2012 N Central TX RU in Burleson**April 28th** ATTENDANCE**

Fort Worth, TX(Zone 8a)

Hello Everyone, Sybil has kindly offered to host our spring RU at her home!!!

Date--- April 28th, 2012 ****NOTE: Saturday this time!*****
Place-- Sybram's house in BURLESON, TX. (South of Fort Worth and East of I-35W)
Since it is a private residence we will not be posting her exact address here, we will dmail it to those planning to attend.
Time--- Noon or later
Eat at 1:30 - 2pm (Electricity is available, but not for cooking only warming)

A plant trade thread and a food thread will be started at a later date. As they are posted I will put a link here.
Here is the trade thread link(s)..... #1 http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/t/1240847/
and #2 http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/t/1248592/

There will be no door charge, and our hostess will furnish coffee, tea, cups, plates, napkins and plastic ware.
Bring your folding tables, chairs and wagons if you have them. Sybil does have a lot of tables for eating but we need more for plants and chairs for extra seating.

Plenty of space for parking is available, a large pavillion with electricity next to her house where we will be able to access a bathroom and running water! You will pull up in the drive, unload, then cars will be moved to another area. Thank you Frank for being our parking attendant last year!

Also bring door prizes (one per guest) for a drawing later. Something small low cost, and suitable for man or women please.

Very good Sheila, let us get it rolling Everyone!

Colleyville, TX(Zone 8a)

Hurray! Finally a spring RU that doesn't conflict with my garden club's big fundraiser. Count me in! Thanks to Sybil for hosting and Josephine and Sheila for organizing.

Burleson, TX(Zone 8a)

I'll be there!! WOOHOO!!! Thanks Syb :)

Arlington, TX

I plan on being there, wherever there is?

Burleson, TX(Zone 8a)

Hahahaha. I'm not really as mean as I look in that pic.

North Richland Hills, TX

Yippee, count me in!

Fort Worth, TX(Zone 8a)

Mark & I should be there. Should the directions be west of I-35?

Goldthwaite, TX(Zone 8a)

I'd really like to come, but that week-end is when my Pennsylvania son and his family are planning to be here. My granddaughter is fifteen months old, and I haven't seen her since September! I'll have to come back later and say for sure if I will be able to attend when their plans are firm.

Josephine, Arlington, TX(Zone 8a)

Alright!! things are shaping up.
I hope you will be able to make it Pat.

Burleson, TX(Zone 8a)

No, Stephanie, it's east of I-35W. Exit Renfro. But I didn't understand the I-30 reference either. I-30 runs east/west doesn't it, so we're south of it, aren't we? Sheila?

Burleson, TX(Zone 8a)

I read it the same way did Syb. SO that would be right.

Fort Worth, TX(Zone 8a)

Oops I will change the reference in a minute! I meant I -35 but those coming will get acturate directions by dmail!

Sorry Sybil it was the only one I had of you from last year. I didn't take but about 8 pictures...Herman will be there this year and correct that!
I think that happened before Patricia....hope you can work a quick swap in like you did before!

Grapevine, TX(Zone 8a)

I'm hoping to make it.

Josephine, Arlington, TX(Zone 8a)

Great, I don't think you made over to Sybil's last year Dennis.

Houston Heights, TX(Zone 9a)

I'm planning to come too. It's too early to tell if my neighbor can come as she did last year. I can firm that up later. Did not get to go to Syb's last year but will this year. Marty

Fort Worth, TX(Zone 8a)

Great group so far....just warming up!

Caddo Mills, TX(Zone 8a)
