    thanks. I did look at their facebook page but couldn't see that anywhere. I don't have facebook so was on using my wife's account and probably didn't know what to look for/at. I network the old fashion way

    I got out there! It was quite busy when I attended. I got there right at 12:00 as I didn't want to miss out on potential frags!! If I'm honest it was quite a bit smaller than I expected (never been to a frag show). There were lots of choices regardless of size though. In my haste to get there in time I didn't remember my cooler so I didn't stick around too long. I found the frags I wanted and left.

    I would definitely go again. If I had anything constructive to add, it would be more vendors... but more is almost always better right

    I made it there. Most of the regular vendors were in attendance, along with a few new faces. The most notable newcomer was probably Crazy for Corals from Kingston who brought along their trailer with a self-contained frag store. The doors opened a little early but the usual crowds never showed up and the show was pretty much over by 1:30. I'm sure this probably hit the bottom line of all of the vendors, but must have been very hard for some of the smaller guys selling less exotic stuff. There was a lot of speculation about why the turnout was so small, including the fact that the show was moved to a Sunday, as well as the nice weather. As for me, I went looking for some colourful mushrooms and red and pink pieces to fill in some holes. Without the crowds I was able to pickup some nice mushrooms and a few Reefraft Acros and Montis. Hopefully the small turnout at Sunday's show won't discourage the organizers and vendors from putting on future shows.

    I made it out as well, didn't think I would until the last minute. It was my first show as well, so i wasn't sure what to expect. It was small, and I was honestly surprised at the quality and variety of the stuff from some of the vendors, maybe most was sold before I got there. I got there about 20 past noon and left before 1. I saw Gina, Yvette and Scott but missed the rest of you. I am looking forward to London though, heard some good things about that show. I picked up a few things (including an acrylic frag rack for $5!) but mostly went to check it out.

    sorry, I should have added that I saw Dave as well. As always he had some nice stuff, once I was able to elbow past all the other sightseers.

    I was on the fence about going to the show for a while. Kitchen renovations meant I had work to do instead..

    I did pick up some frags on Thursday from "Salty Cracker", the organizer from the London show, to quench my thirst.
