I'm in on the carpooling. As for the assassin snails, I can def. cough up 2, don't know if I have enough to offer 4 atm. I do have some itty bitty babies, though, so I should have more juvie snails available soon.

As for the NAS, I'm going to go start another thread with all the info - but in brief, it's March 6th and located in Westport, CT. NAS is one of the NEC's constituent clubs.

LOL, me neither - gotta save cash for the shopping - so I'm hoping they have a vendor-room-only registration option (other cons I've been to do) - don't much care to go to the lectures or dinner events when I could be emptying my wallet of its sparse contents. I do recall reading that you don't need to register for the convention to attend the auction. I think a bidder card costs like $2, not exactly going to break the bank On the other hand, the things I buy at the auction...


Checked the registered lot list for the auction. Someone's bringing yellow shrimp! And there are red claw macro shrimp, too. Also a few crayfish species I already own... Hopefully someone who didn't pre-reg will bring some white Procambarus clarkii or Cambarellus shufeldtii...
