well we have 2 possible locations for todays meeting. i know everyone hates
me for speaking up and saying what i perceive. but you read the information
i have.


Good Day,

We have two meetings planned for June. One is planned for June 10th in
Old Lyme CT. At this meeting we will try to line up some collecting
localities in CT. We will look to have CT members head possible
collecting trips in their state. There may be fish up for auction at
this meeting, along with the usual door prizes, etc. Refreshments will
be served.

Our second meeting, planned for June 24th, will be held in MA. We are
working on booking a meeting spot at the Buttonwood Park Zoo in New
Bedford. We would like to have a behind-the-scenes tour of their
aquatics building, and then head off to collect. If we cannot book the
zoo, our meeting will be held again in Dighton at the Bristol County
Natural History Center (sight of former NANFA meetings). From there we
will head off collecting.

Keep your eyes on the mailbox for the meeting announcements.

i have the letter sent to me. i opened that today and it ONLY talks about
the June 10 meeting in connecticut. NO mention at all about todays meeting.

I checked all the nanfa emails for the last month and find NO mention of
where the meeting will be. this is some 75 miles or more from my house and
i dont see how i can drive around looking for people so i guess I will not
be able to attend. this should make some people happy.
