Ok folks I got the ok from Bob to go ahead with this invite. It would be great if we could reach out to all our friends from other sites we have spent time at and invite them to stop by here. the problem is even though we have developed friendships with our gardening friends we failed to acquire email addys from all the folks. At one site I was a member of (and a lot of folks here were also from that site), there was a Christmas card and spring post card exchange. I would love to send out post cards to the folks on the list I still have and let them know we are gathering here. The problem is this can cost a couple bucks and being out of work right now means money is short. So if any one who was on the exchanges would like to jump in and defuse the postage expense it can be fun. We are limiting this to members who were on the exchange list so as not to have the folks receiving the post card invites feel that we are abusing their right to privacy by supplying their home address to other people. The exchanges contained about 30 to 35 people so if 5 or 6 people jump in it will mean each of us sending out only 4 or 5 post cards. Bob suggested we organize this via email, so if you want to participate please PM me and I will give you my email address and we can get this invite rolling.
