    Things are getting busy at the moment, but I'll try to stop in if I can (I really have no excuse with my proximity to the place).

    I've been researching a lot of local CP sites lately, so hopefully when the weather warms up a bit we can conduct some of our meetings in the field. Also, Bovee's vireya nursery (tropical highland rhododendrons) is open and would be an interesting place to gather - that is, if any of you are interested in plants that grow sympatrically with Nepenthes.

    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?
