Oscar, these events are friendly get togethers that have one thing in common, Discus. I have quite a few hobbies, but I always make time to attend these NEDA meetings, they're worth the ride!

I'm giddy just thinking about seeing everyone again!

Oscar, our NEDA meetings are attended by hobbyists thru out the North east and often from places as far as Canada, Tenn ,Chicago etc. Its a chance to socialize with Hobbyists with similar interests, learn from each other and have a great time. It also serves as a way to get past online personas and actually get to know the person behind the name..We've been holding these get togethers for about 10 years now, several times a year.

If you want to really get a feel for what goes on, take a look at some of the past years meetings...http://forum.simplydiscus.com/forumdisplay.php?189-The-Northeast-Discus-Association-%28NEDA%29

better yet... join us and see first hand.:)
