Thanks from a Newbie from Canada

Postby zenins » Mon Nov 22, 2010 9:59 pm

Hey OCA,

Thanks for putting on a great weekend for all of us in this hobby it was my first OCA Extravaganza.
The speakers and topics were very interesting, and great videos.
There were awesome fish in the show !
Buying from vendors in their rooms and at the swap meet was crazy exciting, we don't have this at our Canadian Association of Aquarium Clubs (CAOAC) conventions ... Hey Bob, how about it ?
The auction had some fish that I had only seen before in books.
It was great to see so many other Canadians there too :)

I have posted some photos on my home forum here:

I will post more photos later this week ...

Great photo's Zenin!!! Also, thanks for sponsoring a trophy class for the show. I'm sure you'll be a regular for many years to come. Happy Holiday's!!

The Canadians always make the show rock!
We are so very lucky that you guys all come down every year!
It would not be the same show without our Northern Brothers!

Hey all,

I have added some more pages of photos at the link in the first post.

You don't have to sign in, just navigate to the next pages ...

Maybe next year, I can talk some more from my club to attend. The drive from Kitchener Ontario to Strongsville Ohio through Western New York state and Pennsylvania was less than going to Ottawa, which is in the same province :shock:

Thanks for joining us, Zenin, and for posting the nice pics. I love that pleco type - had them some years back and managed to kill 'em! Beautiful animals I'll have to try again though.
Regards,
