    It is a combination of an exhibitor expo, club swap meet, lecture series, coral farmers market, and a whole lot of awesomeness.
    Bring cash :-D a CC could be deadly!

    I like cash, but you can just paypal me now :party:

    On a serious note, BAYMAC has the chance to grow into a great reefing event and I think this year will only create more traction for years to come!

    I'm working on another edition to the BAYMAC line up after the intense success of REEFstock.

    Are the speakers time schedules going to hold pretty close to what's written (baring any unfortunate events of course)??

    Only reason I ask is last BAYMAC, I had a lot of people asking me about a particular speaker (one of the later ones?) and they weren't speaking at the time, not sure if they were stuck in traffic, homeland security for smuggling fluid on a plane or what not.

    I do see two speakers that I absolutely need to sit and listen to though!

    Last one Jake Adam's caught laryngitis just a day or two prior to the event :( He was present but did not speak.

    I am going to try my best to hold the time slots as they are in print now. Time is tight and I wanted to get as many speakers in as possible.

    I'm very happy to have the speakers we got this year. I hope I can sit through all the talks myself as all will be a new one for the BA.
