    After literally 8 hours of banging my head against the wall, I finally was able to fix the problem with the Google Maps API that was preventing events from being created due.

    Created event, merged @DangerJ@DangerJ's thread back into it, etc etc...now it's on the calendar and the location/dates/map/etc shows up properly.

    We have a thread for hobbyist vendor signup. Working on getting a consolidated list of vendor commitments, should be done this weekend. I shot you a PM with some more info to get your stuff documented :)

    So since this is on St Paddy's Day, will there be discounts on green corals? Haha! Or how about Guinness on tap and catered corned beef and cabbage? Lol if you can't tell, it's one of my favorite holidays!

    Committed (payment status unknown currently):
    Aquaporium
    Midwest Frags
    Reef Deep
    Mermaids Cove

    Several vendors have yet to respond one way or another. Likely to pick up a few more. Then we have the hobbyist vendors :)

    One consistent feedback I've had regarding last year is that we had too many vendors. It cuts down on total revenue for any given table so that is definitely being taken into consideration. There's also a good amount of competing shows happening pretty much every single weekend during the timeframe.
