    I wonder if you guys will do a CD or post a docurama in this site about the Annual Mushroom Show. Something like TED Talks Do. Please do that. It entice people to visit next year, and it work to improve the activity.

    Hi Greenboy,
    A good idea, but certainly requiring stoked member volunteer(s) to take this on.
    Current crowd of Show & 30th Anniversary event volunteers are pretty busy with the events they are co-ordinating, so likely a next year idea.
    I think it would be fun! But my plate runneth over, so I'll simply suggest it to see if there is interest.
    cheers

    Doesn't anybody have a camera? If I was in Vancouver there would be a thousand superb pictures up in one or two days in a form easy to view.

    Unfortunately, my area is not mushroom country, and I do miss hunting and photographing them.
