Annual General Meeting in Palma de Mallorca
« on: August 22, 2011, 11:04:30 AM »
Is anybody going to the meeting? I had hoped to go, but I realized  only today that I actually can, as a major committment I had on those days had been cancelled. Unfortunately it is too late to book - at least on line,  I tried to write an email, we will see.

I believe the Cyprus contingent will number at least 4, possibly 5.

No reply for now  :( . I really hope it is still possible to join. I imagine the problem would be be in the trips/ garden visits, where numbers could be restricted, not during the meeting itself.

I would love to come! Is the Spanish branch in charge of the organization?

Alessandra, It would probably be worth emailing Sally Beale who is head of the Balearics branch - they are organising the meeting.
Helena and I will be there, and I know that Maria from this forum will be too.

I dropped a line to Sally, too - but of course I don't pack that impressive Presidential Punch!

 :) All's well etc etc...
I did it! I am registered, and booked the hotel as well.

Many thanks to everybody for your help, I really look forward to this meeting, it is the first time I manage to attend. I hope to see many members there and have time to talk to all of them!

I will be there too and I am happy to meet you. I know you since a long time, but only on the web, perhaps more than 10 years ago, when I began to chat on the medit-plants forum.
I would love to visit La Mortella.

Happy to see you soon, Alessandra,

I have just heard from Sally Beale that there are still a few places for the Mediterranean Garden Society meeting in Mallorca in October - so anyone else who'd like to come, hasten to book!
