        What? You don't think the PNWCPC is broad enough and organized
enough ;-)? I think one of the reasons that the CPUK is successful is
because there's as many cp'ers there as in Canada, but in a very small
geographical area, making getting together for meetings easier. Also,
dispersion of plants gets harder the further away people are. For example,
if as a club we were to order a bunch of plants from a nursery, and you
volunteered to send them out from Victoria, there are cp'ers up in
Whitehorse, Ontario, Quebec, and the maritimes for which priority shipping
could be extremely expensive.

        Anyways, from my private posts to you Tim, you know I'd be the
first to jump into a project like this if there is enough interest. I just
think that we may be spread out too far and too thin to make it successful.
Perhaps a newsletter and/or seedbank might be the easiest route. Again, if
you think there's enough interest, contact me personally and I'll give some
hints and tips I've learned from organizing the PNWCPC meeting.

Happy growing,
