Thanks to a couple of friends, I am now aware of the location of the 2022 AKA National Convention – Louisville, KY.
My first thought was – ‘Hey I have never been there!” My second one was what I understand is going to happen. As I understand this, it will be a joint convention held in conjunction with ACA and ALA. WOW! What a great weekend that could be. After all, I keep some Goodeids and every now and then think about certain Cichlids … just need to prepare for whatever comes home with me. But I have plenty of time to get ready.
I mentioned this to my wife and her comment was simply “I have never been there” and the stare told me, she was planning to go with me *laugh*. So much for an “ol’ boys” weekend. That’s not to say there will not be a few beers tipped back and some relaxed discussions with old and new friends.
I can imagine what types of collecting trips will be available – Natives and Killies. That’s a good thing so long as I am back to full leg health.
I expect a couple of my UNYKA friends will join me either in the car for the trip, or possibly meet me there – so that makes it so much better.
