    Ah well, I hope you guys (and gals) all have fun. I'll be able to go to meetings in the future though. Thanks anyway for the offer, Spec.

    Who was there? I made it at 2:30 I would have been there at 1 but our tire blew out and it took an hour and 20 minutes before the came and switched our tire..Thankfully I got there before the show and the raffle, I bought 12 tickets..one guy bought around 30 and won two items..he would have won more but after he got the ones he wanted he handed the tickets to me and I got 2 items from those tickets [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
    The trip was fun and I saw Droseradude and Spec..

    I picked myself up a pump sprayer and a S.Oreophila from raffle and a pot of D.Scorpiodes and a pot with a S.Flava and a D.Capensis..

    I spent 27 though only 17 of that was from the plants I bought..I think I walked away with about $40 worth of plants so I'm happy [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Stephen Davis invited me to join a panel on soil mixes, but asked me on Thursday night. Not enough time to put other things aside to be a part of the panel. I suppose Peter D. and Joe Mazrimas were there. I will try to get to the next meeting, but that depends on what is going on in the bog here at home. I like my plants more than the Society anyway. And they don't give me any trouble.

    I had a very good time at this meeting, and am already looking forward to my next one.

    As a newbie to CP's the panel discussion on soils was quite interesting, although I would have liked to have heard more about soils for bogs. This pretty much focused on container-based cp's. It was quite enlightening for me, but as with many things, the more you learn, the more questions you have. There was definitely alot of food for thought for me.

    I also got some plants as I had hoped for. (Too bad - I would like to post a photo of what I got, but it seems that the forum gallery is down...or has it gone away completely? I read somewhere that it might happen) In any case, I purchased a couple of plants from Don Elkins, who I found to be a really nice laid back guy. Had a real good time talking to him to learn about how to care for the plants I bought from him. So I got a Capensis red ($8) and a Nepenthes ventricosa (was $20...he let me have it for $13 at the end of the show). I also won a Sarracenia in the raffle, even though I only purchased 2 tickets ($2). So all told, I spent $23 plus $3 for parking - for 3 really nice plants, alot of learning, and seeing some really cool plants displayed - pretty darn good day.

    There are a couple of things I regret. One is that I missed out on a great Saracenia from Don. He was asking $15 for it...it is such a beautiful plant. Someone bought it from right under my nose. I got to the meeting at around 12:30...later than what I wanted. If only I'd gotten there 2 minutes sooner...shucks. Well, I will ask Don to bring me one next time he comes [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img]

    Also, I talked to a number of people there, but didn't get any names (except Don). It would have been nice to meet Spec, and others from this forum (based on Slizarus' post, I think I know who he is). Well, I guess that will come with time.
    Were any of the panelists or people that spoke members of this forum?

    The only real bad part was coming home, some idiot lady cut in front of me with her car. I had to slam on the brakes and my plants in front all tipped over (I had them on the floor) [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] Although the Sarrs and Capensis stayed in their pots, Nepenthes fell out along with a bunch of soil [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img]

    I still can't believe I bought a Nepenthes. I hope I havn't got myself in over my head... I just couldn't resist.

    AHA! I was the kid in the white CP sales shirt who was thinking about buying the ventricosa i fell in love with because it looked like a sibuyanensis form the top! So I DID meet you! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    I was half out of it at the meeting... Being sick, spraining my ankle 2 times, falling into a poisonous cactus (and yes, I have swelters on my hands, and my hands have been shaky and spasomy all day, also having temporary arthritus from the poison), almost falling into a 12 foot pit, and while heping Peter D amatos book keeper bring a case of plants in for sale, fell into a stream! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img]

    Yes, i have been clumsy today. But the cactus is making me feel... happy!

    Ahhhh, thank you Spec! And thanks for letting me "have" that plant!

    I believe that was your friend though (the one that was going silly over buying plants) that bought that Sarracenia I REALLY wanted [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] When I got home and told my wife about it, she said I should have offered him $15 for it so he could make $2.50 (he bargained Don to give him 2 plants for $25...good for him). I said, yeah right.

    umm..which sarr? Couldn't be the Flava I bought because that was at the end of the meeting. Must have been Droseradude.

    Interesting to see three of the people you expect to be adults are actually 13-14 eh? Before I met him I thought Spec was 26 and I was convinced till I saw otherwise
