Marc has very kindly agreed to let me send this to the list that he used
recently. I hope that will not be seen as new spam ! Derek Burch
"Good morning, Marc,
I am starting to be really concerned that NO papers are coming in for the
next Aroideana, and was very tempted to steal your email list by doing a
"reply to all" to get the word out to the 'serious' aroiders to whom you had
sent the notice of the conference . I decided that that would be a bad
breach of etiquette, but perhaps you would consider forwarding this to your
list. It is true that the deadline for getting the text part to me is not
until January 15 (the usual date), but I have normally had some expressions
of interest by now.
I am also not getting much response to my announcement that the cultivar
registration programme is underway - I don't expect congratulations, but
would love volunteers to help with checking the existing lists, adding new
cultivars and even doing registration forms for those cultivars whose
descriptions have appeared in print. I won't be able to do this without help
of that sort. Quite a dilemma.
I hope that all is well with you, and that the wintry weather that seems to
be settling in further north is not affecting your area too badly.
