    Well, I went to the appointed meeting place (the corner of Zelza and Nordhoff), waited 20 minutes, and nobody was there. I drove a short way toward Reseda Bl. and saw a group gathered on Nordhoff in front of the Orange grove. I parked on a side street (Lindley) and Joined the group picking Oranges. The organizers knew nothing about any meetup group. I picked for about an hour and a half.

      I talked to some nice people and it was good to help the organization. I bought a pair of gloves from them, so I made a monetary contribution also. I'll upload a few pics after I learn to upload from my cell phone.

      Bill, I'm pretty sure we can park on the lot, if not the Streets are fine since it's Sunday.
