NEC: March 16-18th
Hi all,

I just wanted to remind everyone the the annual NEC Convention will be held March 16-18th, at the Marriott in Farmington, Ct. Of particular interest to aquatic gardeners is the AGA discussion on Friday for which the guest speaker is well known and highly experienced aquarist Scott Heiber. The AGA meeting is from 2-4:00pm and there is no cost to attend this event. This is certainly something not to miss.

The remaining events on Friday and Saturday require a registration fee to attend, but the money is certainly worth is as the speakers are always first class. This year has aquarium fish related speakers covering Project Piaba, Collecting in Uruguay, Discus, Cichlids, Guppies, Marine Fish, Loricarids and Killiefish. As a non-fish person I still find these talks wonderful and highly informative.

Saturday also has two additional attractions for the planted tank enthusiast. From 3-4:15pm Jeff Senske will present and from 4:15-5:15PM Jeff will conduct an Aquascaping Demonstration. You won't want to miss this. On Sunday, there is a huge auction of goods, rare fish and aquatic plants. I also *believe* the aquascaped tank Jeff will setup is to be auctioned!

To find more info about the NEC, directions, official speaker list, etc:

Myself and several other NEAPS members will be there for the entire Conference. It is a great experience that you won't want to miss. It is also the only event/meeting the will happen for NEAPS members in March, so get your plant fix in while you can. (April will find us back at the Lutz in Manchester).

Hope to see you all there!

I wish I could go to the AGA meeting, but it's looking like I won't be able to due to lack of a ride.
What sucks is I go to CT every 3 or so months to visit family and would be going right by, but they're busy, so I'm going the week after. :(
So those who are doing take lots of pics. Also if anyone knows of good LFSs in CT let me know.

That weekend's not a total loss though, I'm definately going to a local water garden place (Chester Hollow Water Gardens)that is having a grand reopening and I have a coupon for a free butterfly koi!

Hopefully I'll see you guys at the april meeting.
