I know most have read about this in the other thread but I wanted to make a new one to get everyones attention because if we want this to work, I need you guys (and gals) to help me. I am compiling the master list of email addresses, but it is up to you to send me the emails of anybody you know, have bought from, or have ever even emailed that you would think to be the least bit interested. Don't just respond to this thread and say your in, I need you to send me a personal message with any email addresses of froggers in the midwest. We don't want anybody to be left out. I look forward to talking and eventually meeting with you all. Later

Kevin,

I am bad, I still haven't emailed you the list of names of people who might be interested. Shame on me!

But, I wanted to know if you could put together a generic sign up for that we can place on our table in Indy this weekend. We will also be handing out flyers with a blurb about the group as well as info about DendroBoard.

I don't have a problem figuring out how to make lines, forms, etc...I just thought you should be the one creating the material. If it is ok, I will also put your info down as the contact for the group.

I can easily make a sign for you to put up. Do you have a color printer, should I even bother with color graphics. You put my name and email address for contact information (Kevin Hoff [email protected]). For anyone curious if this anything with this has actually happened. Well, the email list of people that expresses interest is up to about 35. If anyone has not sent me an email saying they are interested, I would do so soon. In about a week I will probably send out a newsletter to let everyone know that this thing is for real, and what we will be doing. I think your rover meeting idea was great because the midwest dart froggers are quite a bit more spread out than I thought. I will keep everyone updated! Later

color printer...

Of course we have a color printer. I would go ahead and do it in color if we have ink...if not, we have a HP 2100 Laser that does really well. What I might do is put a high quality display in color and do the handouts in black and white.

Did you see my other message about Logistics issues?

Logistics Issues

I just copied and pasted this from the other section... but it applies to both threads.

I just thought of this, but there are some state laws we need to be aware of.

Ohio - all animals entering the state need to have a vet check.

KY - need to obtain a transportation permit permit prior to entering the state ($25 fee) and list all animals and the dates/locations you will be.

IN - Prohibites the transportation into the state and ownership of any animal that is poisonous enough in its natural environment to cause serious harm, even death regardless of its toxicity levels in captivity. In other words, forget Terribilis.

Yes, all the rules suck, but it is better to always follow them then run the risk of the negative publicity that would be generated if someone got caught breaking them.

Technically wouldn't Bicolors and possibly aurotaenia fall under the IN law too. I know they both have the same type of toxins as the terribilis, but are obviously not quite as strong. So that means nobody can sell any of these at the INDY show? That is just about the stupidest law I've ever heard. Driven by pure ignorance! Oh well, thats democracy for ya! Later

Hey have you talked to anyone from the chicago herp society or any lawyers yet so we can set this up as a nonprofit organization? If not i have someone working with the chicago herp society to make this happen. If so i'll stop and have you handle it. Im sure there is laws in IL about this.

I have done some checking and there appears to be less strict regulations in Michigan for poisonous/venomous animals. Meaning Terriblis is not an issue here. The only laws pertaining to venomous/ poisonous seem to be for michigan wildlife and that import and exotics are permit free. With michigan only 50 or so miles from chicago it could be moved to alleviate any problems.

Jason,
I have no contacts within the Chicago Herp Society and have done nothing with the legalities of the organization. You can head up that, if you know any people that help us out. If anyone is fluent with webpage construction, we should think about that too. We would also need to get a domain hopefully for free. If not, I could always set something up on angelfire, but the options would be very limited with that. Later

Hi I'm new to this, and would love to be part of the midwest group. I live in Leavenworth Kansas, and am just getting set up. Let me know what I need to do to get this list and be added to it.

That post you brought up was form 2004. :) There are still meetings about once a year, just keep looking in this section for any announcements. I have a email chain started, but it is not used much. Hopefully we will have something this summer or fall. I live in Minneapolis area, so it is a 7 hour drive for me to Chicago, but I do it when I can. It is good time.
