Hi Robert:

The AKA National Convention will be in Syracuse N.Y. in 1998, sponsored
the Upstate New York Killifish Association.  It will be held on Memorial
Weekend.  Go into AKA.ORG and you can get details on it.  

If your convention is at another time, our local killifish group, SLAKA,
our local general aquarium club, MASI (Metro Aquarium Association of St.
Louis, Inc.) will be pleased to become involved.  I strongly recommend
contacting the Radisson Hotel, St. Louis Airport (Karen Baggot
ph.314-291-6700, or Henry VIII Hotel and Convention Center (Jay Dearing

We may also be able to help you set up a collecting trip to the Ozarks,
as we
did for the AKA Convention.

One area of concern:  There are two other fish conventions in St. Louis
1998, the national Guppy group and the International Chiclid Conference
(usually 600 entries and a huge number of people).  If you want, I can
out the dates on these meetings next week.  If you are interested in
collecting, I can set you up with some outstanding field biologists from
Louis University and Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville.  They
the best locations in Missouri and Illinois, and will probably easily be
persuaded to go along, provided you limit your number of collectors at

If you can get the right date and the right time of year, St. Louis could
a great place for your convention.  Let me know if I can provide further
information. (314-532-4210).

Talk to you soon.
