Ok, it's official, the family and I are going to the Baltimore Aquarium June 26-June 27th. We'll definitely be there, and hope to see many other TONMO'ers there as well!

So far, it sounds like Carol and WhiteKiboko are quite probable if not definite.

I suppose festivities may depend on the turnout, but so far I figure we can spend Sat. afternoon at the aquarium, maybe go back to our rooms real quick and then meet up for dinner and a few drinks or something.

This ain't no official TONMO Convention, Melissa's got that one in control, and is coordinating that with Dr. O'Shea and some aquariums. That one should be an international event, and probably won't be happening until sometime later... as Greg says, you'll be there, or you'll be square.

For this one, if you're within striking distance of Baltimore, you really oughtta come, cause we'll definitely be looking forward to seeing you. If you're from far away, you might want to think about coming anyway... The party is what we make of it!

Well, I do think there should eventually be a TONMOcon down under... :|

Melissa's in charge of the first "official" TONMOcon event (and the rest thereafter if she's game for it...)

If you can't make it to Baltimore for this TONMO gathering, no worries, I'm sure there will be pictures aplenty... hopefully sans mugshots...

Drat, I'll be on the wrong tectonic plate for this gathering! Down under would be more feasible in June. We may have to set one up for ourselves, Jean.

Post the photos so everyone will be excited for the next party!

Monterey Bay... Monterey Bay... :heee:

Just kidding! I hope you all have fun. My wife and I are headed to the Bay Aquarium that day (the 27th of June is my birthday).

Sounds fun though!

:mrgreen: This time it's work. So who's in Hong Kong/Bangkok and where is a reasonable place for an Asian mini-Tonmo.con or birthday party?
