    2017 Pet Expo - sign up thread!

    Hello SCAPERS,

    It's that time of year. Scape will be representing once again at Pet Expo in Costa Mesa, this is a great opportunity to show off your tanks and converse with people that share your hobbies and love for pets!

    Here is the website for more information. http://www.petexpooc.org/

    We will need volunteers to man the booth, wipe tanks and clean up.

    We also need display tanks, We rely on our members and their awesome aquascapes to display in our booth. If you cannot attend you can still show off your tank. Set up days are usually Wednesday/Thursday and tear down is always after the show Sunday evening.

    Here is a brief schedule, so you know what you are getting yourselves into:

    Tuesday: tank placement, decorating, and filling.

    Wednesday: Last minute decorating, and adding fish.

    Thursday: last minute cleaning, betta changes (1000 bettas), and setting the SCAPE booth.

    Friday-Sunday will be pulling deceased fish, and talking to the public.

    Sunday night is teardown...

    Oh, and don't forget to sign up for the aquascaping competition! I wish that I was allowed to enter!!!

    Got the list going based on previous years. Please let me know if you are interested and I will add you in. To prevent booth over crowding I will be leaving the booth during show days with only 6 slots. Anyone else that would like to attend those days will have to dedicate their time to helping event coordinators on the floor.

    I would suggest to put times on setups on when people will be there since it would be pointless if someone showed up at 12pm on thursday and they are the only one there.

    You can put me down for thursday. Late afternoon. I might bring a vivarium setup just depends if it will be fully planted by then.

    Wow. I was not aware that the event would even be open for setup on wednesday/thursday. I should have figured, as i used to do conventions like NAMM and we would sometimes have a whole week before.

    There is little chance I can take Wednesday through Friday off, but I will try and get Thursday and Friday off ASAP and then post here as soon as I get confirmation. If i can pull it off, I will be there Wednesday through Sunday and attempt to compete on the fluval contest as well.

    Previous years, this was not a problem as long as members set up before show opening. However I am just a coordinator helping keep track of volunteers, best to pm John since he is the one that works hand in hand with the event organizers. Things might be more strict this year with load in load out times.
