Hey Gang, a quick heads up.

Just in case you all are around these parts this weekend, the Tampa club is having their annual fossil show for the public at the Fairgrounds Saturday and Sunday. I'm headed there today to help setup. Aside from a good number of dealers and other stuff going on, they usually have 20 or so displays from club members collections and I'm throwing some stuff together to put into one of them.

Looks like the fairgrounds will have other things going on this weekend as well. home improvements, guns, reptiles as well.

Chris,

Yes, that is a great show. I've been lucky to go a few times (including last year) in the several years. I have always found a good deal on some fossils and a book or two. Nice people behind that show too. I'm going to have to miss it this time.

Thanks guys! As I was telling Tom in another post I was out there Friday to help setup and will be back later today. Lots of dealers had lots of good stuff going up. No touching though!

Members were just beginning to setup cases. Here's mine, pretty much the same as last year but decided to throw a couple more plants in it this time.

Thanks, Chris! I know your time was limited, and I appreciate your taking the time to take all these pictures.

Chas, Marco sr and Jeff. Thanks guys, my pleasure!. Good group to be with. I'd recommend everyone join a local or regional club if one is available. Besides meeting like minded fossil collecting folks and seeing their finds the clubs they usually have regular sponsored trips that get you into places that otherwise you only see photos of.

Regards, Chris
