    Next MACNA September 14-16, 2007 in Pittsburgh, PA

    I wanted to let you all know that the next MACNA is going to be held in Pittsburgh. This should be a great opportunity to see some fabulous speakers, new and interesting products, rare and unusual livestock, and to hang out with fellow fish geeks from all over the world.

    Registration for the full show, including the Friday night reception and Saturday banquet, is only $75! But, this price will only last until the end of the month, so register now to lock in this great price.

    We have a number of excellent speakers already confirmed and are aggressively working on others. Here is a current listing:

    Eric Borneman
    Anthony Calfo
    Dr. Bruce Carlson
    Dr. Stan Dannemiller
    Helmet Debelius
    James Fatherree
    Lee Goldman
    Ron Hessing
    Kelly Jedlicki
    Dr. Sanjay Joshi
    Daniel Knop
    Dr. Frank Marini
    Mike Paletta
    Steven Pro
    Dr. Ron Shimek
    Dr. Rob Toonen

    Holy sh@#@ I was just gonna start this post and here it is!!!! Everyone lets go!!! We can car pool or not. It is about 5.5 hr ride from my house via tpk-78-tpk. Looks like it is Monroeville which is outside of Pittsburgh to the east - so ya don't even have to drive into town. Monroeville is like the shopping area.

    Yes, the conference is in Monroeville and is about 1 mile right off the PA Turnpike. It is a very easy drive.

    We were informed that PayPal was performing some upgrades this weekend to their merchant account software, so some people were unable to register. So, we have extended the $75 early bird discount rate until 10/9/2006!

    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!

    Southwest Airlines has labeled Pittsburgh a "Featured Destination" which makes some flights to MACNA pretty cheap right now.

    Be sure to purchase your tickets to MACNA 19 before the end of the month to beat the price increase.
