Ok, so the conference isn't until September, but they extended the cheap registrations (until yesterday). Although a dear friend of mine from college is getting married that same weekend in Boston, husband (who hasn't attended a wedding that he hadn't been in!) was adding plenty of pressure to ditch the wedding and head to Pittsburgh instead. It will be our first one since Louisville.

So we'll see at least some of you there!
Just had to share. :)

I am going to be setting up a few experiments in my greenhouse. One on measuring the growth rates of various digitate SPS corals comparing how they are mounted. One on dosing Xenia with and without iodine. And the last one whether or not you should use coral dips prophylactically.

Kewl... I likely can't go to MACNA but Dana usually pays me a visit when he's on the mainland (he comes this way to visit his family)... and he always surprises me.... now I have a heads up!

(He dropped in on me in late Feb or early March...)

Wish I could get to MACNA - but my tether from the shop isn't that long.

We already have over 500 individuals committed to attend this year and still have 5 months to sign up more people. Act fast to attend the largest marine aquarist educational conference, trade show, and party in the US!

Daniell:

Mel and I will be there, as well as Tony from the ARC. Mel's Dad lives in Aliquippa (just across the interstate past Moon Township from downtown Pittsburg), and her grandparents live in Waynsburg (about an hour away near Washington, PA), so we will probably take the week and spend it visiting as well as enjoying the MACNA programs.

Steven: I see that NOAA is going to be an exhibitor, who will be there for their table?
