The GREAT 2000 IAS Show and Sale
From: "Julius Boos" ju-bo at email.msn.com> on 2000.10.02 at 12:56:00(5499)|
Dear Jeff and ALL my many friends and members 'out there',
I have been meaning to write a note about the GREAT show, but have been up
to my knees in Alligators since last weekend!
It was a great time, wasn`t it?? So many wonderful plants, so many friends
that we had not met or seen for so many months/years, the presence of
greatness in Dr. Croat, Dr. Mayo, Josef Bogner, Pete Boyce, and many others
too numerous to mention! Lots of ideas and information exchanged, lots of
plants bought, sold and generously given, the viewing of Craig Allen`s
magnificent collection of Aroids, I could go on forever!
Many thanks to those who bid at the plant auction, and some even obtained
what their hearts desired!
Funds were raised for the continued perpetuation of our society, and this is
a GOOD thing!
Anyhow, nice meeting all you old friends again, and wonderful getting to
know the new ones too!
Lets keep growing these plants we so love well, and hope to see you all
again next year!
>Well what did I think of the show? It was Great!!!!!!! Why dident I go|
I also had a great time!
Miami was great! The weather was great! And the people were great!
As for the show, well,I have never seen that many rare plants in one place
at one time! great plants! and at great prices!
Next time Im going to bring more suit cases to bring home plants, I wish
now I had gotten some other plants I had seen,
Everyone is the IAS were very helpful, and made you feel at home,and went
out of there way to help you, and introduce you,
The auction was fun! wish I had bid on more plants now, but I got one at the
auction, a philodendrun callosum, wont find that up here! anyplace,
There were plants that I said I would bid on, and before you know it, its
done, next time ill be ready :)
Anyone thinking about going? I would say go! My wife wants to go next time!
( I brought her home a shirt, what more could I bring? no more room, plants
come first!) Said it sounded like I had to much fun and she wants to meet
Julius and dewey fisk (look out guys)
I would stay longer next time, so much to see, and so little time,
Well I got home just in time to see the leaves fall here, The garden is done
for the year, and Its time to turn on the heat, miami really sounds nice
Cant wait to meet up again next year! let me know when the dates are set!
Thanks to all of you for a great time!!!!
