Ah man, I kind of wish I'd booked the night just so I could've joined in on the stalking :) . It was still awesome going around and looking at all the plants with you guys... like a TF picture thread in real life, with real-time talking instead of commentary! Hanging out with Jeremiah and hearing some of his CP wisdom was awesome too. All around an incredible experience!

Me and Stewart got on really well! Was up chatting with him, Adam Cross, Damon Collingsworth, Fernando Rividavia, Robert Gibson, Marcel from ICPS board, and Jeremiah, as well as a bunch of other great people (can't remember names... Sorry...) till way to late last night! It was incredible how nice everybody was! Just crazy!

Really, crazy, awesome!

I'm getting a job just so I can attend the next one, wherever the heck it is!

I really wish I could have stayed longer to chat. There is always the annual NECPS show if you can't afford the trip to the ICPS show.

It was great to meet everyone at the conference, and put real faces to the avatars! :)

Pfffft! It is looking like the next show is going to be in Australia.

I'll make it. Hell or high water!

I will also do my best to go to the next conference wherever it might be next time. It was definitely worth it and I hope that everyone in TF eventually attends the conference at any time in their lives. :)

The location rotates every two years between Americas (Including Canada), Asia/Pacific/Australia and Europe/Africa. Where exactly depends on who gives the best proposal that gets accepted by the ICPS. Last time in the Asia/Pacific/Australia rotation it was in Sydney, Australia and before that Tokyo, Japan.

Maybe Singapore (Cindy?) would be nice.

I think their are some sites in and around Singapore, I'll have to re-listen to a radio interview Cindy did. But an expedition set up with Chi'en Lee would be incredible.

A few pics of Matt Opel's (a.k.a. quogue's) awesome lowii x ventricosa!

Great looking at all the pics, cause I really didn't have a chance to take any!
Looks like my break time's over, time to get the plants settled and to get ready for the NC field trip!

Hey guys, thanks so much for coming!! And for posting all these pics!

It was great meeting you all in person, the only regret I have is that I didn't have more time to talk to everyone. I am EXHAUSTED but at the same time so energized about all the great new ideas and new friendships that came out of the conference. It was so much work, but so worth it!!

What a great conferance! It was great to get to catch up with some of you and meet others. I do wish I had a little more time to chat with everyone (especially you Butch).

I didn't have much time to take almost any photos, I've enjoyed what I have seen so far, but I'd love to see more!

Again it was great to meet all of you.

Same here.... one day was definitely not enough!

I believe we should thank you for all the great work you did and organizing the conference! It was great meeting some of the TF members and you! :)

You people at NECPS really did an amazing job! Everything was fantastically organized, and tons and tons and tons of fun! Can't say enough good stuff about how well it was setup!
