Hello Bill; There are a few questions that have been asked about the classes in the show but as of yet no one is answering the questions, they are under comments on the main convention page. I wish to show fish at the convention but until I get answers i won't be showing. I don't know if you can assist with this or not but maybe you could steer the questions to the right person. Thanks is advance.

I have already booked my room and paid my convention registration fee for the weekend

I have also posted some questions regarding the show on the DRAS forum ...

Looking forward to meeting people all weekend,
including at the Sunday auction which is open to everyone,
not just those registered for the convention

Hello Zenin; The questions you asked have been answered on the convention site, but there is no show entry forms, tank tags, auction forms or auction rules as of yet. See you there. Thanks BillD for getting things rolling.
