**********Sorry as of this week the 20th is no longer an option. I have started a Master Naturalist program and we have a field day on the 20th. So the date will be Oct 6th for the RU this fall. Details and a link will come later.*******

OK North Texas it's time!...Here we are headed into fall, although the weather doesn't seem like it.
Sybil (sybram) and her husband have once again agreed to allow us to invade their place for a RU this fall. (We really need to remember to pass the hat this time!) She has two dates in October open that we can use her pavillion. The dates are both Saturdays and the RU will start at noon. Please chime in for your choice, we don't want her to be in limbo waiting on us too long so I am only leaving this open to discussion for one week...sorry those of you aren't online often. Myself, Josephine, and Stephanietx will keep up with threads and organize it this year.


Oct 6th at noon in Burleson for the RU

Um, er, I will check into it...at this point I don't know if either is better or worse. I know my DGS's birthday (in Fort Worth) is the 10th, and we are probably going to their place for some type of festivity at some point, but I don't know when.

Either works for me, but the 6th seems like it would be better to give any plants actually planted more time to establish before the frost comes (if we get any freezing weather this year).

Oh me. So sorry, Sheila, that I didn't see this before I wrote you. Hahaha, guess I'm one of those who "don't get online often." And that's putting it mildly.. You guys are so welcome at our place, and don't even think about passing the hat.

October sounds so cool and inviting, doesn't it?

Indeed it does Sybil! I have been enjoying the 70s we had a few mornings too.

OK...bad news for the few of you that picked 10-20. I have just signed up for the Master Naturalist Program and there is a class being held on 10-20. So I hate to be mean but since I am going to be unable to make that date, I will need to say we have to go with October 6th this year. Sorry I didn't know this ahead of time.

Sorry Pat, it has been so long since we have seen you it seems like. Make sure you check out the RU they are getting together in the Houston area. I already have that info on the event sticky thread at the top of the forum.

Sorry Cindy, had to pull the 20th off the option list. We will have to do it on the 6th to get the free place at Sybil's. Check back a few posts for explaination.

A RU is a round up and it's a plant swap. There's food, fun, and free plants. You can pre-arrange trades or just show up for the fellowship. You won't leave empty-handed!

We have the thread up for attendance now. http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/t/1277951/

Please sign up even if it is a maybe, so you can "watch" and have all the information needed. This thread will likely get buried soon.
