NEC thread...March 25-27
Hi y'all
I know I haven't made it to any of the CAPE meetings but was hoping to some time. I see at least a few of you are thinking about attending the NEC. I won't be going the entire weekend but will plan to be there for the AGA meeting Friday afternoon, and of course browse the vendor room. I know Bailin (TexEx) is planning on it too. Bailin has LOADS of stuff to sell and/or trade. I should have mucho plant material myself.

Why don't we see if we can meet up after the AGA meeting and do some chatting & trading?
and on behalf of bailin.

Hi Penny,
I'm planning to head up there for the Sunday auction (always the best part of fish shows/cons IMO). Dunno about anyone else for sure, but I think it's easiest for most of us to go up there on Sat &/or Sun - I, for instance, have a 5 hour studio art class of doom followed by a shift at my part time library job every Friday. I imagine others may have similar work or school commitments. I'd love to have a swap meet at the NEC con, don't get me wrong, I'm just not sure many people can be there on Friday :(

On the other hand, you could always drop off all the stuff you have for trade at the auction and make some cash instead ;)

I'm working Friday :( But I'm planning on going Saturday though (Sunday = Family Day)... Anyone? Let's carpool!

hello- Bailin may be there Sat/Sun, I don't know...For me it's easy on Friday as I go after work & I'm halfway there. You all really should catch Karen Randall's presentations some time. She is great.

Anyhoo have fun! I'll catch up with you all one of these days!

PS the auction is awesome, but HUGE and it takes all day. Recommend bumping your stuff up, if they still do that.

Karen Randall gave a presentation at House of Fins (Greenwich) back in October. It was pretty cool - all about nano tanks and stuff.

As for the auction, the all day ones are the best kind - means that if you wait 'til the end, everyone else is broke and you can practically steal stuff. :) Once I waited 'til the end of an auction and got a bag of 5 adult panda koi angelfish for $5 o_O Good times.

Re: NEC thread...March 25-27
Thanks for the idea....I may just put some stuff in the auction. I could use some dough.

Re: NEC thread...March 25-27
LOL I think we all could. This hobby isn't cheap!

Maybe you should put some stuff up for bid at the NAS auction earlier in the month to raise funds for the NEC. I'm going to try something similar (except we all know I'll still end up spending more than I earn :P)

Just to double check, the NEC convention is March 25-27 weekend? I need to send out an email soon to the club with the dates.

I'd love to carpool. People coming from the south could park by my house and we can carpool from here.

Amanda - do you have any assassin snails for sale? I think I'd like to buy 2-4 of them since I think the 3 you gave me last time are all the same sex.
