Just a reminder, our fall meeting is scheduled for Oct 30, 2012 at the Trinkle Center in Plant City. If you are a vendor and would like to have a booth for the trade show please sign up now. We are going to limit space to only 60 vendors this year and we are quickly filling up. We cannot add additional space after the first 60 spaces are filled. A booth will consist of an 8 X 8 space, 6 foot table and two chairs. One lunch comes with the booth. We only have electricity available at 12 booths and only a couple remain available. If you have equipment we have plenty of space outside. The cost is $350 per booth and additional lunches can be purchased for $15. You can register and pay online through Paypal or use a credit card. To pay online simply go to our website and click on "About Us". Click on "Membership" and a drop down will appear. There you will find "Vendor Booth Registration". Add it to your cart and continue to payment. Click here for shortcut. Paypal is the company that handles credit card transactions so if you want to use a credit card you will still click on the "Check out with Paypal". This step is the one that seems to be throwing everyone. You can then enter your credit card info. Please call Sheri Brothers if you want a booth so she can put you on the list. She can also answer all of your questions. Her number is 352-455-2714. If you are mailing in your payment make sure you send it to our Bartow address. Mail sent to our old address is no longer forwarded to us.
Individual registration will begin September 1st.
The meeting will consist of basic grower sessions and advanced topics.
