The Marine Aquarist Roundtable of Sacramento is proud to once again host the Western Marine Conference April 21-23, 2006 at the Red Lion Hotel in Sacramento, California. We'd like to extend our invitation to you and your marine society to come to Sacramento and participate in one of the few conferences this side of the Rockies. With a dozen of the nations premier speakers and a wide variety of quality livestock and aquarium related products on display and for sale, it will definately be a weekend you won't want to miss out on.

"What does it take to get a response from the WMC email address?:) I sent an email 5+ days ago with no response."
Do we print out the email confirmation as our ticket? Can we buy dinner tickets later if we decide to go? My email stated there were only 40 people registered is that correct? Thanks All!
