We just finished our scheduling of the talks (there are many and they go on for a large portion of the day). To answer your question, there isn’t a best time to go - we will have things going on the entire time!

I anticipate us posting the talk schedule in the next few days.

Thanks Passonfish. This is really helpful. I am seeing now that the site has been updated with the schedule. I don't think that was up the last time that I looked over there. I appreciate the information. :)

This event was a success as many people attended with or without children. Folks are still keeping fish as many raffle tickets were sold for aquaria related items.

It was also interesting to see what new MAS members are up with their aquaria and their fish.
