Hi everyone - in 2011 we will hold our next TONMOCON (our fourth!) -- and it's time for me to start thinking about when and where.

View these links to learn about past TONMOCONs.

I've added a poll which is multiple choice. Please select all places where you think you'd be able to attend.

This is a PUBLIC POLL, meaning your username will display next to your choice(s).

Thoughts, ideas, dreams about TONMOCON IV? Post them here!

PICK MARYLAND!!! Id go 100% in Maryland. Possibley in New England. Is any date set for tonmocon?

edit* If you do pick Maryland, you could always have tonmocon at the national aquarium (Washington DC or Baltimore) Tickets are $8 at DC and like $24 At Baltimore.

Vlaardingen, Ancient Herring Capitol of the World? I mean, we have a Fishery Museum that has a 100 gallon tank with dogfish, skate, seabass and turbot?

*le sigh*

Oh well, I guess it'll be the States, then :wink:

Somewhere with a real airport, aka direct flights. My preferences go Baltimore, Boston, Seattle.

getting to see live turbot? cool, but still not worth the plane ticket

Jean has a point unfortuantely, I have not won the lottery to charter a plane or 10 for all the rest of us (I will continue to try though)

I have an image for you guys. I am falconer and when you go to falconry meets(same as tonomcon) you put you bird out on a perch in area with all the other falconers birds. Its called a weather yard, its for the birds to get some sun. Now what if at the next tonmocon we get a giant aquarium and put all of our octos in there to show off. That would be cool.
