NANFAcon2020 has officially been awarded to Columbia, South Carolina. March 19-22, 2020 will be the dates. More details will follow as the hosts solidify their plans. There will be a banquet, an auction, speakers, and while the event will be based out of Columbia, SC there will be field trips all over the state!

Yee Hah!  That was the location of my first NANFAcon in 2004!  It's two weeks after our Raleigh Aquar Soc weekend; I will play it up and hopefully get some more RAS folks to come to NANFA.

I have a lot of good memories of this convention back in 2004.

I was just looking on NANFA's .org website, past conventions, and found an account i had written of he adventure.

Great memories.

Here is the shirt we did from 2004.

Sold out a long time ago.

Might be interesting to modify it and do another printing for 2020.

Josh, bring the Arrow Press!

 

I need to reread that trip report, Casper.  Every once in a while I like going back through the list of previous conventions to relive what I wasn't even there for!

 

 

Thanks for the memories!  Let's go re-live some ...

 

 

 

And make some more!

looking forward to a revisit, as Columbia SC was my first NANFA Convention as well.  Add to that I'll be officially fully retired and just returning from a January expedition to Peru. So many folks I met at that first convention I now consider as great friends.
