Thursday June 19
for first half of the day, final lecture time not yet determined, but should end
around noon. Aquarist Olympics and BBQ for Thurs. afternoon. The events will be
fun and challenging. Just a note regarding the Olympics... over the past few
years, the events seem to have gotten a bit out of hand with the basic events
essentially getting destroyed, so they will be much more tame yet fun, this
year. Bribing judges is still strongly encouraged and actually required!!
Thurs. night is an open night for all, with special treatment for RAW attendees at: http://eastenderscoffeehouse.com/, which is of course open to all during the rest of the week as well. NFT will be available for transport from AMW to hotel.
