Thanks Walter - Red Deer Show was great!

Well, Holy Cow! He kinda outdid himself this time, the show went great, best show I've ever been to.

I'll post some of the snakes I picked up from the show once they settle and I get a few pictures. I did come home with a male striped surinam, the planets were aligned in my favor (and Dan was chicken to arm wrestle me for one). Also picked up other boas Dan produced, via a trade with a friend.

Only 1 more year till the next one! Can't wait!

I have to agree with Ryan! Those of you who didn't make it out, missed a great show!! Walter was a great host and organiser! Was our first Red Deer show and needless to say, it won't be the last. I'm sure Walter has the precise tally of the amount of people who showed up. We're not just talking herpers but general public and first time herp owner. Lots of people picking up supplies, tanks etc.

There were some awesome display and some A+ vendors who I met for the first time. A BIG thanks goes out to SCALES + Walter (who made it all possible, in more ways than one!) and Ken and Erin for their generous hospitality! Many more thanks to all those I missed out. You know who you are! *descends stage*

Pics will be up shortly.

My trip had its ups () and downs () but the show was GREAT and I had a blast! I met a ton of great people, saw some amazing animals and bought WAY more than I expected to!

Thanks Walter and Bonnie for all your hard work.

Thanks to Kyle, Mark, Jeff, Troy, and Katt for the superb animals! I will post pics of the spoils when I've had a chance to chill out for a bit. Too much spending, standing and driving makes Jack a dull boy... LOL

I can't wait for next year!

** Show pics and animal pics to follow...

I gotta thank a ton of people for the great time this weekend. A big thanks and hug to Walter and Bonnie. Vendors were treated EXTREMELY well by these two and the show was great!!

A big thanks to Ryan and Sheila. We wouldn't have been able to go without those two.

A big thanks to Ken and Erin (Invictus/TheRedDragon).

Thanks to Mark for KILLER ANIMALS!! Top notch stock! Moe for a great deal! And to Richard Welter for his amazing animals. I can't wait to post pics and show how great the animals I received from these guys are!

Special thanks to Corey Woods, Courier Extrordinaire.

I'd like to thank the gentleman from whom I bought a grey rat from. Thanks Sir I have realized a dream!

And thanks to everyone I met and didn't talk enough to, but most especially Big Dan for the best nightly entertainment in Red Deer.

I think i speak for myself and Mo when I say " I still want my damn hamburger". It was a good show with lots of foot traffic. Definitely Walters best show to date. Congrats Walter and you are lucky for some reason I deleted the picture of you in gum boots and the pink shirt. We will get you back though.

Greg

Well this year show was absolutely great. I had a lot of fun talking to old friends and meeting some new ones, Walter and Bonnie did an incredible job as always. However I have something to say about Albertans hospitality, Greg and Myself did not get fed at the BBQ. I had to go search for a Wendys after the BBQ I was so hungry. I did not think that Albertans would be so mean toward BC people to starve them. I guess it's a lesson learned I will pack a lunch for Greg and Myself next year.
But anyways great show Walter keep it up. I would dare to say it was the best show I ever attended. Now that Walter set the bar so high let's see what the other organizers will come up with.

The Red Deer show was fantastic, great job Walter and I'm looking forward to next years!! Must say the Highlight for me was that Corey was there with his amazing animals, just getting to see a pied was amazing, not to mention sitting next to them drooling over them all weekend. Congrats on a great job Walter!

Many thanks to Walter (and Bonnie) for yet another great show. Definately some ups and downs but brought home some great new corns from Mark (gonesnakee) and was seriously tempted by some exceptional Sonoran gopher snakes - ghost and hybino as well as a snow - outstanding from Darwin's Oasis!! but had to leave those behind. Also got to bring home an absolutely outstanding Hondo from Classic - absolutely the nicest tangerine hondo I have ever seen - was thrilled to get her!!

Was great to meet many people from ssnakess and certainly lots of traffic through the show - will post pics when through recovering -
