    I get so happy reading the posts and looking at the pictures on sphynx lair. The members here are so great. The kitties here are also pure greatness. So why not meet up say in Vegas or Florida for a sphynx convention. I'd love to meet Maggie, Sophie, Piglet, ...... Leonidas, Nelson, Nelson's brothers and sisters (and the rest). I think that would be so cool.

    That is a good idea but there is no way I can go to the east coast.
    I do not even do cat shows that are more then 3 hours away right now.
    I might be able to come to Vegas though.

    That's definitely a cool idea. We need divisions though we're so spread out.

    But it sounds like a good idea though.

      I'd love to meet everybody--but my crew would be staying home--unless of course, we do it in Michigan. But I would go to a Sphynxlair Convention in Vegas (my first choice) or Florida. Vegas is my first choice because they always have some kind of reduced airfare thing going on. (And I love to play Black Jack!)

      Vegas would work better for me, too....there are always special flight fares from Colorado Springs or Denver to Vegas. But it would still be a costly trip with airfare, cabin fee to carry our pet onboard the plane, hotel costs, etc. If we could work out some sort of package deal, that'll be more economical.

      Vegas is my first choice also.
      I need a cat sitter also.
      Of course we can do a meet when there is a cat show and you can all come to the show.

      I agree, Vegas always seems to have airfare sales. I've always wanted to visit Vegas, but would leave my babies at home. That would be soooo much fun!!!!

      Heck yes, I live in Florida...my vote would be VEGAS. But, if I went there, sorry kitties, you're staying home. :LOL: Vegas is too much fun to be spending it in a hotel room with the cats!

      Plus, Helen is the only one of my gang that would be old enough in human years to enter the casinos. We all know she parties a little too much and I don't want to have to babysit, LOL. Then again, at least I wouldn't have to worry about holding her hair for her while she's puking! :LOL: :Wink:
