Images from MACNA XIX

I have setup an album in the photo gallery for MACNA XIX images. I am putting allot of images up there myself right now that I took at the exhibit hall. I haven't had a chance to edit them or resize them so if you click to get a full size image they will be quite large but hey thats the best part.

Some of the tanks here in the exhibit hall are awesome and I have to say the 6'+ skimmers are quite a site.

I took a few videos but I will need to upload them somewhere after I resize them.

Wait till I tell you that next year it will be in Atlanta, GA. Oh and it will be held right across the street from the Georga Aquarium. Oh and the Gala bash on Sat night will be IN the Georgia Aquarium...

http://www.macnaxx.com

Look for more information on that site as well as being posted on this site as it develops.

That is fantastic! How exciting! We are only 8 hours from there, couldn't be any better unless it was in Orlando.

Its 8 hours and some change from me as well. Im thinking of driving half way on Thursday night and then the rest on Friday for the event. But then again at 8 hours im thinking of flying as well. With the price of gas at some point the milage becomes just as costly to drive than fly. I think its further than 8 hours but its not to much cheaper to drive.

The idea of 8+ hours in the car or just under 3 in the air is intreaging.

So far I have meet a good half dozen members today alone. I have asked a few of them to post about the sessions for those that couldnt make it.

Ok, we are settled, we are definately going to next years. We don't want to hassle with flying since we are so close and if I decide to pick up something while I am there I can put it in a cooler with some small ice packs. Couple of questions. When does the rooms start filling up and selling out? Why does the date say 2007? Is it for that same date but 2008? TIA.

If I heard correctly at the dinner (it was noisy!) the dates for MACNA XX will be September 5-7, 2008. The early bird special for individual registration is $89, but I don't know how long that price will be in effect. After a certain date, the price will go up.

The early bird price is good till the end of the month as I have been told. Who knows about when the hotel will sell out although its the tallest hotel in the eastern hemisphere so I doubt it will be for a while if it does sell out.

Well the conference is about to close. I will remain for the raffle to see all the stash people come away with. To imagen you can walk away with a 100+ gal complete setup.

The zero edge tanks look awesome but I have to ask about the functionality as far as a long term setup since the water flows on both sides of the tank walls but it does look nice on a show room floor.
