    A big change for the month of February! Our friends at the Moon and Sixpence, who have hosted us for the last 7 years (!) have let us know that they are planning to add live music to their Saturday schedule and that they can no longer spare the space for us. This was told kindly and with no hard feelings but it left us with a need to find a new venue for our get-togethers. Our own Raycer491 has taken on the job of spearheading our more-recent events and he has found us a new meeting spot just a few blocks from the M and S. It is the Columbia River Brewing Co. and they do welcome people under 21, despite asking for age verification of over 21 to enter their website http://www.columbiariverbrewpub.com/home/. Our February meeting is to be here and, tentatively, all those through May. Another change is that the day is changing from Saturday to Sunday. The next meeting is scheduled for Sunday, February 10 at 3:00 PM at the Columbia River Brewing Co. at 1728 NE 40th Ave Portland, Oregon. They may be contacted by phone at: 503 943-6157. We do encourage attendees to patronize our hosts so it is worth their while to have us there. I will post a later reminder the week before we next meet. 'Hope to see you there!

    Thanks for the update and for all the thought and coordination. New year, new location, new date and time. Not sure if I can still make it, but will try. Such a fun group.

    It would appear that the information in the post above, #737, is final. So this is the final reminder of our February meeting which will be on Sunday, Feb. 10 at 3:00 PM. See the post above for information as to where because our location has changed. 'Hope you see you there!

    An update from Raycer491, not yet addressing the current winter weather:

    "A few things about the upcoming meet this Sunday:
    1.1
    We will still be meeting at the Columbia River Brewing Company at 3pm this Sunday as planned.
    1.2
    Iíve been in communication with the Columbia River Brewing Company for the past month. They have a large space available for us, however I *just* found out today that thereís a live Bluegrass band there from 2-5 pm this Sunday. I had spoken to staff a week ago and they had not mentioned this.
    1.3
    I suggest we reopen the discussion about new venue options. I recommend a new neighborhood, possibly around SE MLK and Grand, if to expand our range while remaining within a mile of the Moon and Sixpence. We can begin this discussion in the comments below.
    1.4
    We will still return to the patio of the Moon and Sixpence after the weather warms up, probably in May, but earlier is still possible.
    2.1
    We should be minimal this meet. I advise bringing at most 2 or so plants - no more than you can carry in and out. Please, for this particular get together, we should refrain from oversized Nepenthes or anything that will crowd out space. If the venue is unbearably loud we may find ourselves migrating to a new spot.
    Iím sorry about these incessant announcements, moving to a new venue hasnít been clean and simple. Bear with me!"

    Regarding the current snowy conditions - I am still determining if I will be able to attend or not being as I have to drive between 15 and 20 miles to get to the venue and I expect others are in the same boat. It might be mostly over by then, or not. 'Guess we watch to see!

    I will be sitting this one out also. Besides the long commute in possible wintry conditions, I am not too keen on trying to hold plant conversations over loud music,
