TX Frog Meet - May 16 2015

Postby Chuck Lawson » Thu Apr 02, 2015 11:38 am

It's been too long since we had a meet in the D/FW area, so I'd like to invite everybody over to eat barbeque and talk frogs.

Where - Rowlett TX (east shore of Lake Ray Hubbard). Not the same place as last time, but nearby. I'll send directions to folks who RSVP as we get closer to the time.

When - Saturday, May 16 2015, 1pm - 5pm

What - As usual, we're doing this pot luck -- I plan to smoke a brisket, we'll need drinks, plasticware and paper plates, sides, dessert and anything else y'all want to eat.

If you'll be coming, please reply, and let us know what you'll be bringing, so we don't duplicate efforts. If you're bringing frogs, etc., let everybody know, if you're bringing stuff like termite colonies, plan to keep them outside (I'm lookin' at you Brad :mrgreen: )

I tried to send you a PM but it is not letting me. Anyhow, I want to come to the meet in May. I can bring the plates and plastic utinsils if it hasn't already been claimed...

Awesome1

Hmm.... Not sure why you can't PM me; my email is lawson at nonliteral dot com, but probably easiest if people just reply in this thread so everybody knows who's bringing what.

Excellent work getting those donations Beth! Another thing that is a HUGE hit at all the East Coast meets is a plant auction. People can get uncommon and rare plants and clippings for like 2-3 bucks!!

Phil the thanks should go to the Individual's donating not me. It shows they care about the hobby and are willing to pay it forward and support the hobby.
Frog Meets are a great way for hobbyists to share information have fun and meet others.

As far as plant swaps, I doubt anyone would want any of my fancy pothos. :lol:

Thanks Beth--

Here is what I will be donating towards the auction:

Astaxanthin 2 ounces - A great natural caretenoid supplement that is a natural color enhancer and also helps with oogenesis in frogs. A great new supplement that is a must!

UniVersal Hybrid Media Kits (2) 1.5 lbs each

Universal Hybrid Media 1.5lbs (3)

Live Mood, Shag, Sheet, LIchen

Assorted FF cultures (5)

Maybe a few other things : )
_________________________________________________________________________________________________________


Here is what I will be bringing with me to sell, members can also look at my website and if there is anything they want me to bring, I can surely bring it @ no extra cost. Of course special pricing is available for those at the meet. I will have free samples of my UniVersal Hybrid Fly Media available for those whom want to try it, enough for 1 culture.

CBB Red Eye Tree Frogs $20 each
*I can bring other frogs with me, but would rather only bring if they are presold...I feel bad stuffing them in cups( if I dont have to*

Universal Hybrid Media 1.5 lbs $7, and 3lbs $15, the BULK BUCKET (only if ordered prior $90!)
Bromeliads $5 (frog free)
FF cultures (all varieties) $5
Springtails (all varieties) $5
Astaxanthin 2 ounces $15
Tid Bits tadpole diet (very rich in protein, also enriched with astaxanthin) $8

Just a note, I am not going to be setting up a store, but I will have these things available with me. I am really looking forward to seeing meeting everyone!
