We used to have an Iowa roundup from you-know-where. Almost all of us are here at cubits and want to organize here. Moby suggested a name for the Iowa Gathering as "GIG", Gathering of Iowa Gardeners. Any thoughts?

When/where is it this year? I've missed the last couple.... Not sure if I can make it, but I certainly can't if I don't get it on my calendar early.

I would like to see a name that could be used for all the gatherings (like we used "Round-up"), There were area ones and state named ones.

(Maridell - can't see an I.G.G either) Thumbs down Sticking tongue out

I agree it would be nice to have name that could be used by all groups (such as the __fill in the spot__ roundup). Don't know what it would be.

"Meet 4 Sweets" would certainly apply Whistling

I'd thought of W.I.G. also and thought is would be kinda funny. Pennsylvania would be P.I.G., Delaware would be
D.I.G., and so on. Wouldn't work so well for Nebraska, though...

I thought there would be at least one it wouldn't work for. Keep brainstorming!
