Thanks for sharing your knowledge Warren. Hope I can make it!
By the way,  will you be bringing some of your favorite mangos so that we too can have a mango tasting feast like the Florida crew? ....lol

I will try to bring CA grown mango fruit, but we experienced big losses on the 7/06 heatwave.
Perhaps other locals can bring some.

Any chance Foothill can tape it for the other CRFG chapters.  I'd like to go but 400 miles away.

Warren,

   Thanks for great presentation. Do you know where I can get a copy of the slide you did? I didn't see on foothill website.

 I have a voice recording of Warren's presentation. Its missing the first minute or two.

Not sure how to upload, so those who would like a copy pm me and provide your email address. I'll try to email them to you. File is about 22MB. It should be playable with any video/audio player.

Vincent.

The presentation was e-mailed to Foothill CRFG members only.
I know Fang recorded the presentation, but it is not clear where he will post it.

I really am not sure on admission.
Perhaps an OC CRFG member can chime in.
They sent me a website link, but it doesn't say.
