    The American Cichlid Association will be holding their annual convention July 19-24 2011 in Washington D.C. this year. I know it is a year away but I am SO excited I had to mention this.

    I just found out that the 2011 A.C.A. Convention is going to be in Silver Springs, MD. For those of you who have never been, it's quite an event. Last one I attended was in Atlanta, about eight years ago. I worked a second, weekend job, to pay for that and the one on N.J. the year before.
    Nothing is listed yet, but you can usually count on hearing Ad Konings, Paul Loiselle, Pam Chin, and a heap of other good speakers. There are room sales, vendors' booths, a huge fish show, with an awards banquet, and a tremendous auction on the last day. Meeting people from forums where you post, which is always interesting. And lots of partying. (Pam Chin told me once "The A.C.A. is a drinking club with a fish problem")
    Anyway, pencil it in. It's one helluva great way to spend three days.

    SS is only a 17 hour drive...hmmm I think I can get a few cichlid freaks that went with me to brew city can save some cash and drive down with me.(driving is easier, especially with mounted/heated livewells in the car)

    If ANYONE has not attended an ACA annual convention, you are missing every little last bit of heaven on earth.
