Default MADS meet at Scotts in March

Mid March MADS meet at Scott's in Frederick, MD.
Date: 14March or 15March, Saturday or Sunday. My preference would be Saturday
TIme: 11am-whenever
Dress: Semi-formal; men in black ties, women in gowns
Food: Subs/soda will be provided. If you feel a need to bring something--chips/snacks
Do not bring: Roaches, bad attitudes, sticky fingers or snakes
Discussion/auction: any suggestions? The auction seemed like a success worth repeating
Directions: PM me
Parking: I live in a cul-de-sac with parking up and down the street. Don't block in my neighbors and all is well
Scott

You can count on it........are you gonna bring me some standard intermedius???

Scott's place is a less than an hour from my house to his...so that means I can have two more beers than at Romans.....oh, forgot...I didn't drive....

guess I better get my snake dress out of the cleaners......

Scott,

Either date is good for me. But I think there's a herp show at The Oaks on Saturday that might keep some vendors away.

Scott

either day works for me, although Saturday may be better as it is quite a ride from NJ - I may try and car pool with someone for this (I will barter a ride for frogs or gas of course)

These Canucks plan on being there! Saturday would be better for us, but either way is fine.

Thanks, Scott! It's only 8 hours and can make a weekend out of it.

We'll probably get there quicker than the guys from Jersey lol

Just make Lou drive you

I'm a maybe at the moment. The 15th is the lady's birthday, so that might make it a little tough. I was probably the only one holding out hope for Sunday... haha

so why stop? I always say that the best part of me is the Irish... Frederick is just such a nice place...lots of neat stores, great food...people should try to stay overnight or even for a two night, three day thing....It is almost a suburb of Washington, so is quite interesting....then Gettysburg is about 20 minutes away...maybe some of the wives would want to meet up for a walking tour of Gettysburg, or at the very least go to some of the wonderful antique shops--and there are LOTS of them....Does this make the decision to attend any easier to sell????

Scott,

Many thanks for putting this gathering together...

Can you recommend any nearby motels? At my age I can't do more than six hours of driving on any given day - the old knees just can't deal with more than that.

Thanks again,
Bob

You just have to practice drinking all week for St. Patrick's day. And remember you can't be drunk all day unless you start in the morning I think I may have to try and make this meet as well.

She's right, Frederick is really nice and I would say it's considered a suburb of DC. I will put it on my calendar and try to make it!

Hi Judy,

As long as you're at it, maybe you could find a restaurant (or a bar) for locals and the people staying-over to gather at after the meet?

Thanks for the motel ID offer...
Bob

Just visited my favorite terrarium plant nursery today-- Al's Orchid in Leesburg, VA. Al used to just carry orchids, but since Mike Stroble(still in the hobby?) started helping out there, the selection of terrarium plants has increased significantly. Heck, he has more stuff growing wild on the ground than in many of our tanks!
Anyways, I picked up a $50 gift certificate to be given to whomever guesses the number of clay balls I placed in a jar (yes, I counted every one). Someone will win... could be you?

That's an awesome idea! Do they ship at all for those of us that aren't within a reasonable distance to visit the store?

I believe that "Dartsami" has the standards you are looking for...I have a pair and would love to get another pair...only one tadpole has been produced...

Yeah Judy, you should be able to get a better rate for booking a block of rooms if people commit and pay up front. Ask for a block discount.

Hi Judy,

The date would need to be finalized prior booking, I'm thinking.

Lets firm up the date:
Saturday, 14Mar15
See above...
Al's Orchid has a website, but to be honest, it only covers a very small fraction of what he has.

you gentlemen must think this is my first rodeo...the DB'ers who have met me can put that theory to rest....lol I just would like to help both Scott and people who will drive many hours to an unfamiliar place...As stated, Frederick is a beautiful small city...but Scott's place is more suburban....so exploring options for the extra curricular activities (and we know what that means.....hehehe...) is a couple of miles away. Flying Dog Brewery is pretty interesting...and one of the places "in town",,but readily accessible....more later
