I wasn't aware we were doing Iron Aquascaper this year at the convention, 
but... in 2006's San Francisco convention we pitted two teams, Aquarium 
Design Group and Aqua Forest Aquarium, against each other in a realtime 
competition to aquascape an ADA aquarium, with realtime play-by-play 
narration courtesy of Jim Lockhart.  It was a lot of fun.  The whole 
debacle is edited from three cameras and compressed for time on the AGA's 
2006 Convention video (plug, plug) available to members via our website.

We're still getting details worked out with Mr. Amano, but the past two 
conventions in which he was our guest, he did a live aquascaping demo, 
narrating as he went (hey, also available for AGA members in DVD form :).

I suspect he'll probably do a demo, but it sure would be interesting 
seeing him referee an Iron Aquascaper event!
