The British Tarantula Society expo 2019 – what a mental weekend

If you are debating going to one of these shows or missed this years expo.. check out these vids. Crazy times!

BTS lectures are fast approaching

The annual British Tarantula Society lectures, held at the Aztec hotel in Bristol, are fast approaching and I am starting to get excited. The 10th of March can’t come quick enough.

If you have never been (or never knew it happened) I can honestly say that it is the best tarantula event of the year, second only to the BTS expo in May.

Last year was a good one in particular – I thoroughly enjoyed Richard Gallon’s lecture on theraphosid taxonomy (I know, not for everyone) and Guy/Paul’s lecture on documenting tarantula spiders in the field.

The after lecture dinner was broken up by Andrew Smith documentary on the history of the BTS and it was fun seeing the pics of expo’s past…. even if I did pop up in a couple of them and cringe (it’s never good seeing yourself on film from nearly a decade ago)

I will post a full review of this year’s lecture once I get home and my hangover has passed.

We “warmed the hoose” well!

About six weeks ago I sent out a facebook event invitation to come and help us christen the new house

“There is a new hoose that needs a party.

Bring yourselves and whatever you need to bring…. There will be beer and BBQ….. we may even cater for Vegans as long as you dont talk about it, you boring fucks!….. jokes – no Vegans! (jokes… or am I?)

People that are travelling are welcome to stay, there are sofas and a spare room in predatororprey.online HQ – arachnophobes may be fucked.

not really sellling this well but it will be a riiot. Musicians bring your shit.

Many loves,

Gar, Claire, Ivans, Aly and the animals”

 

It got messy quickly
