That is on our list of things to look at for the next show. This was our first year with full on-line registration. We're only fish geeks so it takes time to fin things out.
I know bad joke but we'll make improvements so you won't get a thorough going over next time.
Thanks for the input. Dan
For the trip down, I had the confirmation of registration from the OCA and the Holiday Inn printed, as well as the speakers schedule, that helped to confirm the legitimacy of the event ... "Really, a 3 day Tropical Fish Convention ? "
Yes, really !
For the trip back into Canada, it would have been nice to have some kind of receipt from the OCA with the species name of the fish purchased.
Starting in December there are certain species that are restricted or no longer allowed to be brought into Canada.
Also, you have to convince the border/customs agent that you are a hobbyist, and your full time job is not an importer/wholesaler/professional fish breeder
