I sure wish I could go! My wife and I are having a baby on November 22. Do you think she'd miss me if I was at the Extravaganza instead? :lol:

Dave,

I'm pretty sure she'll be busy that weekend and won't miss you. :D

Congratulations! Don't worry we'll be here for a few more years!

Dave,

When I was born, my father was on a ship in the Navy. He requested leave to be there when I was due, but the captain told him, "You were there to lay the keel, they don't need you for the launching!"

However, I doubt that your wife will feel the same way. :lol:

Congratulations on the expectation, BTW!

Hello everyone,

According to our web page there are only 28 days left to this years show. http://www.ohiocichlid.com/home

If you are planning on attending we suggest you at least reserve a room at the hotel. The rooms are moving at a steady pace. This is no ploy to boost room sales; we normally need to bump the block of rooms a couple times each year.

We've added yet another speaker this year! Charley Grimes will be joining us for another visit. Charley is one of the funniest hobbyists I know and his talks always have them rolling in the isles! That makes 6 different speakers giving 7 different talks! What next?

I’ll tell you what next! We’re having a special raffle of donated items that will be signed by our speakers. We’ll have limited numbers of Books, DVDs and what ever else we can get our hands on!! If you’d like to donate something please contact me directly via Email - [email protected] or 440-885-2033.

The value just keeps getting better and better! Where else can you get 7 top notch speakers, a convention T-shirt and a weekend full of Cichlids for only $35?? No where I tell you, no where!!

Thanks for looking and we hope you can join us for fun and Cichlids at the Ohio Cichlid Associations Extravaganza 2009!!!

Please visit us at http://www.OhioCichlid.com for more details.
