Probably because this is spam advertisement or something of the like.

Can you attend this event just to watch? Not a master aquascaper, but I'd be interested to see everything!

Yes! Our aquascaping competition is part of the Wisconsin Public Television Garden Expo at the Alliant Energy center in Madison. Ticket prices differ based on how many days you want to attend, the WPT Garden Expo website has more info. There's a lot to do, you could come watch the aquascaping contest, there are speakers on a variety of garden related topics including presentations on aquascaping by our judges Bailin Shaw and Karen Randall, and of course all the greenery should be an uplifting change of pace for February! Be sure to check the speaker schedule on the WPT Garden Expo website, and maybe peruse the workshops to see if anything looks interesting: Garden Expo 2017

We still have a few spots left for competitors! Some of the best aquascapers I've met would never consider themselves master aquascapers either... if you'd like to give it a try we'd love to have you compete! We'll have MAAH staff on hand throughout the weekend too if you want to stop by and chat with us.

A big thank you to all of our 18 contestants, our sponsors, our judges, our volunteers, WPTV, and everyone who stopped by to chat! Without all of you our event would have been impossible. Here's a small selection of pictures, if you'd like to see more check out our club website's forums and our facebook page. Hope to see you next year!
