How does one go about getting frogs from Chicago to Maryland if they buy them at Frogday? Legally? do you have to ship them to yourself? drive them to Maryland or do some of the vendors offer shipping. I would love to attend but would not like to make the drive.

I will be driving from Texas for this show. 16 hours there, 16 back. 32 hours of driving for frogs, this addiction is worse than crack...

I will be in Chicago for this. Going to make sure I complain the entire time though about being in the city of sports teams I dispise.

Ditto! We'd love to help advertise any way we can (fliers in orders, banners on our site, in our newsletters, etc.). Being in a more central position I think this show has the potential to be huge.

Any info on sponsorship?

It sounds a lot more like "aboat" than "aboot" to me.

Ditto, shoot us some post cards and we'll include in all shipments. PM me if you need any help with the materials, I had a lot of help when Chuck and I hosted.

Sign me up for this event. I think it would be worth the drive up. I'd love to actually make it up there though. I'll have to see if we have open house at work though.

If history tells us anything it's that you can't go wrong buying wholesale frogs and selling them for more than you paid for as Step 3....

I'm gonna try to make this, girlfriend wants to visit her best friend in Chitown sometime this spring anyways. I'll at least have a place to stay, so you all won't find me huddled in an alley with my frogs like the aforementioned crackheads.

Far better is selling them without actually ever buying them, the profit margins in that equation are better than ATM fee's.
