March Quiz and First Table Show of 2016!

Our second meeting of the year is this saturday coming as usual it’s the customary lighthearted quiz which will hopefully keep us busy, the digital projector will also be in attendance so it’s a good chance to bring any photos of cacti or your cacti & succulent related travels along on a USB stick or disk which we can put up to talk about and show everyone.

As usual we’re always happy to meet new visitors, it also happens to be our first table show of the year featuring Cereus group cacti and Aloe group for succulents as well as the usual Wight Cup section for any flowering cactus or succulent so we look forward to having the table positively briming.
