I'll be there for sure. Probably on Saturday.
There's always quite a few invert dealers there.

I propose an after hours meet for dinner or something. Can't be drinks at a bar since 1. I'll be there with my kids, and 2. I don't drink.

A buffet or a Dennys, something along that line.

I do plan to go, but I want to make sure the Bugmen turnout is better than last year. I went Saturday and Glades Herp, Theraphosid breeding project and one other small booth with a few slings (I don't remember the name) were there. There were a zillion rept dealers of course. The year before there were lots of dealers Scott Crowe, Krazy Eights, Todd Gearhart, Glades Herp, Theraphosid and more. A good turnout makes it all worthwhile.;)
I don't know how many collectors are going but Garrick might go he's a cool guy with lots of experience with T's. Who else is going? Dealers Collectors?

Someone from this thread should contact all the dealers and find out if they're going this year and then post the results to this thread.

I nominate you. :)

Daytona Beach Expo..

Just curious if anyone else is planning on attending the National Reptile Breeders Expo in Daytona Beach Florida, Aug 17-19? Always a fantastic show and I havnt missed one since it started about 10 years ago. Normally at least 3-4 Tarantula dealers there, theroposid breeding project is always there. And if they decide to make the trip crazy 8s invertabrates has a very nice display also.

Hope to see a few of you there ;)

I'll be there. Most likely (if I ain't too hung over from Friday night partying) I'll be helping at the Kingsnake.com table first thing at opening of the doors on Saturday. Usually give away free tshirts and them things go fast. After that I'm gonna likely make a bee line for any spider vendor I can find ROFL.

I didnt even think to look here b4 I started a thread in the announcements section :wall:

I will be going on saturday for sure. This is always a must see show for me.

Theraphosid Breeding will be there for sure, I spoke with Billy a couple days ago.

Pennywise - I heard that Crazy 8s didnt make it last year because the drive from Cali was brutal..lol Im still hoping they show up again.

You're in Melbourne? Me too. But just barely. I live on the north side of Palm Bay Rd. Which is as south as you can get before you're in Palm Bay.

Would be great to have a little post show get together for dinner or whatever. Everyone chime in with their opinions on what/where we could get together.

I sent some emails out a week ago and I only got one answer which was from Krazy 8s of sunny cal who sends his best but isn't going to make the Daytona scene this year. I think since they discontinued the venemous show the arachnid dealers are not as interested in this event. Anyway things may pick up during the last week before the show. I will post dealers names who say they are going.;)
