    Please Welcome Steven Pro, as our 4th and final speaker for MMC 2011, Steven Pro has had an aquarium for as long as he can remember, but didn't get into marines until sometime in the early 1990's.

He has also worked previously for Red Sea and IceCap Inc.

    Looks like the first speaker is at 9am on Saturday, what about the other speakers? Who and when?  What happened to Sunday's program?  I could have made it to the conference on Sunday.  Can you buy tickets at the door Saturday?
