WANTED: Albany plant exchange

Flowerchild(z5NY Col.Cnty.)March 22, 2005

Are there any other suggestions for a place to have our plant exchange? I think a group of us should try to get one set up since Shimla is unable to organize it this year. We all were so looking forward to it. I am not in a central location myself being south of Albany but I would be glad to help if others have suggestions. We really should try to keep it going. Personally I think having a potluck along with the swap is a bit much. I thought it worked out nicely last year when everyone brought their own lunch and ate when they felt like it. That left us all lots of time to look at the plants and visit with our GW buddies. What do you guys think? Should we try for another one?

Hi Flowerchild,
I believe Fairydancer is taking over for Shimla as per this post

Having said that ,the Rensselaer Elks Club in East Greenbush would be a great place for our trade . They have a pavillion , rest rooms and a parking lot right at the pavillion.They do require you to clean up after your use. They may allow us to use it gratis given its a community event .I believe if you call there they will refer you to a woman who can give you all the particulars. Kareen

Hello! I'm coming in on this late. Did you already have your plant exchange??? I am familiar with the Elks Club you mention. There are many Scouting events held there.

My life is wild, like everyone's, but I thought it would not hurt to inquire.

I believe the Albany plant exchange location was finally settled to take place in Rotterdam on June 11th. Look at all the postings for Rotterdam for instructions.
Hope you can come.
