    Have you folks considered starting the meeting earlier in the afternoon? A 3PM start time makes attending less appealing to out-of-towners. (I won't drive I-5 after dark unless absolutely necessary)

    We could do that, Paul. It would only require a shuffling of the venues as suggested previously, since the Moon opens at 3. During the Summer, 3 pm isn't bad, but it can be very tiresome in the winter.

    Regardless, a change of scenery wouldn't be bad.

    Agreed. I love the M & S but some variety would be fine. Earlier works, too. I would enjoy seeing the nursery.

    Having said that let's continue with our normal time and place for this meeting and see what we can come up with for the next one. I love field trips but it would be great if we can find and designate someplace nearby where we could meet before and afterwards. Maybe a coffee house or a very casual restaurant? Someplace that wouldn't mind us putting potted plants on the table. Thoughts?

    It has been proposed that we hold the April meeting on Maui. Does anyone second the motion?

    How about http://www.mcmenamins.com/mobile/sea...uery=edgefield

    Saturday doesn't show rain. There's plenty of place's to walk around. Mat,myself and others have had a meetup there and we could start alot earlier than 3 as well. Paul if he chooses could attend and make it home before dark if we started a bit earlier.

    Thoughts?

    I'm all in for meeting in Hawaii!

    I'd be down, but I think the only problem would be getting in touch with everyone at a moment's notice. If we've got everyone's phone numbers, it could work.

    I would hate to hear that a few people were sitting alone expecting us to be at the usual place. Should we save it for April?
