This is better than I could put it; I'm in a similar position in terms of time balancing and lecture burnout, although I'm closer geographically. +1 on the game time decision.I've got lots of other things to do, I'm allergic to meetings and sitting listening to long talks, my tanks are pretty well stocked, and while room sales are cool, driving out to Dulles and then back at 10 pm after a long week of work doesn't sound like fun.
I'm on the fence because the speakers are excellent, the auction will have cool stuff, and lots of my friends will be there.
I expect I'll sit on the fence until right before Aquafest.
If you're attending...especially the auction...volunteers are needed on Sunday: http://www.pvas.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=62&t=6375
One of the purposes of the Sales Spree is so that you can do room sales and attend the convention/speakers. At a lot of other conventions people end up having to make a choice between which they concentrate on.You can sell from your room all weekend, but I wouldn't expect much, if any, traffic on Saturday. Most folks will be down stairs at the convention.
There's a lot of angels listed in the auction..but just in case maybe Greengirl may have some for sale in spree on threeFolks,
I'm headed over tonight to Aquafest hoping to find a few fish. I'm especially interested in some nice Angels and some electric blue rams? Anyone have any of these to trade or sell?
