    Hey guys,

    We didn't have time to get the pull up poster printed to show where we are on the day. We are thinking of putting up an APSA t-shirt "Flag" to show where we are.

    We will take this down as people arrive in their APSA T-shirts :p

    We hoping for the spot next to the lake on the left of the bar/restaurant.

    here is a map:

    We will include some name tags for everyone :)

    Holy moley! The place is far from the parking lot! I have too many tanks to carry. I'll leave stuff in the car rather. LOL!

    We will have a look when we get there on the distance from the parking and then also think we can do a boot swop on the larger items??

    Sorry guys, I'm not going to make it there tomorrow... Unfortunately life has called my name, and I need to answer that call. But fear not. I will maybe host a jumble sale from my yard one of these days.

    Just want to say thank you to APSA for arranging to awesome JHB plant swap day.

    As always it is nice to meet up with fellow aquatic plant hobbyists.

    Next time will be bigger and better.

    In 3 or 4 months time I'm sure we should be ready for the next one.

    :thumb:

    Well done @wearsbunnyslippers & @shihr ! :cool:
