Arrow Western Mass plant swap 2.0

So this post is to gauge people's interest in having our second plant swap. Is it too early to start planning the next one? We were thinking quarterly, right? So judging by the upcoming auctions, the biggest break we'll have coming up is between BAS on Oct 27 and DAAS on Jan 19 (assuming that no one is actually going all the way to Burlington for the auction there). So that puts us at the end of November or beginning of December, right near the 3 month mark from the last swap...

I'm thinking December 1, and we should be able to have it earlier in the day now that tattooedfool doesn't work Sundays

It should be indoors because of the cold, and novitt has offered before to host it in his house, so hopefully he will reply here if that is still an option...

As this comes to fruition, I will edit this post to the event details format of the last one...

Maybe late November? We'll probably have to meet somewhere indoors then!

Really depends on the plant situation. I've got a bunch of projects going on and am hoping to have loads of plants soon. But I'll definetly make the next meet. I'm hoping for some good scores at the next auctions

Same here tattooed... maybe we can all (those of us going) chat about the next swap at the upcoming auctions and get a feel for what would work for people.

Opps, forgot to talk about it today, lol... but I mean I guess there isn't a whole lot to talk about if only like 3-4 of us were interested. I'm sure it wouldn't be worth the drive for you and 0live.

Right now I am starting a shrimp tank, but in another month or two I am looking at an excess of crypt wendtii and maybe lutea, wisteria, and maybe a nymphae sp. Lily.

well.. My browser killed my long and lovely response all about how much I love trading with you guys, even if it's for java moss.

I'll have a bunch of that rotala that tattooed bought at the cichlid auction.. (the pink rooted stuff) some blyza japonica, might have some hygrophila angustifolia and rotala macandra, and almost always I have alternanthera reineckii.

I've got some low grade cherries I'm looking to trade for other low grade cherries.. I need some genetic diversity in my colony.. (My colony has been known to throw blues and clears, so fair warning if you really don't want that much genetic diversity.)

So is this confirmation that people wanna do this December 1? I really enjoy it, too, 0live

Any ideas of places to meet if novitt doesn't speak up about having it at his place? We'd be more than happy to have it at our place, but don't think people would want to drive up to Worthington (east of Northampton, up in the hilltowns)... I can also start looking into bars and restaurants, see if there are any good spots that would allow us.

I was joking I'm planning on going and I've arranged to purchase some mischlings from dreameryoyo whenever the plant swap is set for.

We could still meet in pvd, but is suggest maybe a meet by uncle Ned's, so we can still check out a LFS.
