    Attention Taxidermy Suppliers, Free Tables for 2007!!!

    The New England Association of Taxidermists (NEAT) Convention 2007 is scheduled for June 8, 9, and 10, 2007. We are working through some new ideas and have decided to continue our offer to provide FREE space for suppliers interested in attending our show. We were fortunate enough to fill our supplier room in 2006 which added to the enjoyment of all attending NEAT members. Thanks for the feedback everyone!

    Please don't hesitate a single moment to get in touch with us. Tables are going quick! Please email NEAT Secretary, Judy Bragg at [email protected] with your reservation today!

    We hope to see you there
