I'm locking most other threads here (except the MBARI one, and t-shirts), since we're in the home stretch.

Some logistics -- if you haven't yet registered, or want to pay at the door, please email me asap so I know what to expect.

The agenda is just about finalized. Please arrive no later than 9:30am.

As you'll see in the MBARI thread, some folks are getting together for a tour there. Turns out I'll not be part of that, but look forward to the Convention on Saturday, and the aquarium on Sunday.

Any lingering questions, please post them here!

np -- and for all you folks who can't make it -- I'll be bringing a video camera which I can convert to digital, so I hope to get a couple / few clips for posting later.

Hi Eric

Friday - The tour of MBARI is the only planned activity. I will post the meeting point for the ride to MBARI for the one pm tour. For the three pm tour, driving, car pooling and the bus are the transportation options. People will break off into smaller groups and eat dinner together after that.

Saturday - see the agenda, science talks all day. We have reserved the patio at the Crown and Anchor that evening. All are welcome! Everyone is responsible for their own bill that night.

Sunday - Monterey Bay Aquarium - meet at the group entrance of the aquarium to enter at 9:30. Everyone will be given a voucher to pay the group admission rate at any time between Saturday and Monday. If you would prefer to sleep in or to go another time, that is up to you. Those who buy tickets with their hotel reservation will not need the voucher and those tickets are good for two consecutive days!

See you in Monterey!

Melissa

Cool, thx for the update, Melissa. For you dancers/music listeners, check out Sly McFly's and the Cibo Ristorante. I've been looking at the MOnterey Weekly for weeks in anticipation. :)

How about the arctic icecap? We can go diving and check out them new species.

Actually, Baltimore would be remarkably convenient for me next year. My sister is moving there next month. And with Atlantic City so close, I might be able to make the trip pay for itself. 8-)
