Adikularia Haven – Anib Dos

The Adikularia Haven’s 2nd anniversary celebration called “Anib Dos” was another massive success. Held in the very nice Artan Garden Resort in Novaliches (Quezon City), last night’s record-breaking event actually surpassed the first one in most levels.

As far as I can remember, more food was served to feed the almost (or more than) 200 registered (and non-registered) attendees. A little short in rice but it still carried on smoothly when a McDonald’s delivery guy arrived with a bag of carbs.

Booze? It was over-flowing and there was more than enough for everyone. The only problem was nobody brought a bottle opener! A few Mcgyvers just improvised with spoons, forks, bottle caps, and even their teeth.

(Nobody was harmed while opening the bottles and no tooth fell off.)

There were also fun games (AH style) played like:

1) The one involving ladies and Superworms.

2) The one involving men and Superworms.

5) Tarantula sexing, species identification, and the non-stop raffle.

Everybody actually went home with a prize (prizes for most). “Souvenirs” as you may call it. One of the remarkable things about AH and Anib Dos is the unity and the unselfish character that everyone has. The food, the booze, the prizes, and the free stuff came from the pledges that members sincerely gave: all for fun and the camaraderie of the entire society. There was also the traditional giving of awards for different categories like Breeder of the Year, Best New Member, etc.

The group that was founded by three “just curious” individuals has hundreds of affiliates now and has become well-known (in the hobby circle) and respected.  I was quite delighted to see old and new faces in the event. AH is definitely growing.

There were x.0.0.

Once again, I would like to congratulate Adikularia Haven (especially the moderators) for making another memorable event happen. I hope that the group will continue to promote the hobby positively and maintain the precious value of our beloved Arachnid pets.
