Message #86

1) The Reef Ball Development Group staff has returned from exhibiting at our sixth DEMA Show in New Orleans. We always enjoy seeing all of our old friends and making new ones at these shows. We had strong interest from Belize, Sabah, the Keys, Guam, Mexico, Japan, Venezuela, Canada, California, Mississippi, Florida, England, and Guatemala (among others). The year ahead is looking very busy indeed!

2) The Reef Ball Staff will be in the Keys this weekend for some monitoring, a possible project, and a little R&R.

3) We are planning a trip to Belize in early February for a demonstration pour of a Bay Ball and to kick off a community based project partiallly funded by the Reef Ball Foundation.

4) We will have representatives at the Miami Boat Show Feb 11-14. Please contact the Reef Ball office at 941-752-0169 or if you would like to set up a meeting.

5) The Miami Boat Show will be preceded by the Annual Meeting of the Recreational Fishing Alliance on Feb 10. Emphasis this year will be on the introduction of their documentary on the destruction caused by certain commercial gear types and their campaign to get them removed from US waters. Call 888-SAVE-FISH (888-728-3347) for more info.
