I think most organisations are anti, mass gatherings of tortoises, especially now there is such a lot of herpes and crypto around. Even with good hygiene, the risks are high. I know intentions are good, but I always advise people with my babies not to go to events where there are several other tortoises present and would never attend one with my own. I think it would be a better idea for vets to offer a voucher so that people can visit the surgery at their own convenience where risks would be a lot lower, as there are no guaranteed hand cleansers etc that will kill the chelonian herpes virus or cryptosporidium  ;)  Just my thoughts of course ;)
