Excellent pictures of the rebuild in action. It was nice to work on a big project like this with everyone's help; I did not expect us to make as much progress as we did yesterday. I am more sore today than I thought I would be. Johnny and Tooms are back there this morning finishing up.
I hope this rebuild helps to restore some goodwill between the NECPS and RWBG.
John and I got the bog about 90% done today. There's a little tweeking still to do in December but just minor stuff. We decided to remove a lot of the duplicate Sarracenia that were in there. John is going to pot them up for the silent auctions. We figure that we can use the money they raise to buy some new plants that we've never had. Some nice S.flava, S.minor and S.alata would look great in there !
I was only concerned that if the bog was started on first we might never get to the meeting part like yesterday.
Now I know there was a lot to be done with the bog. And I know that it wasn't finished yesterday as there was too much to do in one day, but there were things that I thought were going to be discussed at the meeting that never were because everyone got involved with the bog first. The Kickstarter campaign and a possible NECPS contribution to it was one and the CP photography contest was the other. Both will end before the next meeting occurs making them both moot points of discussion at the December meeting.
The Holiday Meeting and Yankee Swap is more of a social gathering that many look forward to at that time of the year and I would hate to see anyone that was looking forward to it disappointed.
