Look forward to seeing you there then Norbert. I enjoyed you wife's talk at the Cactus Explorers last year and sorry you were unable to make it. Unfortunately no Cactus Explorers this year as they are refurbishing the university facilities during the university holidays when we usually rent it. However we do have the Society Convention this year instead.

Chris, good mood, some questions, a terrible pronunciation, my wife (with a better pronunciation) and perhaps some Pterocacti.
See you (all) on Sunday

It was great to see so many like-minded enthusiasts interested in small opuntias yesterday. Thank you all for coming!

Particular thanks to our three speakers, Dave Appleton, Paul Hoxey and Mike Partridge who gave us excellent and complementary talks.

Also thank you to the sellers and purchasers of plants - I'm sure everyone went away happy.

We look forward to next year's Annual Event (probably on Sunday 12th May 2019) already.
N.B. VENUE AND DATE TBC IN DUE COURSE.

It was a good day and lots of nice plants and I think Norbert will have to bring more next year as they didn't last long

We just came back from the fantastic TSG Meeting in Coddington and were welcomed by this:
