Here are photos of raffle and club table taken early Saturday during setup:

Since hobby club was only event on Saturday, we set out magazines on one of the hallway tables for people to grab. It was the day after early voting, so general public was dropping in looking for early voting. We think they took copies (YIPPEE!) and education in people's hands is always great!! If you missed these magazines at Fall Frag Swap, then please check with your local fish store here in the DFW area.
