated high school. Everyone was very friendly and easy to talk with. We had a great time. You should definitely talk to your parents and consider the possibility of making the trip!

    Yeah, it would be pretty fun to go. But it's quite a long drive from here to there (gas prices)... I would definately ask if I could go, if we could afford it.

    tell them it's worth every penny, lol.
    If I'm able to go, I should (hopefully) be able to bring some interesting dews/ tons of seed along!
    It would be great to have a larger swap/sale this year.
