    This year's show should really be fabulous. It will be a great way for people to see a magnificent variety of CPs - things you may only have seen in books or web pics. Last year the "Outstanding Plant" was a just frightening huge Nepenthes bicalcarata. We all agreed. It was worth trip, many said, just to see that one plant.

    The annual show is a very nice way to pick up new plants for your collection since there will be CP vendors and NECPS member donated items - you might be surprized at what will be available, and will only know if you go........ Last year there was QUITE the battle going on during the silent auction of items very generously donated by Tony Paroubek!!!!

    John Phillip, NECPS President, is setting up a deal at a local hotel for a reduced room rate and breakfast.

    A new event for this year is a table where non-NECPS members can display their CPs, we'll vote and prizes will be awarded. We are going to have a few other new displays this year. One will be the results of the Grow Contest (members each got genetically identical tissue culture sarracenia last spring). Also, a "Member's Favorites" table where each NECPS grower can place their favorite plant and a description of why it's their favorite.

    NECPS SHOW 2004

    We are also hoping to have items with the new NECPS Logo:





    I hope many of you can make it- we'd love to meet you. It's gonna be GREAT!

    Thanks Stephen -

    Good luck with your guy's show!! I wish I could go, it's just a bit far....

    We are very lucky in having extremely dedicated, enthusiastic, and creative people in our membership and support in our efforts by the people at Roger Williams Park. Although Roger Williams Park is not as big, it would be like you guys meeting regularly at greenhouses in Golden Gate Park, or Griffith Park in LA. There is a Zoo, boat rides, a carousel, rose garden, etc. Sometimes we get some of the general public - people who'll peek in at a meeting and the kids just love it.

    The suggestion of having a non-member's CP display came last month from a new member.

    At last year's NECPS show we created displays where the plants were displayed randomly, pitcher plant next to VFT, next to Neps, etc. It looked great but some folks thought it looked overwhelming. This year we are going to display things by group - pitcher plants all in one area, etc. It should make things a bit easier to judge too.

    Last year, the night before our first show, most of our members were like kids the night before Christmas - no one got much sleep from all the anticipation. One of the best things I remember from last year's show was seeing all the wide eyed smiling kids - young and old alike - and most visitors leaving happily and excited clutching new CPs.
