Even though the group is small, if we get the public involved with a open meetings, it should expand quickly. If we talk to the NECPS guys I'm sure we could get something with some real structure and maybe monthly meetings up and running. I am hopeful and happy to work with you.
    "Twice a year" makes a great society IMO!
    The problem with "local" CP clubs, is that most of the time, there just arent enough people within a short distance to support any kind of real group that can meet on a regular basis..maybe Chicago, London, etc. can pull it off..but I know of only three CP growers in Western NY, and we are pretty spread out..No one can reasonably make a monthly meeting, every month..its just too far to drive! Im not saying it cant be done! but this is a well known issue/problem when it comes to CP clubs specifically...monthly meetings just arent practical..twice a year, or even once a year "conventions" are a lot more doable, and apart from that, the club has to mostly exist in the virtual world..

    Of course then the midwest is chicago, with meetings probably at the chicago botanical gardens. So using your logic, we should be able to pull it off!

    If I can get my act together, I should be able to host another meeting this fall.

    I'd love to work with you in hosting a meeting at the chicago botanic gardens. Can you please make an account on the forum? http://midwestcps.proboards.com/

    The reason I say the botanic gardens, not your place is that I believe that getting the public involved is the best way to save these unique plants from extinction.
