swap schedule?

new-gardener123(6/7)May 15, 2009

How does the swap flow? Tomorrow will be my first. When is the speaker? When is the swapping? How does that work? What time does the whole thing usually end?

Usually we arrive around 8 AM to give everyone time to look at what everyone's brought. Then I think they usually start the actual swapping at 9 AM (although a lot of us fudge a bit lol). Then we go to noon or so, have lunch, and then the talk with the speaker is after that. Not sure if we'll follow this exact schedule this year, but Jeff will sort me out if I'm wrong. :-)

Thanks April; you were spot-on!

I just got home and I still have at least TWO trips to make to Chapel Hill tonight.

Lets all be prepared to eat as soon as everyone has swapped so that we can start the speaker before it rains. I think we will be on borrowed time as it is.

One hand ,two fingers crossed--NO RAIN--if you do that on both hands--FLOOD-"BAD LUCK", heard that since a child, one hand only for what you may be wishing for. Any one know the song and CAN SING ---"Rain Drops Keep Falling On My Head"?
