Eric Bodrock is onboard as a speaker, I will check and see if he wants to vend as well, I have not confirmed but Rob is just down the road so I expect him to have a table as well.

Can you PM me with contact info for Ruben, Stubby and any others you might think of?

Cataclysm 2017 is fast approaching (September 22-24), and pre-registration is live. We are offering a wide range of pre-registration options, and as a special promotion we are going to draw one name on March 31 from all the pre-registered individuals. The winner will receive up to $50 refunded off their registration, paid in cash when you check in at the event. We will be drawing more names between now and Cataclysm, so the earlier you register the better chance you have of being picked.

I'll be there. I'm bringing my big suitcase with an empty styro box in it. That's what I'm bringing. :))

Looking forward to meeting a lot of you from this site for the first time in person.

I will be there Saturday. My fish room is still torn down after the move so I won't be buying or selling anything. But I am looking forward to seeing old friends and making some new ones.

From the FB posts of the rare fish auction there are a great many nice fish going to be available.

All this time waiting to see your fish room and then you move.
Well, next time we will do.

Next time MexnoTex. My new fish room should be really nice. Little bigger than the old one.

Meeting with the contractor tomorrow to quote the electrical, HVAC, and drains.

I'm also bringing an empty suitcase but for dry goods.

There are a few fish in the auctions I would like to bring home, but the hassle of bringing them into the UK is an issue for me, plus my fish room won't be ready for at least another 6 months, it will be in a currently non-existent extension!

Looking forward to it, it will be good to meet some of you.
