    Yeah, they're a tad sciency at the Science Center. The do have divers in the big tank daily to clean the glass and substrate but you have to only wear their equipment in addition to being scuba certified. No tails. Yeah, I asked...

On Sunday we'll have another 6-hour swim and I am working on an event for those who are staying through Sunday night.
    Ugh I want to cry. It sounds so amazing. In order to make it I'd have to travel during New Years Eve. As a amazing all you mers are, I would have to choose between spending time with my family and going to this meet-up. Hopefully I can attend the next if it's not during a big holiday time.

    Not to muddy the waters, but winter is the worst time to travel for folks like me living in the snow belt. There's always a very good chance at getting stuck in an airport with cancelled flights due to snow. For a 3-day event, it's a real risk traveling in January. One flight cancellation, and one could easily miss most of the fun! I would much prefer an event like this to be in the spring. Just sayin'.

    I agree....Spring seems like a better time. Especially, since this is immediately after the Holidays.

    I'll chime in and say I love having it in January, because it's the only time I can travel out of state. I work as a tour guide, so by the time spring rolls around I'm too busy to take the time off work and travel. (that, and all the local cons happen in the spring). Just after Christmas is a great time for me.

    I have to agree with the weather comments, that's definitely a concern for my group as we are driving 15 hours very early New Year's Day. As for hosting the con ON New Years next year, I'm strongly opposed to this. Many people (including myself) have to work a special event or have plans with friends and family and I think you'd see A.) a substantial loss in attendance and B.) A lot of problems caused with mers trying to change plans to accommodate this. Not to mention flight prices rocketing during holidays.
