| We are now pleased to confirm that our April meeting will be held on 21st April, with the doors opening to the public at 12 noon. Table holders will be given access well before this time to get set up, we will notify folks of the time from which they can enter to set up at the time of booking.
We're tweaking things a bit this year too. Rather than just the one room we will be using 2 very slightly smaller ones this year, with plenty of signs up to show folks where to go etc within the venue. There will also be an ongoing demo through most of the event on viv decortating techniques, with the current plant been to do one more suited to tree frogs and a 2nd aimed at oophage pumilio. We'll post more details about this on the BAKS site closer to the time.
Now is the time to start booking your tables folks for any surplus captive bread amphibians, non-venomous invertebrates (including aquatic ones), live foods or dry goods sales. Remember, we scrapped table fees in favour of a new deposit system, so now you just need to join BAKS to be eligible for a table (please note that2012 memberships will not be valid for 2013 meetings however). Please note though that we do ask that folks let us know what they will be selling at the time of booking so that we can publicise this information.
Joining BAKS is very easy to do, you can either pay one of our 2 subscription options online, or sign up on the door (please note that there will be a £1 premium charged for joining on the door). Also, in addition to entrance to 1 or 2 meetings per year (depending on the subs option you chose) you will also receive access to our newsletters earlier than none paying members, and access to a members only area on our forums.
We will also be holding our free prize draw for all subs paying members who attend once again, with a prize supplied by our sponsors Arcadia Reptile, and possibly prizes supplied by our other sponsors at Repti-Liscious. Last year one lucky member walked away with an Arcadia Reptile 60cm T5HO viv canopy!!
More information is available on our website at B.A.K.S.
