Hey everyone!

The California Turtle & Tortoise Club's Chino Valley Chapter meets every 3rd Friday of the month in Chino. Our first meeting of the new year will be held this Friday January 17th at 7:30 pm.

I'm pleased to announce that Tom (TFO's Tom) will be our guest speaker! He is presenting his information with us about how to prevent pyramiding in Sulcata and Leopard Tortoises.

Please come to the meeting and show him your support!!! Meet Tom in person and learn more details about how to implement the hot and humid method.

It will be a great time!

Here are some links for more information:

Aww, wish I could go! This silly flu has me down for the count. Hope it goes GREAT!

(I really need to suck it up and join CTTC!! I seem to recall the IE chapter meeting less than 2 miles from where I work, so that's just a bad case of procrastination...)

Tom's presentation was phenomenal! Those of you who are out of our are area should be jealous. Those of you in our area, and missed it, should be ashamed(kidding).

Really though, the audience was in rapt attention, Tom could have talked a couple more hours and I doubt anyone would have moved. Question and answer period after his talk could have gone on indefinitely.

We did not know who was going to be speaking at the meeting last night, and we almost blew it off, but we went and even took our 4 month old sully!

Tom is doing stuff that, along with others, will benefit tortoises for generations. We are very lucky he takes the time to share with us on this forum. My tort and I are extremely thankful that when I desperately needed advice and instruction(I knew nothing), Tom's care sheets walked us through the things needed to raise a healthy hatchling sulcata.

Tom, put me on the list for a signed copy of the book, as soon as it is written. It needs to be done. We really enjoyed the presentation, Thank You so very much, Dave & Wendy.

Oh man, I am jealous. If I had know in enough time to have flown out there, I would have, I too really want the book to be written. I sure hope all the members that were there took it too heart what Tom said and if not already, will immediately change what it is they are doing wrong. Glad it went good, I knew it would. He is interesting to talk and listen too, even about things other then tortoises:D

Thanks to this forum and a top secret informant😬, i knew Tom was speaking and really looked forward to it.
It was nothing short of a privilege to have the opportunity to meet Tom and hear what he had to say. I see Tom as a very dedicated, intelligent and humble man, who is dedicated to the cause of the tortoise. He is well traveled throughout the world and gathers important data from the natural environment of some of these tortoises.
Thank you, Tom for taking the time to come to Chino!
Thank you, Heather, for asking him.
