Western Mass plant swap


Attempt #2

EVENT: a simple meetup/swap, and we can also stop in dreamer_yoyo's shop and give her some business

DATE: Sunday, August 25

TIME: 5:00-6:00 PM
I figure an hour is plenty of time for everyone to be able to be there at once, it can always go longer, not like anyone is going to be kicked out.

LOCATION: Northampton, the parking lot across from Aqua View, we'll say under the trees on the east side of the lot (closest to the shop, right across from the bus stop entrance)

WEATHER: a beautiful, sunny day with no rain and just a few clouds

Feel free to post a have/want list if you haven't already.

My only issue with moving it back is that then it comes close to the tfsri auction. I want to contribute to that since its my local club. so what I'll have available to trade is going to be diminished. Unless people want frogbit.

It's not much of an issue, and I might be the only one with it.

I should do that anyway, there are too many old leaves on that thing from before I got that tank..

Well, you haven't posted a have list...

I'm open to all kinds of trades. Those are just my "I really want these" list items.

We can also schedule a meet later as well, don't see why it couldn't be a regular thing. Our next one could even just be at the September PVAS meeting...
Also, I have a ton of ramshorns available for trade as well, and would be interested in other types of snails...

That's because we know there's noting going on here. It's just the two of us.
