    I'm planning on attending my first Bay Area Carnivoruous Plant Society meeting this Saturday at the UC Botanical Gardens. I'm hoping to see lots of nice CP's and perhaps see some good deals on some affordable ones.

    I'd be interested in hearing from those that are planning on going or those that have gone before. Suggestions/comments on parking, etc.

    Another PFT BACPS member! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    You picked the best meeting. this meeting is going to be a BIG one (lots and lots o plants) It's not uncommon to find a 2 foot sarracenia for 10 dollars!

    Parking is relatively easy. Get enough parking to last you untill 4:30. Meetings have been known to stretch to long periods of time [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] Last meeting was about 6:00 P.M.! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img]

    The gift shop at the Berkely Botanical gardens has some Neps. Dont spend you money there untill the meeting is over... I once spent 50 dollars there, and missed out on A LOT of giant Neps for good prices...

    There will be many PFT members at this next meeting. CaptainDrosera, Droseradude, Capslock, Slizarus, Spectabilis73 (me [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] ), I hope Bugweed, and I'm hoping Est and Cephalotus88 will come, too.

    Do they ever have them in Michigan? That would really be nice to go to one. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/rock.gif[/img]

    All right. Sounds like a good party.
    You all seem to know each other (besides here at PFT). Will there be nametags (with PFT aliases on them [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img] so I can recognize you? My nametag would read 'Warren' - the same as it is here at PFT

    A 2ft sars for $10 would be great. I'm guessing the better deals would be had at the sale between 12 and 1pm? I'm interested also in the auction, but I wouldn't want to get carried away!

    Is it easy to run back to the parking lot, in case, to add more money? Well, I can only stay until about 5pm anyways.

    yes, its pretty easy... but getting there the first time can be a pain! the first time, we got lost, but once you know where it is its easy to get there... also, i know a shortcut that saves about 5 minutes, and in some cases, half an hour!

    What?! A shortcut? I've been to the UC Botanical Gardens before, but that was a long time ago...maybe when I was a student at Cal, which was really a long time ago. But I didn't have a car then...anyways, I'd like to hear more about this shortcut! I will be pressed for time to get there because I have to take my son to his baseball practice that morning, and it doesn't end until 11. So I expect, I'll be a little late to the meeting. I hope all the good plants aren't sold already!
