For those waiting patiently for an update, we'll be sending out emails in the coming weeks with the final details.  If you have any questions in the mean time or are interested in attending, you can PM me and I'll get you RSVPed.

A tentative update until all of the lunch details and the first garden visit address is confirmed.image.png.96ca0721aba54a99b7270a8677f90c66.png

Just a quick reminder that the meeting is this Saturday. 

@Johnny Palmseed, since the Palm Beach Society Sale is cancelled, might as well join us for our meeting.  You're cordially invited. :)

The weekend after our meeting, if anyone is looking for spring palm sales, might as well attend this one in Cape Coral, FL:

Sounds like a unique and interesting event, I hope photos are taken as it should be a one-of-a-kind PRA.

I can't think of there being a Camp Out-type palm meeting before. A cool mix of hobbies, camping and palms. It is supposed to rain here on Saturday, so maybe it will move through earlier up north and not be an issue. I figure those camping would be prepared anyway. That Microcycas calocoma would make the meeting worth attending all on its own. I haven't seen one in an auction before. Is it known if it's going to have a reserve or not?

For those attending have fun!

The weather forecast is predicting 1.5 inches of rain this Saturday.  After much conversation, the meeting will be postponed until Sunday, March 7th, 2021.  The itinerary has been updated to reflect this.  Please see below:

If you're on the mailing list, you should receive an email tonight with similar information.  Thank you for your understanding!

Ugh, I hope I didn't jinx it. Could not move the Camp Out to Saturday night? Might be wet but the rain could be gone by then.

I don't think you jinxed it.  Sometimes nature makes decisions for us. ;) 

I'm not sure how many folks took the camp out offer actually.  We'll see how it turns out.

Some footage from the auction for those that couldn't make it: ...

Nice video on a great auction. A steal on that M. calocoma, incredible price. It looks like you had a good turnout.

      Our summer meeting is tentatively scheduled for Saturday, June 12th, 2021.  Current plans are a visit to Leu Gardens in the morning and a lunch and nursery visit in the afternoon.  More details will be made available as they are finalized.

      The meeting originally scheduled for Saturday, March 6th, 2021 will be postponed until Sunday, March 7th, 2021 due to over an inch of rain falling all day and 25MPH chilly winds from the North on the original meeting day.  The forecast for Sunday is sunny and dry, so the decision was made to postpone this afternoon.
      Details for this event will be posted here: https://www.palmtalk.org/forum/index.php?/topic/66772-central-florida-palm-cycad-society-spring-meeting-sat-03062021/
