I hope many hobbyists outside the greater Columbia area decide it's worth the trip. The more people that attend, the better the event will be. It's always great to meet other hobbyists. We'd love to have a packed house.

Scott Fellman also writes on ReefBuilders.com -- his entries there can be seen by clicking here.
