Ohio Cichlid Association Extravaganza 2015
|Ohio||US||The Extravaganza, commonly known as "The OCA", is a well-regarded and well-attended 3-day event, known for its combination of world-class speakers, laid back atmosphere and reasonable price. Recent guests have included Ingo Seidel, Heinz Buescher, Juan Miguel Artigas-Azas, Ad Konings (who appears every year), Jay Stauffer, Melanie Stiassney, Felipe Cantera, Wayne Leibel and Hans-Georg Evers.
There's a large cichlid/catfish show, a very popular swap meet and speaker Meet and Greet on Saturday, and what is probably the best cichlid/catfish auction in the the US on Sunday. There's also a pizza-party/awards presentation Saturday evening, and a hospitality room with a keg and hot food both Friday and Saturday evenings, both free to paid attendees.
The event is always held the weekend before Thanksgiving at the Holiday Inn, Strongsville, Ohio (a suburb of Cleveland).
This year's speakers and topics are Ad Konings (Tanganyika), Jools Dignall (collecting in India, L-Number catfish), Ted Judy (tbd), and Heiko Bleher (Cichlids of India and the Middle East, angelfish and discus in nature).
