Thumbs up Manitoban Reptile Show.


Hi there fellow herpers:

I am thinking out loud about a reptile show in Manitoba. Many things must be considered before the initial idea and then the structure to create a show and get it from idea to exhibition. I am at the moment pondering the idea as many might have before. So right now I am just wondering a few things.

How many people in Manitoba are there with the love for reptiles?

Own 1 or more reptiles?

Breed any reptile species?

Would you come to this show as an observer?

Would you come to this show as an exhibitor?

Would help make this idea possibly?

How many people from anywhere in Canada or USA would come?

I have attended a few shows only in Alberta so far from Calgary to Red Deer and my passion for boas especially is what drove me to make these 16 hour drives possibly. Being we are in the middle of Canada are there any others that would make and help a Manitoban show a reality. We have considered this idea for a long time and I have discussed it with a few private people owing small - modest collections. The main focus being more to unite the herp communities on a country wide theme. Image seeing people from BC to NFLD from private collectors to reputable breeders. Not to mention if done at the right time all our fellow Canadian herpers can enjoy Manitoban attractions, celebrations and activities that our proud province provides. We are not only known for the blizzard winters and our native birds the

I know from the shows I attended I made some really great friends there for the first time and many others that I met over the net. And this idea would help match faces with people on the forums. I know its alot to ask from everything to being able to attend to affording the trip. But like Martin Luther King said "I have a dream" and I just added "that all herpers would unite!".

Well that my 2 maybe 3 cents, does anyone care to comment?
