Hi Everyone.....This past Sunday as many of you may know the Orange County
Chapter of the Calif. Turtle and Tortoise Club had a Live Turtle & Tortoise
Show.
We want to Thank each of you who had a part in the success of this
show...whether you exhibited, volunteered, came to the show? Sent the info
to family, friends, members of groups/clubs you belong to or ??
The show was a phenomenal success!! We counted 1818 people coming through
the doors of the center in just 5 hours!!
This did however caused an unforeseen problem. We were proud to advertise
we were wheelchair friendly. Last year we were and also stroller friendly
as well. However...within the first hour we no longer were as over 380
people had went through the doors. We are Very Sorry for this unforeseen
problem and is top priority to correct next year!
Everyone had a great time and there was never a dull moment. We have lots
to work with for next years show on Sunday Aug. 17, 2014. YES....we have
the date already set!
Again...Thank you so very much for your support of this event in whatever
way you were able to help.
Do you have suggestions? Comments? Or something you would like to say to
help us with next years show? Please feel free to contact us and let us
know!
If we don't hear the good and the bad....we don't know what to work on.
Our shelled ones thank you as well and appreciate your support!
Take care everyone,
Sharon
