    Sponcer/Table Holder/Vendor Information-

    Unless other arangments have been made, please paypal chrispatmac@comcast.net for your table reservations to be finalized. For those who have not made arangments or already paid, I will need payment to finalize your spot. Please send me a PM, note, or anything else to distinguish who is who on the paypal table payments. There have been a couple payments and I am unsure who's table they are for.

    Also- part of the table cost is a raffle donation. If you could, the sooner the better, get a picture, or even a description of what you intend donate, it would be appreciated. We would like to be able to post what all is going to be available for the raffle ahead of time, and give credit for the donations where credit is due. Pics are always a plus!!!

    We will be opening the doors at 9:30 am, for plenty of time for vendor set up!

    Table restriction exceptions-

    You may have a larger than 50 gallon tank if supplying your own table that will support this weight.

    If you cant, for one reason or another, get under power restrictions, let me know. Might be able to plan location accordingly, to compensate the over power usage. Please make sure I am contacted ahead of time.

    Good deal, I can't wait.
    Chris and Paulo
    You two put on the best swap, It is great to have the extra space just to stop and shoot the bull with everyone and not be in the way.
