Thanks officer and board members and vendors for the Frag show

Recommended Posts

 

Special thanks to the entire current officer and board members. Because of traveling and  other commitments and simply needing to take a break I was not as involved with this years event. Thanks for stepping up and working hard and keeping the momentum going!

It was nice to be able to step back and just enjoy the show.

You are all the best and it’s so great to see people work so hard for a good cause. I know all the behind the scenes planning and time it takes. I know the waking up at 4am.  I hope you made lots of money for TFT and the vendors did too! These frag shows are always a blast! 

The raffle prizes were phenomenal and the guest speaker Mr. Saltwater Tank was an excellent choice!

:clap::yippee:

@badxgillen our fearless leader and @Lexinverts the master set up and clean up people who got up at the crack of down and drove 2 hours to get there. They are always the first to be there and the last to leave!

@Gumby for all you do for the Boys and Girls club. The new tank looks amazing ! I loved the signs your son made! He’s a talented young man!

 

@albertareef for being the media support and overall just fill in where you can. Thanks for all the behind the scenes work that you do. 

@Paratore you were working hard in the raffle section and did a great job !

@Jeremevans for your excellent treasury skills and getting the guest speaker hotel set up as well as just your knowledge and skills with the financial aspect of these events! 

@kknight for manning the front and being the TFT coordinator for so many years !

@Flashy Fins for the coordination of the event. 

@stylaster for also being there early with helping with setting it up. 

 

I know there are others I have missed please post in here those who I missed . Again special thanks to all the vendors and sponsors for the donations and everyone who showed up! Support these sponsors and vendors who support us! Thanks again!  There are a lot of hours and hard work to set these events up !!

Thanks to everyone for pulling together to put this on. So sorry that I was unable to stay and help as planned. Hope things worked out. Special thanks to Andy and Bert for stepping into the AV void in my unexpected absence. You guys are the best. Cody - sorry I was t there to help you out with the raffle - that can get crazy for sure. 

Congrats everyone!

I knew when I was talking to Karen at the front they were counting. We had over 200 people last year and it looked like there was a decent crowd there when I was there.

The vendors seemed to think this one had a bigger crowd.

Thank you everyone to make it a team effort. I thought it went pretty smooth. The numbers were a little less than last year but close.  Just looking at the crowds it looked like the Vendors might have done better overall this year than the previous year.

Thanks for the update Jim. Will be curious to see the numbers and hear from the vendors. Hopefully it worked out well for everyone.

Hours into the show, it was still hard to get to the vendor tanks.  People stacked up 2 rows deep.  I think the head count must have been higher!  Word is getting out, we gotta keep this going strong!!
