Ed, we checked out the Portland thread, sounds like really great support and interest from folks down there.  It's great the vice pres. is offering to help out! 

Sounds like we will have a great group of speakers this year, I'm so bummed we'll be out of town!  :-(  We will, however, make sure our tank is available for the tour.

Yeah, they offered to do what they could to help.    Thank you for heads up. 
So Spokane has Kevin and Barbie willing to help.   If Portland can do anything they will.   I will check on mailing flyers to LFS in Portland or asking one of them to post flyers at LFS or possibly go to meeting in Portland.

Stace said something about going to Spokane.   We will see how that pans out.
come over and see..:)

We had a club officers meeting and decided that it would be a great idea if we gave you the option to do a payment plan towards the 2009 MCMAC Conference ticket purchase. 

With the economy and all, this may help with allocating the cost and not feeling the pinch all at once.  I'm definitely going to take advantage of it because this is one conference I don't want to miss.  I'm looking forward to all the great speakers and the tank tour, of course.

Our treasurer (Stacey) has agreed to keep a payment card on file with your name on it so if you are interested in taking advantage of this plan, you can email her at: staciepuananihahn@yahoo.com or esmzhahn@clearwire.net for more information. 

You can make 3 easy payments (May, June and July) and have it paid by the deadline of July 15th.  She will also do a "will call" and can hold your ticket at the door.

Ticket Prices: 
Members:  $60/Family or $50/Individual
Non-Members: $70/ Family or $60/Individual

This price is good for the two day event July 17th & 18th which includes 2 dinners, 4 speakers, tank tour, auction, raffles and a great experience of sharing the hobby with others.
