    Starting an Illinois/Midwest CP Society`

    There really is no well established carnivorous plant society for Illinois and most of the midwest region. I think that it would be a good idea to start a society with at least meetings to share cuttings and talk about growing carnivorous plants in the midwest. I would like to start this organization, and I have the resources, but unfortunately I lack knowing enough growers in the area. I would much appreciate your help in starting up the society and knowing if there are enough avid growers to make this happen. For more details contact me at chungfish@comcast.net or respond on the thread. There was talk of a midwest cps in 2004 http://terraforums.com/forums/showth...idwest+society but that seems to have fallen through. I would want a society with regular meetings and maybe a convention of sorts.
    Thanks,
    Peter Chung

    Oh. well wouldn't you think that we should make a more formed organization, with a website and a forum and maybe a convention? Sorry if I come across strong, but I don't really think that a group that meets twice a year can be called a society. 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.

    Kind of.... I guess we are all too spread out and/or busy to have more than one meeting that some can attend. If there were a formal group I'm sure more localized folks would attend and it would grow. I don't disagree with your thinking though. For now I'm gonna try to make it to Indy this year !

    I glad there is interest sparking! I am going to set up a website and a proboards forum in the near future and would love your help especially if we set up a board of sorts.

    So I took the liberty to make a forum
    http://midwestcps.proboards.com/index.cgi
    and a Facebook page
    http://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Mi...44295738931828
    Could we move the discussion to the this forum?

    I would be interested in the forum aspect, especially if it were to increase opportunities to get to know and trade with people in this region of the country, but I would still be too far away myself to get to any meetings...

    Thanks, that's why I made the forum! I think that the trading/selling rules on my forum will be more relaxed than here.
