Barbie did a very good presentation; I did not realize that she is one of the top authorities of pleco breeding in the world and that she has bred pleco species that no one else has...including Frog and Zebra!
The good news is Eric did a video recording and I believe it will be available for member download. He is at AGA this week so it will probably be available in a couple of weeks. Watch 'airstone' for the updates.
You have to be a member of GSAS, its like $15 for a years membership and you get to see most videos and they put out a newsletter. I think its worth it to buy the membership, if I miss one I can watch it on my own time.
