You know Emmett.  The is not a bad idea at all.  We can have a
online with contests with entry fee's that go to the Defense fund.  This
could be FUN for everyone in all categories and still raise money to
the defense fund.

I talked to Greg about it and he said "Perhaps" but I'm going to go
and pose this to the list.  What do you guys think about doing an Online
Event on MyFishBox.com with lots of fun contests?

It would be something like a $5 or $10 entry fee to certain contests.

First Time Aquascaper's Contest in Small, Medium and Large Tank
Advanced Aquscaper's Contest in  Small, Medium and Large Tank

Do we have artist (Drawing) out there on this list?  Perhaps Aqua

Tell you what, I'll also need help.  Me and Greg can't do this ourselves
and we have really time demanding jobs but I'd give up some sleep to get
this going.  So if you are interested, why don't you email me at 
cychow at exc1_annex.com.

This could be a fun thing for everyone, get money to help the fund and
me and Greg jump start MyFishBox.com too.

Email me if you are interested. :)
