A quick hello to anyone who makes it today, hope everyone is well. Apologies for my prolonged absence.

Hi all, yay finally im here :) ( got around to getting my new account setup, finally!)

long story short - I did attend one of the meets a couple of months back with my girlfriend and we met quill (hi quill) and abit later a couple of other chaps turned up i recognised from lifes journey (sorry i dont know your online names to say gday). anyway i always catch myself spewing when i miss the meets due to other distractions but now im focused and will hopefully be at the next one. fingers crossed.

After talking with t st tantra about possibly having one or two major botanic meetings (eg. a spring plant meet and swap) a year, I'm interested to hear what everyone else thinks?

Hoping to have a major meet up where everyone who can make it does, in an attempt to catch up with everyone else, even if they haven't been making it to the monthly events due to other commitments.

Any suggestions are more than welcome and I'll started a basic poll to see what people think.

Didn't manage to spot anyone today - hope everyone is well. Pencil in September 9th for the next meet (PM me for details on meeting spots if you are unsure)... will aim to catch up with (or muster up) a few more people for some Spring socialising.

Going to put a reminder in for the next meet, hanging to meet some SASABers. Im guessing the meet will be in the same spot as usual?

Howdy folks. I'd love to come to a meet I find myself missing them. Not often you get to chat to fellow idiosyncratic plant-heads. Problem is I'm on a 10-4 shift out in the country and i'm only back in town one weekend a fortnight, and that keeps on mis-aligning with the meet. I think alchemica's idea of a spring get-together is excellent for a pre-warmer-weather trade off and discussion maybe we can come up with date. Unfortunately, true to form Sept 9 is no good for me. The 16th is, however, so maybe we can come up with a exception to the second-sunday-of-every-month rule for a month. Only problem is that misses out those who do not use this forum regularly. Cheers, Micro

Sounds like a good idea - think most others are reachable by phone if we need to let them know of any changes to normal plans? Besides, Father's day seems to be coinciding with September 9th... might be easier to conform to 'societal demands' for prescribed familial activities if we move it to the 16th? Open to input, keen to know what others think.

That works for me, me and my partner are going to Beach Boys on the 9th and will be doing family stuff during the day :)

Are the Beach Boys still together? Wonders never cease. Surf's up bro.

Anyway sounds good fellas, that makes three of us, which is as they say the beginning of a raucous crowd.

Any more of you adelaidean's out there keen to meet up on the 16th? Probably a good chance to swap some plants too.

Also neo I think I know who you are you shared a disastrous sad tale about the demise of chickens, weekend of womad. But it was not a couple of chaps but a chap and chapette but still the same day I believe. We had met elsewhere before yes in life's journey.

This is the first time they all (alive ones) have toured together in aaaaagggeess, saw Mike Love and Bruce Johnston play Beach Boys 2 years ago at the opera house, then later that year saw Brian Wilson play, going to be wicked seeing them together along with the other members :)

I got my dates mixed up its on the 2nd, but the 16th is still good for meet :) oh and at0m I'll bring that 6 month overdue freebie I've been meaning to send out :unsure: Sorry it's taken so long lol

I'm inviting a bunch of 'randoms' this 16th.

So should see some new faces :)

The more the merrier. Although, knowing someone's name doesn't make them any less random! And collecting cactus is about as random as it comes.

So we are still on then? I am still keen and will be available. Hopefully the weather will be awesome and we can make a day of it.

Perhaps we should make a time and place in the gardens that is not so random as usual?

I should be able to make it. No plans that I'm aware of (these things are sprung on me though...)

No can do for me. Plans have been made on my behalf again...

You can expect my bearded, bespectacled face. Can't promise much in the way of randomness, but I can banter. See you trippers there.
