What kind of fish am I exactly?Join us....resistance is futile....

The RAW 2005 registration form is now available. In an effort to assist RAW 2005 organizers with attendance numbers, a discount for early registration will be offered. Some of the offered optional events are still to be confirmed, but please let us know what you are interested in. Here is a bit more information about them:

Evening trip to Birch Aquarium - on Wed. the 22nd, buses are being arranged to make the 2 hour trip to San Diego to visit the Birch Aquarium at Scripps Institute. This will include food and drinks that is being sponsored by Birch Aquarium. There is no extra charge for this.

Trip to L.A. wholesalers - we are trying to arrange buses to go and visit several of the major fish and invertebrate wholesalers in Los Angeles. This is a great opportunity to meet the people you order your animals from in person as well as do some shopping for your facilities while you are at it. LA is a major hub for aquarium tropicals coming from all over the world, and this is an opportunity to choose the cream of the crop, as well as see how these operations are run. There also is no extra charge for this, but the trip is limited to 56 people.

Dive boat trip to Catalina Island - this is being arranged through a third party provider and will be more or less independent of the hosts. It will happen only if there is enough demand for it. The trip will be arranged with some special pricing that we hope to announce as soon as possible. This usually includes everything except food.  Normally, boats leave Long Beach or San Pedro early in the morning. You make two, sometimes three dives in the beautiful kelp forests of Catalina Island, then are back in the evening. Catalina Island has some of the best diving in the world, but this is an all day commitment.

We know you're excited to come, so register soon!

The form is available as an Adobe Acrobat file. Just print it out, fill it out, and send it out. But don't forget payment!
