    We'll make a posting about it when the registration is open. Definitely let you and everyone know. As soon as you can purchase a ticket, you'll be able to register a table.

    Sounds Good. I hope this event is successful for both CAs and the CCA like it has been over the years.

    I keep missing this event due to prior commitments. I am leaving for a cruise on Saturday morning. Do vendors set up early on Friday that I can do some shopping?

    Most vendors will set up early afternoon or evening, partly because check in isn't until early afternoon, so they don't have somewhere to keep the rest of their stuff unless they check in on thursday.

    Few quick questions:
    - when is the next big fish deal? (date)
    - where is the next big fish deal? will it be at the same hotel as this year?

    Look up at the top menu directly under the CCA page header and select the "Big Fish Deal" tab and it will take you to the BFD page with all the info you need.

    Tickets and tables are now available for registration.

    I don't really need to book a hotel room... I live under an hour away :) i think. I'm not to good with estimating car ride times.

    I thought that the first year I went to the BFD. I made sure to book a room the next year and I will again this year. There's so much more that goes on around the event that you can take part in when you don't have to worry about driving back and forth.
    If you can afford to, I recommend staying at the hotel.
    Now if you are under 30 minutes away then you're one lucky guy and do you have a spare room? :)

    I live just over an hour away, but I always stay at least one of the two nights. I'd likely stay both nights, but I usually have to go back home to pick up fish I'm bringing to the event.

    On saturday, the normal activities don't end until 10:30, or 11PM. In the past we've broken down the auction racks and emptied tanks, which could take until at least midnight. This year we may leave them up, but there's still plenty going on in the hotel. I think most years I stayed up until at least 2AM just hanging out with people and enjoying the company, I think I've seen people up as late as 5AM.

    It's nice to have a place to store fish or supplies, or just take a break if you're feeling tired during the day. I also like being able to lay down as soon as I'm done hanging out with people, an hour drive after a long day of event activities will feel a lot longer at that point.

    I mean the reason I didn't stay at the hotel last year was 1. I went the first day just really quick to see what was going on, also to see Joey, (I was honestly there to see him, when I saw it was at a familiar location) and 2. I went the second day cuz that was when everything was on sale. That's when I got my rio esmeraldas gold acaras.
    also I had something else to do that day... If there's something to do on a weekend (cca meeting, reptile expo, bfd, b-day party, etc) I plan for it, then when I go I usually go at most till 3-4 pm. after that I either have to do something after or my mom goes to work. (I'm under 18, can't really do anything without my parents)

    Maybe one day I'll get myself a table. Is there an age restriction to who can rent a table?
    Here's a list of what I might have:
    what I have breeding now:
    -
    white mickey mouse platy
    what I plan to breed:
    -marbled honduran red point from Rapps
    -variatus platies
    -Maybe guppy and molly hybrid (not any time soon)

    Yes. Select the Big Fish Deal tab in the main menu and it takes you to the BFD web page. Then click on the Register tab and it will give you ticket options to purchase.
