    Default 2008 WOC Show in Miami

    ROAD TRIP!!!

    Several of us have talked about attending the 2008 WOC show in Miami in January of 2008... Well, how interested are YOU??

    I'm willing to put together a group event, including getting us a great deal on hotel accomodations, car rental, group trips to local area nurseries and just scenic type places. (I can't manage everyones air travel, sorry....)

    So - If you think you would be able to attend, and would like to enjoy the event with your RVO friends, let me know (post an answer, don't pm me). If there seems to be enough interest, I 'll work on setting up the details.

    The show, conference and sale is from January 22 - January 27, 2008.

    Can you imagine this group turned loose en masse on the unsuspecting public of Miami??? That alone will be worth the trip!!!

    Cheers,

    I am sure that Kim, and I could make it for the weekend. Although we wouldn't need hotel accomodation because we have quite a few friends in the area. Although both Kim and I would love to get to meet some of the people from the forum. Then of course goad people into buying BIG orchids.... hint hint McJulie

    Aaron, I'm just waiting for the opportunity to strap an orchid on my rooftop radar dish! Count me in...but being the poor, broke author, couch room is welcome! I can bring the sleeping bag. I'm house broken, don't snore, and can let cats in and out in my sleep...

    Just a thought!
