This is my own opinion but there are damn few fish judges (no I don't consider myself one of those) that are truly qualified in my opinion to judge the reptiles but unfortunately that is the status quo.   I wish the NTA would reconsider having an experienced qualified reptile judge decide the outcome of the show like it once was.  A National and North American Champion truly deserves this.  

I am looking forward to seeing everyone at 7 springs.   It should be a good time for most--lol.

There are usually not many reptiles at shows, and another specialty judge is another expense.  Flights, room, food,  judge fee etc....   I'm not sure if bringing in a reptile judge would draw ENOUGH people in to pay for it.    That is probably the main reason. 

That makes sense.

But that is 2,000 miles one way.

If I fly, I've never shipped mounts to a show before.

AND A QUESTION, how many reptiles at last year's PA Show?

I do know that some shows have more reptiles than fish.

So why not have a REPTILE JUDGE come in and judge reptiles.....AND while he is there, judge the fish?  What's the difference?  Reptile people spend just as much time & effort mounting and competing with their reptiles as the fish heads.

Reptile dysfunction.

Kerby, there are quite a few reptiles at the PTA show. I know between matt and myself we had probably 8 last year and another 6-8 from other competitors, so it is getting more crowded every year. thats a good thing, good ole competition wether you win or lose only makes you better.

Because we get a lot more fish than reptiles.  But if you guys keep coming and getting more people interested, who knows what might happen next year.
