A few updates…

I hope all H&DAS members are enjoying these milder days of summer.  But on those hot days that are likely to come, have a look at some of the newer social media features we have added for your enjoyment:

  • The forum is now Facebook enabled.  If you already have a forum account, go ahead and link your Facebook account under profile settings.  If you are new to the discussion forum, save yourself some time by just logging in by clicking the Connect to Facebook button.  The H&DAS forum is the official place for community support and news about H&DAS happenings and members.
  • Our gallery is upgrading to use Flickr. In the coming weeks, photos of Auctions, Shows, trips, and Home Shows will still be available on the website, but they will be stored in our Flickr Photostream.  As a special feature for members, photos can now be shared easily to our Flickr Group.  So get out your cameras, log in to Flickr, and start sharing those great pictures!
  • Last, for those Plussers, a Google+ page is set up as yet another place to catch the H&DAS news.  

Plug in, connect your wireless, tap in to what is available from H&DAS this summer!

February Speaker

What is a Ball Python you ask?

Not too big, not too small, non venomous, a gentle disposition, and with the limitless colors and patterns being produced each year, it’s almost overwhelming trying to imagine what the diverse variations will be developed into.

We have been keeping Reptlies for over a decade now, and the Ball Python phenomenon has grown into a thriving industry.

Join me on the 14th of February for a Q & A on these fascinating snakes.

Spring Auction – Same venue, different day!

The Spring Auction is approaching, and we are gearing up!

This year, the auction will take place Saturday (NOT Sunday), March 17 at the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 551.

In addition to the change from a Sunday to the Saturday, we want to remind you of a few differences from our previous auctions:

  • with HST in effect, there will be no sales tax charged
  • the auction (and all foreseeable auctions in the future) is CASH only
  • we now accept lightly used equipment, including tanks up to 40 gal (if you can’t carry it in by yourself, don’t bring it!).  All equipment must be in working order

For more details, check out our Spring Auction page.  Don’t forget to get your seller’s number in advance by contacting Albert (avanmont@shaw.ca).
