Greetings all, I know it's be ages since I posted. I hope you all are well.
The reason I am posting is I was thinking about having a SEFG but I wanted to see if there was any interest and availability for Aug 12th. 
If you are interested and available please feel free to note it to this post or drop me a PM.
This would be in Fort Mill, SC

Cool looks like we have a fig gig, I will host this one at my house. I do have a guest room and a pull out sofa for those that need it. There are also plenty of hotels in the area. For those with families who may not be so into figs there is a local pool and Carowinds amusement park is less than a miles from me.

I would love to come but I am attending the NAFEX meeting in Tifton GA on the 13th through the 16th. As of the 14th of this month I am retired so I should be able to make more of these activities. Thank you for hosting it. Maybe in a couple of years I'll host one.

Here are details, Aug 12th 10:30 to 2:30 My address is 154 Lake Pointe Dr, Fort Mill SC 29708 my cell 803-389-0230
My plan is to make some sort of BBQ(most likely brisket-I'm from TX) I 'll ask if people can bring a side or desert.
Bring a fig tree or cutting for the trading game. Feel free to bring cuttings and trees to sell and trade but make sure you keep them separate. I see what I can do about getting someone to come talk trees, otherwise we can just hang out talk figs and be social.

I haven't seen anyone make request yet, so if this is in poor taste let me know. If anyone has a Smith or Colonel Littman's Black Cross for sale or trade let me know.

Thanks

Hey Grant
I don't know if I have anything you want to trade.

In pots now I have Alma, Brunswick, What I think is Brown Turkey from an abandoned house down the road (when the figs on it get ripe I'm going to post pictures so you guys can tell me I'm right or wrong). Also in pots I have another unknown I took cutting from my wife's boss he brought down from his Italian mother in New York.

In the ground now I have RDB, Zingarella and Strawberry Verte.

I'm looking forward to it. I don't yet have many fig cuttings to trade; just a Celeste from Lowes. I'd bring some citrus cuttings but Charleston is under quarantine.

ScottA  Don't worry. Come and enjoy yourself.  There are plenty of us who will be glad to help you develop a good fig addiction as we were helped down that road ourselves.

Is this still happening?  The gf and I have that weekend off and we would LOVE to meet up with other figgers!  We're in NC, and y'all are only a few hours away :-)
