Some Brits, Welsh and Irish folks would be appreciated too, if you've got the social capital. :))

Since I am close to leaving the hobby and in the process of selling all of my fish, I hope to be there. If I am I should have a number of L173 (both from WC and TR parents) for sale. I may also bring 236s (RB line, non- RB line and RB super white line). Finally, I may even have some zebras.

Fingers crossed that I make the farewell tour.

I just sent the communication to get onto the 3rd floor for room sales. Assuming there are still rooms left there I will be coming. If the third floor is all booked up, then I wish all a great time.

Hope that works out Chris, will be good to see you.

I am considering producing a Planet T-shirt for the event - would anyone be interested?

I am in. While PC T-shirts would be cool, I never wear T-shirts and do not own any. On the other hand my bro must have over 100 Grateful Dead and other band T-shirts.

Of all the speakers for the Convention the one I most want to meets and be able to talk with is Leandro. All my plecos are Big bend fish and he sure knows that stretch of river. Next most is Eric.

The last two CatCons I sponsored several speaakers. But the ones I wanted to do this time have been taken.

Unfortunately, for me this event is most work. So I do get to do much more than set-up the room for sales, sell, sleep, pack up to leave and, with luck, attend at least one presentation. This is my farewell tour as well as it is for the event.

I will be attending!
I'm really bummed it's the last one though. I had big dreams of being invited to speak at one of these one day, once I get some catfishy publications under my belt.
