I picked up a chile rose or should I say my son did, was temped by a couple of others and would have definitely got a g.anthracina if I had seen one but didn't spot one.

Also came back with a stunning orchid mantis.

Got a acrylic enclosure for the chile rose from House of Spiders.

Olaf who shares Michael Schellers table had G anthracina slings for sale, and he pre-advertised them......... I bought 2 :D ....... also got a nice H gigas, 4 x formosa slings and a lowland P subfusca af.

It was a great show again. Thank you for Invicta for all the hard work I know it takes to put on such an event. It was lovely meeting up and having a chat with old friends and new faces :D xxx

My day almost ended in disaster when I tried to rehouse the OBT 1inch sling I bought:lol2:

My idea of fast before this was a sub adult GBB, damn an OBT can move when it wants to, the thing took off up my arm and it took me nearly 10mins to finally get it in the cricket tub :blush:

Sylvi, I was after a female subfusca, I have males needing some lurve.
Good to see you again, rather madly busy each time I saw you.

Good to see fellow mod colinm and all those that came to say hello, including lots of familiar faces.

It seems to have been a very successful show and we're already organising next year's show.

There will be a list posted on the Invicta facebook page of all the donations kindly given by the traders for the raffle and who won. And we shall have this posted on our website too. The raffle itself lasted over half an hour, there were so many prizes! We also had some nice pics up on our twitter page.

I came away with a BTS T-shirt, keyring, flower mantis (Pseudocreobotra wahlbergi) and some cockroach (Opisthioplatia orientalis) for my winning raffle tickets.
5 blocks of coir - £5!
150 tubs from HoS
a whip scorpion (Phrynus marginemaculatus) gift, thanks Michael O
2 x MM P. irminia
2 x Gold H. incei from Olaff
2 x MM P. regalis
Adult female and 2 x males plus lots of eggs Diapherodes gigantea
I'm sure there's more, but obviously I was selling, still need to sort it all out.

Also great fun at the restaurant and hotel bar the night before, some great friendly people out there!

EDIT: I've added the scientific names and I have the additional 5 x L. parahybana - 76 of these were donated to me for free, so I asked for 50p each and made £36 for the Phillipine Disaster Fund.

This year it seems our further travelled visitors from the UK was a man from Dundee, Letham in Angus, Scotland.
Obviously we had dealers from Belgium, France and Germany but Thorsten Stein seems to have been the furthest travelled visitor who came all the way from Lelystad, the Netherlands, a litle further than Mark Chilvers from Holland.

:D It was Olaf's subfusca, it too was pre-advertised. I went looking for it, spent most of the day popping back and forth to admire it and then talked myself into not having it. Then right at the very end with persuasion from Linda and Mel, Linda batted her eyelashes at Olaf, the price took a 25% tumble and she was mine :flrt:

Thank you Linda and Mel x
