    Thumbs up North Central CP Meeting May 23rd, near Kankakee, Illinois

    This is and update to this thread to include some quick info. The event will be held at my house just outside Aroma Park, Ill. from around 11-4 on Sunday May 23rd. You can PM me or email for more detailed info. See you there !


    As has been discussed in a previous thread there are a couple options for the spring/summer get together. Nathan and I have both offered to host. (Anyone else is welcome to throw in as well.) Nate's place is in Dekalb, Illinois. Mine is in Aroma Park, Illinois just outside Kankakee. This thread is being posted to gauge the interest in either location and to attempt to get a date that agrees with a majority of people. The last 2 gatherings a Nate's were great so anyone that is considering showing up should definitely chime in. We've had a variety of interests that really covers the whole spectrum of cp's. Let's hear from some Iowa, Michigan, Wisconsin, Indiana, and Missouri folks.

    I would love to come if I can. The only dates I know for sure that I cannot make it are mid-July.

    Obviously Aroma Park would be my preference due to distance from me, but you guys decide the location. The location probably will not be the deciding factor for me, but rather the dates.

    Well from IN/KY, any weekend other than 2nd weekend of May or the 18th-28th of June would work out great! Have a road trip to see some wild jonesii and purps in flower and a cruise planned It would be a blast to meet all the many faces I've come to chat with! As for location, both seem fairly close to each other so either or wouldn't make any difference for me.
    Looking forward to making it this year! Thanks Aaron, droseraguy and Nate for organizing this! Sorry if I forgot to thank anyone!

    June works best for me if it is a Saturday. If it is a Sunday, either May or June would be fine.

    Deb and I will come.
    I have already given away most of my surplus plants since I didn't think we were having a meeting this spring, but I do have a few assorted young pings I can bring, and maybe a few D. binatas for trade or giveaway.

    Mark Wilson let me know in a pm that he thinks he should be able to attend anytime, as long as nothing pops up that he's unaware of at the moment. He has a trip to South Dakota planned sometime towards August.

    As for me, either location will work. Nates is closer by about an hour, but if we get more people from the south/southeast committed, then I'm more than happy to drive an extra hour!
    Anytime between May 7th until May 23rd is ideal for me, but I will make it to the gathering regardless of when it is. It's just that I'll be taking a physics class from May 28th until July 2nd. Not like I can't take a day off from studying though!

    Hi All,

    Okay Chris, here's a calendar breakdown for you to get an idea of what we have so far.
    (I corrected it twice!.... hopefully I got it right this time! Guess I can't work at 3am like I used to!)
    Spring Mid-West Gathering:





    I took what everyone said and put it on calendar format.
    (+ is a good day for someone, X is NOT!)
    Don't know if it helps, but this is how scheduling looks so far!
    I thought it would be interesting to see it laid out.

    Hope we hear from more people, and that there is a workable date in the end!!!
    It will be difficult if after all of this, there is no "good" time for everyone!
    Well, can only do the best we can, right!

    I also am shy on good growing plants, but hope to acquire something of interest
    before then, to trade. Even without something utterly fantastic, it is always nice
    to see everyone and to meet new people.
    I might have some odds and ends, like ol' fish tank terrariums and such,
    if anyone is interested.

    Well, it is good to see you are staying on top of this Chris. It is a lot of work to do,
    as Nathan knows also. But it is rewarding in the end... I think!
    Here's to a potentially good time by all!

    By the way Chris,
    how did you convince your wife that this was a "good" thing?

    Good Growin'!
    Paul

    Experience is the best teacher. At least it used to be.
    But then, common sense isn't so common anymore, is it.

    Thanks Paul ! It looks like so far we are looking at Sunday, May 23rd as the best time. Your also right.... I should mention this to my wife. Seriously though she saw how cool everyone was and didn't even bat an eye when I mentioned that maybe we could host.
