Here are just several pictures from MACNA XVIII which was held in Houston, TX last weekend. This event was hosted by Marsh Reef and it is estimated that more than 1,200 people attended the event.

It was wonderful. Really great experience. Not to mention, Euro-reef announced at the gala saturday night that they were donating 55 protein skimmers for the raffle. Of course, I bought some tickets!

Bob and I each one one!

In my opinion, this was the best MACNA I've attended, but I've only attended the last 3: wonderful presentations, smooth conference, lots of vendors with some giving away stuff, lots of wonderful raffle items :D and Sanjay Joshi received the MASNA Award (applause)!

I also finally got to meet several folks in person that I've corresponded with heavily over the few years as well as caught up with some old aquaintances. And I got to have several nice 1:1 chats with some of the speakers.

The only negative was that I didn't get to see all of the presentations and the lack of sleep.

If you can possibly swing it, the next MACNA will be next in Pittsburg on Sept 14-17 (Fri-Sun) in 2007. Register between now thru Sept 30 at and attend the entire 3-day conference for just $75! That's 50% off the regular $150 full registration.

Maybe I'll get to say more about the conference at our Oct 10 meeting.

We are putting in a bid for 2008, MACNA XX

And since it's MACNA XX, we're going to have it sponsored by Dos Equis... :D

(Actually- Steve had the idea- I thought it was pretty funny)
