    Hi All,

    Just a heads up that you might want to schedule a visit to Seattle on September 15th, 2012. Additional details will be forthcoming once the exact venue has been chosen but we anticipate renting a location that should be able to seat 200 - which means there will be room for non-members.

    If you are not a GSAS member, but would like to attend, you may contact me at:
    Seattle dot Aquarist at gmail dot com

    GSAS will compile of list of non-members that wish to attend. Once the venue has been finalized, probably in the spring, we will notify those on the list and advise them how to confirm their reservations.

    We hope to see you in Seattle next fall!

    Did she ever get her book, the one that everyone wanted at the AGA convention, converted to English? If so, could you tell me how I could get one?

    Hi Jerry,

    I checked with Erik and Kathy Olson, they said it has not come out in English yet, but they are still hoping! I think they have the German edition.

    Hi Jerry,

    Erik and Kathy heard from Karen Randall, who has accompanied Christel K. on several explorations, that the negotiations are continuing between the German publisher and the publisher that wants to translate it into English......all is not lost!

    Sweet. I have met Karen during the AGA convention here in Miami last year. She is also a FB friend so I will ask her. Thanks for poking around for me.
