You don't have to be from Texas to join the IBC. lol It seems like we have a lot of members from Texas, I can't wait to get down there. Texas should be known as the betta state. lol
Matt, I think voting ends in June. I had trouble with my ballot but got it sent finally.

I think voting actually ends during Convention.

As far as attending shows and NOT being a member...you may attend ANY show you wish too!!! I am trying to find a GOOD/Cheap video camera so I can video an entire show. Shows take a LOT of work and I think people that have never gotten the chance to see one from start to finish don't really realize how much hard work goes into one. :D

shows are open to all, i think you can see the show places and dates on ibcbettas.org and you can enter fish in shows for one show season without joining the IBC

Yesterday I joined the IBC. For a long time I had reservations about doing this because there are no shows anywhere close to me and I have some issues with policy positions. When IBC issues were brought up at this forum I was told this was not the place to discuss. Very happy to see members open to talking about things. I have great respect for members in this thread and you convinced me to take a hard look. So to me the IBC is now worth it. Very much looking forward to helping to make things better from the inside and voting for the right people with the right attitude. Thanks for giving me the push needed to join.

Proud IBC member

Glad you did join. Like most things, it is not perfect. But I think we do have a good heart.. just different ideas on how to proceed. And yes, please read the platforms of all those running and vote. I am hoping we get more involved in offering ideas and man power to make it an org people enjoy being part of, even if they do not show.

And outside of here and the IBC forum/emails.. please feel free to contact me personally about anything. Some discussions are really good to have in forums like this so many can benefit from the info. But other things you might prefer a more private discussion. I'm always available. And that goes to every one.

I renewed mine yesterday.
Do I think it is worth it?
From what I learned on here and through the IBC,these two go together like Peanut Butter and Jelly!!
I am finally using my right hand a little better after the surgery and have some things to get caught up on.
Tried typing a few times with my left hand-no go!!!
Setsuna,I will get in touch with you in a few.
