    this thread keeps popping up and tempting me , any one in virginia going, im thinking of going and would be more than happy to ride share .
    I know this is late notice, but pm me if your interested.
    Do i have to be a memeber of the NECPS, to visit the show? and can I decide if i would like to join after Im there?
    Im trying to amp myself up to make the long trip, it will be two days for me if i make it, its over 600 miles and I don't fly.
    I'll leave the bedford va area noonish , get a room , at about 2/3 the way or so , then drive in on sat to the show , then back on the road after the show. Will try make it about 1/2 the way back , get another room sat night, from which ill leave sunday morning, to finish the trip back into va.
    I can carry two comfortably in my civic , four doors but gets a little crowded with four adults. the back seat is fine for one. but I would not want to be the second back there, as its a little cramped for me at 6'3".

    Hey Quogue! It's almost time!

    Great pictures as always, WildBill. I have your print, that Ozzy is holding in the above pictures, hanging in my office, and I get compliments on it all the time.

    No, you do not need to be a member to visit the show.

    It is open to the public and it is our biggest annual event to promote carnivorous plants. You do need to be a NECPS member to participate in the NECPS members-only silent auction (which is way cool, and not normally advertised.) The silent auction can get cut-throat as we often have plants that are difficult to find on the auction table.

    If you are on this forum and you not yet an NECPS member, please make yourself known at the show.

    Does the show rotate sites from year to year on a regular schedule?

    It is normally at the Roger Williams Botanical Garden, but we did have one show at the University of Rhode Island one year when our show space was under construction.

    Just scored a hotel using Priceline's name your own price. 40 bucks (with fees it comes to $53)! Includes a 'breakfast.'

    Did the Providence area, and chose the #2 option, "Airport" region, for a 2 star hotel.

    I finished up the slides for my presentation today, and will start packing things tomorrow. I'll have a table again like last year's. I'm bringing some Heli's, Hummer's Giants, fresh flytrap seeds, random sarrs and flytraps, and some of of those prints Ozzy was holding in the picture.

    My S. purpurea 'Connecticut" has sent up a flower just in time for the show!
