Subject: [gardening-204] Why Planting Fields Arboretum Event was cancelled on Sat Jun 26

HI Everyone. The reason I cancelled the event was because we only had 3 people coming. Last year we had 20 people. I had 16 people coming originally in the last 2 days I had 8 members cancell on me. Too many people cancelling in such a short time. Look I know we all need to change plans sometimes. We have other things come up but this is something is not right with this picture at all.

I love this group I started and we have had many great meetup events with this group. I have a lot of great friends in this group. I really enjoy sharing my passion with everyone. I am happy to see that everyone who came to my events and enjoyed themself.

As you all know by now I removed Lee Zett from my group 2 weeks ago. Some of you may be angry at that. I respect that. Lee has 3 great meetup groups and is a great host. The reason he was removed was because he has been scheduling his events the same time I schedule mine a lot of times and he puts them up after I put mine up a lot. Lets face it he has a great following. Lee has every right to schedule his events when he wants to. But when it conflicts with mine and I lose people going to my events then I do not want him in my group. Lee is out of my group that simple.

I do the best I can to plan great events and make sure everyone has a good time and feels welcome. I am always open to ideas. That is all I can do give it my 100 percent best. I apologie to everyone for what happened today and promise you this will never happen again.

There will be 4 events in this group during July and August. Sunday July 11 is Old Westbury Gardens.
There will be another event to Planting Fields Later in the month. In August We will be going to Bayard Cutting Arboretum and Clark Botanic GArdens.

This group is a great group and we have a foundation of great people in it. This group will continue to be a great group.
