    So what about it, wouldn't it be good to meet all the people involved with TONMO, and to buy and sell any aquarium equipment/saltwater animals?
    If we ever have one (looking forward to going if it's arranged) make sure to try and spot someone(Me) with a green t-shirt with a NRCC logo on it.

    The TONMO.com Apparel Shop was closed a few months back, due to the fact that I was the only patron. I have a couple of good mugs and t-shirts... :smile2:

    Will keep all posted as soon as I can nail some things down... will definitely take some time though... promises to be fun! Happy to take anyone's input into consideration, so feel free to PM me if you're inclined... :wink:

    The consensus seems to be riding with Baltimore, MD...lots of local activities, etc...and Tony is happy there...
    so we have that going for us! :D
    Jeez...maybe they will do a Discovery special on us or something!!!

    Tony et al,

    I have two questions about Baltimore:

    1. How deep into the wee-hours do Baltimore's finer pubs remain open?
    2. Have Baltimore's finer pubs outlawed the awful habit of smoking?

    If the answers are "12am" and "yes," there could be trouble.

    Clem

    I live near Baltimore, and have good friends who are lifelong denizens of the place. If you give me a list of questions (including booze- and nightlife-related ones), I can certainly find the answers quickly. In fact, it would probably take less time to answer the booze-related questions than others. :P Party party!

    Would certainly be an appropriate place for a gathering, but I'm sticking w/ Baltimore Aquarium.

    Tell you what, I'll let you know when further details are available! Will take some time for this to happen. [shooing the cooks from the kitchen...] :heee:

    Bald Evil, sounds good, I'll be in touch, thanks!

    Hey Tony!

    Are you setting up a package deal? Hotel, Aquarium etc.? Will there be some sort of workshop? Should be great! I never got there cause of the blizzard last year.

    Also, any word on your trip to the shore yet?

    Shore trip... no word on that one yet (watch that thread in the Supporters forum for updates :wink: ) I'll definitely let you know...

    As for agenda and group rates, I'm thinking about all of these things, but nothing ready to announce at this time.

    As I work for the CANCER COUNCIL here in Victoria, I vote for a NON-SMOKING venue every time....

    I'll be in Canada September/October next year - can you hold the convention then?
