Thanks Roland. It's only a week away!! I'm so nervous and so excited at the same time!! I can't wait. I just hope it's a success and that the exhibitors & visitors are happy.

I'll be raffling up a Boa again too :)

Awesome stuff. Is the Boa being raffled at the Expo or the ARK Braai. We are looking for sponsors to be raffled at the ARK Braai.
See you there.

Awe, BB your'e a star.
Just by the by, exactly which Hotel is it at, I ask because I took a driveby yesterday and found the following hotels all together.
Garden Court Umhlanga, Gateway Hotel and Protea Hotel Umhlanga.
I do not want to cause confusion, but I need to know exactly where to plan my parking.
4 More Sleeps.

Roland it is the Gateway hotel which is connected to the Gateway shopping centre. You can park inside the Gateway mall parking and then just keep walking towards where the wave machine and the skate park is. The hotel is on the ground level so as you walk towards the parking area turn right and you will see the conference centre behind the big glass doors.
It is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.

Those who are afraid to ask are ashamed of learning.

Heidi - This may be a little too late, but there is no advert in the Northglen News. I have been through it 3 times and checked.

As per usual, I can't sleep before the expo.

I hope those that are in KZN will come support the exhibitors. They have taken the plunge with us to make this expo possible. With your support it will only get bigger & better each year.

Remember, 10am - 5pm on Saturday and 9am - 4pm on Sunday.

Remember the get together tomorrow (Sunday) at 2pm. I suggest we meet at the bar just outside the venue. I will join you all as soon as I am done with the raffle draw.

See you guys later!!

What a way to spend a Saturday.
I really enjoyed the expo and loved seeing so many indigenous, something the keepers from Gauteng don't get to see too often.
As usuall Heidi and Arno have put in a great deal of effort and the organization has been fantastic.
Let's try and get even more people through the door tomorrow, so everyone, let all your friends and family know.
J_Bay, will see you tomorrow.

Thanks Very much folks (Heidi and Arno and unknown others) for organising this Expo down in KZN at last! We have never made it to the Gauteng Expos, so this was a treat.

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed it, seeing plenty of new species for the first time. Even though our intention was really to just go and have a look, we ended up with four snakes, a leopard gecko, two tarantulas and two pairs of hissing cockroaches! Oh also a smaller cooler of frozen mice – thanks Paul!

I don’t think we added much financially to the turnover but we have basically taken care of a couple of Christmas presents……………. or perhaps just changed December’s menu to simple basic food stuffs (bread and water!)!!

Great meeting even more of you today. Thanks again
