    For anyone who can make it, the December NECPS meeting is on the new schedule, meeting Dec. 13th, at 12:30. Our meetings will now be held the 2nd Saturday of the month from now on.

    We will be having the first annual CP Holiday Gift Swap where participants bring a wrapped CP related gift valued at around $6.00 or less. The gifts will be numbered and members will draw numbers out of a hat to see which gift they get. A related CP gift could be something you make, a potted plant, a pot, a CP toy, a bag of LFS or perlite, etc., anything somehow related to CPs.

    This meeting should be a lot of fun with some very nice things at the auction table including a 1 & 1/2 year old tuberous Drosera gigantea contributed by yours truly.

    Hope to see some new faces!!

    Hey everyone -

    For those of you debating whether to attend the meeting on Saturday...

    In addition to a tuberous Drosera gigantea, I am bringing for the auction table a unique, one of a kind "Cephalotus Holiday Ornament." I just finished sculpting it out of FIMO polymer clay and I will next bake and paint it. It's about 3 1/2 inches tall by 1 1/2 inches wide. I don't have a digital camera, otherwise I would post a picture.

    Also, I just got the following from John Phillip, our NECPS President:

    "The December meeting will feature the presentation of awards from the October Carnivorous Plant show. There will be food and refreshments also to help us celebrate the first year, along with the usual swap table and silent auction. We will also have a Yankee swap for the exchange of presents. What?s a Yankee swap? If you?ve never been to one, I promise that you will enjoy it, the combination of exchanging presents and getting even with the person who outbid you on the silent auction! Members and guests who wish to participate should bring a gift, wrapped if possible, in the $6 range, relating to Plants or Carnivorous Plants. Things like a bag of sand, seeds, a book, anything that might be related to CPs. USE YOUR IMAGINATION!"

    Hope to see some of you there.

    Hey Everyone -

    I just finished the Ceph Ornament! Here's a picture for those who want to see it before the NECPS auction tomorrow (I don't yet have a digital camera, so I just laid it on the scanner).

    I wish I would have made more than one (and kept one for myself!). Maybe next year. Hope to see lots of you on Saturday.
