We encourage you to ride with friends and rent large vehicles, which will make carpooling to collecting sites much easier. We’ve set up an area specifically for this on the NANFA Forum > NANFA Convention 2007 > RoomMates and Ride Sharing. Clarion has a free airport shuttle so not everyone will need their own car.

I was wondering about that too it seems last year registration was set up well in advance and I hadn't seen it officially anywhere but maybe I missed it too.

"Spouse and children 12+ (includes dinner banquet): $30"
Is this $30 per person for spouse and children, or does $30 total get them all in?

This is per person. The banquet generally costs $15-20 per person. This $30 is basically a break even/slight loss cost to encourage spouses and children to come along.

Is the $35.00 rate for spouses include the entire weekend of fishy activity, including the collecting trips? It's up in the air if the wifey can go or will go, but just want to be sure on the details. If she goes she may rather not do fish related, but perhaps meet and hangout with some other Fish Heads wives. Also, do I need to be a member of NANFA to attend? Thanks in advance. Ted

The $35 is for the full convention. You do not have to be a member to attend.
