Well, I promised Tony that the major Tonomcon II stuff would premiere into the begining of the New Year, so here goes: MOTE Marine Labs in Sarasota Florida, June 23-24 of 2007, we've got Nancy on Octopus Care, me on cephs in the arts/Cthulhu, Skot Olson showing-off his art, some bad-ass ceph racing - Greg, you in on this? - hopefully some attendance by giant plushy sea monsters - anybody got an in with John Forsythe from NRCC? Apply your influence now, please (contact me and I'll do the naggging); still looking to nail-down James B. Wood, the goodly Dr. SOS (who knows, but maybe if he can - administration work sucks like an architeuthis sucker - but we all know he'd like to and will understand if he can't), want to grab Kevin or Phil or preferably both for a Fossils and History lecture but nothing definite yet. Expecting some other of our European friends, possibly some of our Asian members, hoping for a few from Oceania - it's the New Year now, kids. Start saving your pennies! This will be bigger than last time, and last time was pretty impressive. Besides, Florida rocks in June. That's generally before hurricane season, and MOTE has a gigantic pickled squid.
