The convention was very agitated with the presence of hundreds
of collectors. The hotel was quite nice and located near the entrance
of Sanibel Island.
|COA 2005 - Punta Rassa, Fort Myers - Florida
Jose received a "forced" invitation (J) from Harry Lee
to put together a presentation on Brazilian shells, (which was
prepared on PowerPoint by Carlos Henckes). He showed several new
species and comparisons of Caribbean and Brazilian fauna.
We visited again the fantastic Bailey-Matthews Museum in Sanibel,
having a special attention from Dr. Jose Leal.
And of course the Bourse was fantastic! Dealers from all over
the world participated and lots of collectors were gathered at
the entrance waiting until the doors were opened.
COA 2006 will be in Mobile, Alabama (see some info on the town
). I hope to see some of you there!
