1) The Army Corp of Engineers have finalized a deal with Reef Innovations to provide 100 Pallet Ball sized Reef Balls to be deployed in 5 groups of 20 in Lake Okeechobee, Florida. Deployment is expected approximately Spring of 2000.

2) Broward County’s DNR and Nova Southeastern finalized a deal with Reef Innovations to put 160 Pallet Balls down off Ft. Lauderdale, Florida as part of the second phase of a study on complexity.

3) Ride Innovations has added the capability of creating Reef Ball foam models for displays in all of the popular sizes of Reef Balls. They look just like concrete reef balls but weigh less than 40 pounds. Foam “corals” can also be added for a reef-like appearance. These are perfect for public displays when mobility is required.

4) A 20 page report on the Charles Hughes Kirbo Memorial Reef Project has been completed. The report includes press releases, Charles Hughes Kirbo Profile, Project Plan Outline and Reef Map, and information about Reef Balls, causes of Coral Reef Degradation, and information on the Jacksonville Reef Research Team. Quantities are limited but an electronic format is expected within a month which will be posted to the web. If an advance copy is important to you, please contact Larry Beggs at 941-650-2519 or Kathy Kirbo at 770-752-0202.

5) The Reef Ball Coalition will offer a seminar for Dive Shops on how to increase profits through ecotourisum and a seminar for Hotels on the same subject at the DEMA show in Las Vegas.

6) Eternal Reefs signed an agreement with the Reef Ball Development Group, Ltd. to be the exclusive provider of Reef Balls with cremated remains for Memorial Reefs in the United States.
