    So in December Rich Ross, Senior Aquatic Biologist at the Steinhart Aquarium will be coming to us to give a talk! I've heard time and time again he is a prolific and entertaining speaker. We will be having a potluck right before the talk so bring your most exquisite dishes.

    Every year tons of other clubs and marine societies pay Rich Ross to fly around the country to speak about his research and adventures. We're so lucky to have him right here in the Bay Area!

    You are invited to come! Bring something.....food....drinks...plates.....appetite.....humor.....good vibrations, etc!

    UPDATE: We will be in Room 758

    CALL ME 111-111-1111 if you cant find the room.

    It is near the solar panel parking lot
