As this is a stones throw from my place I shall be coming both days. Boys do you need a hand on the friday night setting things up?
Is there anyway we can get AE and TGM selling tropica plants? There is a stand selling bread and butter plants but no-one sells the kind of plants we like. Ooh if we could get TGM and AE selling anyhting that would be good... Redwood, stones, CO2... Ooooh TGM could bring down ADA stuff for sale. Please please please!!!
PS last time I checked the FBAS website they were still advertising the UKDA would be there.
Hiya, i've chatted to TGM whilst i was there the other week and they are willing to sponsor us, i am yet to speak to AE. We've gotta sort out the tanks that we are going to scape then we can maybe make a request into AE for some hardscape
I believe that you have to pay to sell things and i know it's obviously miles away from TGM and they are busy folks at the end of the day, running a shop like that takes up almost all their time so i doubt they'll be able to make it. It would be great if they could come down for a few jars though, a great laugh them pair! I know Richard from AE is also a way busy guy too, would be nice to meet him though and get to know the man behind the empire that is Aqua Essentials.
assuming im not working I will also be there this year (with or without other half's permission ). Got a friend who lives in Bishops Waltham which isnt far away so will try and stay with him. Looking forward to it!
This year will hopefully be better than last for us. We are more prepared and have a better idea how things are ran.
Me and Dan have been talking ideas of how we want to look and what we want to cover. We have a small group of solid help for the whole weekend, but if any one wants to just hang around, chat, help out where they can then of course the more the merryer.
Its a great opertunity for the southern based memebers to meet the founders and some of our modirators too. Putting nick names to faces is a humbling experiance and makes it feel more like a real tangible society.
