    The maintenance committee seems to be what the inventory and placement committees will evolve into. Much of their work will be up front, much of its work will be in the future.

    Someone should try and contact Steve at the Meijer Gardens. They get CPs that are confiscated by the US government and have some really nice Purples right now that are all genetically unique from Canada... not to mention they could probubly hold part of the collection too since they have so much room. I don't start volunteering till April, but I can bring it up then if you need someone too.
    There is no item greater in value than life, for without life value would cease to exist.

    This is great and will work well, but where do we send information we are gathering now. Should we hold onto it? Should we stop gathering until the committees are formed?

    Thanks
