What's with ADA moving their results party right on top of the AGA Convention? We should be working together to promote the hobby. It seems a bit petty to me.

In the D.C., Maryland, or NOVA area? Come check out The Greater Washington Aquatic Plants Association! www.gwapa.org

Yes, this is not good for either group.

Congrats to all! We definitely need more than the 40 something entries we get each year from USA.

Honestly, I don't think there was anything intentional about it with consideration to the AGA. They chose the dates they did this year so that they could bring Party participants into the mountains (one where Amano did a lot of photography in) for the autumn foliage on the 30-31st for the peak of the season as part of their 20th anniversary celebration.

I'm not trying to bash ADA, just curious why that was. It was a bummer to not have a lot of the normal people there because they were in Japan.

Amano was nice and sent some products for auction and 20th anniversary pincettes for everyone who participated in the aquascaping workshop.

Oh no! I didn't think you were bashing ADA, I just meant to offer some clarity on why they chose the dates they did.

As far as I remember, Jeff and I were the only Americans in Japan. I know for some reason quite a lot of the Houston guys that usually go to AGA couldn't make it, and I thought that was kind of unfortunate. I know Luis looked forward to going again, but had some things to take care of. Mike wanted to go, but had to go to Florida for a project.
