-Since we changed servers...this is the first time i have tried to do the pics for the show....unfortunately for me, i can't post in the same manner i used to as i found out this morning. The show thread takes about three hours of my time just to post!!! With that said..i got up at three a.m. this morning to edit...download and post...well it crashed three times on me . So in my madness at about noon...i gave up and went to bed. I am ready to try again...but please i need some help...PLEASE I BEG YOU PLEASE DO NOT RESPOND TO THE THREAD UNIT IT IS FINISH...I WILL LET YOU KNOW WHEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.....or you will force me to simply edit you out...which is more of my time....thanks for understanding
First off i would like to say a huge thank you to Grant and staff at Port Credit Pet Centers for yet another flawless show
This show was suppose to be slower than usual, but with the amount of advertisement renerated from the site, along with pcpc, and great ppl like yourselves coming out for it...the show was a huge success...busier than any on dreamed!!!
Every vendor i talked to told me they had done extremely well with sales that day. Lots of our members took home great new pets and were able to find most of what they were looking for.
The sSnakeSs.com booth did extremely well. By the end of the day our table looked bare!!! Thanks again those who bought items and supported us!
This show was a first time multi-media display for the site...We featured a computer display showing the site, complete with over 1200 of your pictures, and all timed to music. We got huge compliments on the set up...and even had vendors scream at us to put the music back on when it had finished looping through!!!
It was such a success, that we are now working on a larger display for possibly the next show. Our future goals would like to see a full multimedia display with over head monitors, tonnes of sound...more pictures and possibly a live web broadcast...bring all of us...right to your living rooms
With the busy display and sales came sheer madness from the large crowds hovering around us all day...a special thank you goes out to Matt K, Trace, and Kat, who all gave Jeff and i a hand at the booth from time to time when we needed it...thanks guys..you made our day smoother
Okay....enough talk...here is the pics..enjoy
The day greeted us at the show early in the morning with harsh winds blowing from the North. The day however soon warmed up and even gave us some sunlight which mad going outside bareable. Here is a pic of the outside of the venue around 7:30 a.m.
Here is a look at the inside of the venue early in the morning when we arrived...as you can see...there wasn't many vendors there yet...as Jeff likes to drag me out of bed at about 4 a.m. for a show that starts at 8:30 a.m. that is only about twenty minutes from my house!!!
Here is Jay and company from Jasons snakes...i think they got there a little early..as they were pretty much the only vendor inside..at a table..all set up and ready to go. Missing was fellow member Christina...i hope to see you at the next show
So early infact...that i hadnt even started thinking about doing a set up..when they were digging in for breakfast!!!
What could bring more pleasure than meeting up with the man behind the show. This is Grant from Port Credit Pet Centers. The host of our show..and quite frankly one of the most handsome ppl i have even met....and yes..thats him smiling as he greets me in the morning...about the same look he always has when i talk to him. Poor Grant gets up and starts the show at 2 a.m. setting up tables etc for the rest of us. Thanks Grant, your efforts don't go un-noticed ( Im still going to make fun of you however!!!)
Here is another pic of grant.....i was going to put a caption on it..but i have decided not to...instead i would like to name this piece....I will call it...early morning sun...creates partial solar eclipse!!! (if you dont get that yet...you will later)
Hey...he complained last time that i didnt get enough pics of him..this will teach him
As usual, there was an amazing selection of animals on display...here are just some...First off a large peach throat monitor...i believe All i know is that his guy was one angry dude..hissing and whipping the glass with his tail....errr maybe that was just me bugging him
These were part of Port Credit Pet Centers display...i couldnt take my eyes off these little guys!!!
Can you tell i was in love with these things yet?
Im actually surprised that these pics even came out...as these beauties were so small...some stock from Mark Pepper of Understory Enterprises...i drooled over these all day
Okay..so i can't remember who this vendor was..but i do remember him telling me that i would never get a pic of his frogs as they were so tiny..in such a small heavily planted tank...and the tank had no lights...well i should have bet you money
May God bless the canon G2
Here is Lisa & Katey's newest member..a new blood...sorry guys i though that i had the camera alot more focased when i took it
These were part of the display from the great ppl of J.D. Terrariums..more on them to follow
Okay...so here is the part that takes a long time to do..it is also the part that everyone loves the most....the vendors and the members being made fun of....you all have sick minds lol.
I talked to our first victum a whole of about 10 seconds...i believe that he told me he was a member and that his name was Dave..sorry if i have that wrong

Here is an early morning look at the booth before the mad rush of ppl coming in
Member Aaron showed up at the show with a new hair do....he died it pink on a dare....ill tell more of that story later
We had several celebrities join us on this fine day..including our official cartoonist Dean ( a.k.a.) Dino. He showed up at the booth with a box of his work all framed, signed and ready to go....i am happy to report..that i am now the proud owner of three of his works....Dean i will display these proudly over my computer..thanks again. I think everyone should snap one or more of these up while you can...this guy is going to be big...so get in touch with member Dino...so you can make arrangements..his pricing is very cheap..and the work is excellent!!!
