Hey Jay, you gotta come to this year's convention!

And as a reminder/promot to everyone:
The 2003 NANFA convention is in Huntsville, AL, from June 5 - June 8, on the
campus of the University of Alabama in Huntsville. Six speakers are
currently on the list for speaking during our Friday talks:
Dave Neely, on North American sculpins;
Joe Scanlan, on keeping the stippled studfish, Fundulus bifax;
Brian Jones, on operating public fish displays at the Dauphin Island Sea Lab
Estuarium in Alabama;
Brady Porter, (probably) on the molecular phylogenetics of the snubnose
darter Ulocentra;
Ned Mudd, attorney, on environmental advocacy in Alabama;
Jeff Garner, Alabama State Malacologist, on freshwater mussel diversity in
We'll also have a raffle and auction, along with local collecting trips
around the greater Tennessee Valley on Saturday and Sunday. Rooms are
available through an on-campus hotel complex.

Contact me if you have any questions; I'm planning to do a general mailing
at the beginning of the new year with all of the particulars.
