Default Chicago meeting

Well it starting to get nice out and I think Pete should host a meeting soon. At least we could do is try to plan it early due to the fact that most people have plans?(vactions, etc.) I'll talk to Pete and find out what he thinks. Any thoughts? Wait till its more summertime or do 2. any date suggestions?
Just getting the ball rolling JP

I've never been to a meeting, and would love to attend one.

I have a wedding to go to the third weekend of June.

Hey Chicago!
We have been invited to attend, and we just might take Pete up on his invite!
Here is a partial list of what we have available to bring with us.

Auratus: Costa Rican and Nicaraguan
Tincs: yellowback, green sipiliwini, powder blue
Intermedius
Imitator
Imitator Tarapoto (these offspring are from the ones that are producing our 'albinos'.)

We will be able to accept MasterCard and Visa for your purchase.

Pete will have plenty of fruit fly cultures available as well as his fruit fly media, plants, and other assorted terrarium supplies (ghostwood, corkbark, etc).
It is shaping up to be a great meeting. We look forward to seeing you there!

I am the one having the meeting on July 19th but I am a good 6-7 hours from Chicago. I will understand if some of the Michigan people did not come. I would not pass up going to Pete's either and a lot of Michigan people came down here last year. This is just the date that worked for us and I figured I was far enough away that it would not affect Chicago's attendence too much.

Four weeks and counting!
I spoke to Pete last night, and he said he has had a lot of people contact him, so we should have a good turn out.
Rich, I'm sorry to hear you won't be able to make it.

I spoke with Pete today at the swap and he urged me to post here to bump this back up to the top. Meeting is July 19. I've got the frogs listed below available and provided they don't sell first, anyone interested in them and also coming to Pete's let me know. I can sit on them for the next couple weeks until Pete's cook-out if you want to pick them up then.



0.0.3 Mantella crocea CB $60

0.0.5 Mantella pulchra $ 90

0.0.4 Mantella laevigata $70

Will sell whole lot for $200 - (all frogs from Devin Edmonds' stock - crocea are CB, and others are LTC from Devin and were treated for parasites back when he first imported them)

I saw Pete at the swap yesterday and he told me about the meeting. I plan on being there with myself and a non frogger friend. Seeing as this is my first post HELLO and nice to meet everyone, its been good looking at everyone elses vivs and frogs and absorbing your information as much as I can. Hope to talk to more of you and be on here with some pictures soon.
