If you happen to not find somebody else to split with, let me know. I'm not sure, but I feel like we may be able to squeeze you in, especially if you want to spoon with Matt Knepley.

Whoooaaaa now! I got the distinct impression I was going to be sleeping on the pull out. Pull out sleepers don't have to share; it's in the by-laws somewhere. Those of you with private rooms are the spooning-enabled set... :P

Find ways for people not already interested in natives to value them.

Sorry, I need to update the website some, but I dont think Bob is totally set on presentations , but there are certainly some that he has already got agreements on... let me get on that today.  If you are interested in being a presenter (and I for one would be interested in seeing your presentation, heck I can think of a couple of different presentations I would like to see form you). contact Bob Hrabik directly @ robert.hrabik@mdc.mo.gov

Also added this Lodging Update to the Convention Page:

http://www.nanfa.org...tion/2017.shtml

 

 

 Lodging Update from our convention host:

- Our drop-dead date to fill the hotel has been graciously moved back from April 15 to May 1. (Yeah!)
- After May 1, if we have not filled all the rooms, WE LOSE OUR MONEY FOR THOSE ROOMS NOT OCCUPIED, NO REFUND. So, we better start filling those rooms people!
- While we are allowed to have up to 4 people in the hotel rooms (6 in the loft rooms), MSP does not provide rollaway beds. So, we will need to bring our own cots/bedding to be comfortable. I am okay with sleeping on a floor (it actually makes my back feel good), so I don’t care but others must be made aware of this.

yet more updates regarding the convention (also on the web):

 

Legal and License Update from our convention host:
We have vetted with the higher ups regarding rules/regs and what we and cannot do for NANFA 2017 Convention, as below:
- No special permits, nor will anyone be required to purchase a Missouri fishing license so long as the collectors (dip nets, seines, snorkeling, etc.) are part of the NANFA Convention trips and not off doing their own thing. HOWEVER, microfishers (using pole-and-line) must purchase a Missouri fishing license.
- Fish may be brought into the state from other states for the NANFA auction, and Missouri fishes may also be auctioned and transported across state lines only under the auspices of the NANFA Convention (between the dates of 8 and 13 June). Before and after that period, it will be illegal to transport fish into or take native fish from Missouri.
- Basically, we are good to go so long as we behave in a reasonable manner and respect the privledges we have been granted.

I'm officially registered.  I love the shirt logo, but I'd rather hold off for the quick dry shirt also.

Rockin' shirt, Olaf! Will definitely pick one of those bad boys up. If there is enough demand to drop the price on the quick dry I might want one, but otherwise I am down for an xl cotton!

This is Iowa Scott.  I am coming to the convention and wondering if anyone that I have roomed with in the past would like to do so again.

Wow.These are very great permissions. I think we should all be tickled with this. Good job Bob, and crew.

Is anyone camping or is everyone staying in a room? I am trying to figure out if I can actually attend a convention finally, and with camping being a much cheaper option, I'm looking that route. Only thing I'd be worried about is if I sign up to camp and bad weather rolls in I may be in for a fun night(s).
