Re: [APD] AGA convention

Great to hear you enjoyed the convention. This was the
biggest so far and some last minute schedule changes made
things run later than planned on Saturday night, but it
sure looked like everyone was having a grand time,
including Mr. Amano. 

The GWAPA folks, led by Rick Dotson, hosted the convention
for the AGA and worked hard to make the convention run as

pitched in as well, like Larry Lampert, Ben Belton, Ricky
Caine and others who had no reason to pitch in except for
their love of, and dedication to, the hobby. Lots of other
folks also, but too numerous to mention here.

For those that missed it, there were some great
presentations and interesting discussions inside and
outside the presentaiton rooms -- from the changes in
Amano's technique since his last visit to the AGA to the
state of the aquatic hobby trade in Europe, Japan, andthe
