Hi everyone,

You don't need to be a club member to watch the presentations.

There is also a live Tropheus Raffle being held now through March 14 for U.S. folks only, the link is Here on how to purchase the raffle tickets.

Thanks for the bump. I had forgot it was today. Good timing as well seeing as how the wife had left me on my own all day : )
I especially liked Ad and Pams talks.

Glad you were able to watch it and enjoyed the talks. I didn't realize it was going to be almost 4 hours long though that did include the club meeting update and the raffle and tropheus auction.

Ad is always a great speaker but it was also nice to get the views of Pam's underwater videos and her take on how she keeps them plus Leif's talk on the history of how they catch and keep fish locally before transporting to importers. I had some trouble with Mathias' talk but interesting to see what the German fishkeepers are up against with selling their fish and the rigid requirements they have to go through let alone the cost of electricity and water.

On a side note, I was alone also as the boyfriend is at a bowling event today. :D

Was very interesting and informative ... :thumb:

I think Mathias probably had some latency issues with his connection ... plus the normal ESL/translation stuff. Does sound like the regs over there are just a bit over the top.

Overall, it seems to me that it was well-attended and came off pretty well ... :)

Really enjoyed this. It's nice that they archive things, so you don't have to watch it all at the same time. Pretty basic stuff, really, but interesting. :thumb:
