This is about this year’s most exciting event. The Queensland Cichlid Group is already known to you for a number of reasons. This time we are putting on a Conference featuring three top quality International Speakers. It is being held on the 14th of March, at the Tavernetta Function Rooms, 144 Dorville Road, Carseldine. [*] The Tavernetta has parking for 100 cars on site. [*] The function rooms are close to public transport. [*] Buses and Queensland Rail utilise the same interchange. [*] Only a 10 minute walk from the Carseldine Bus/Railway Station. [*] Please see the attached map for a better idea of the location. [*] The conference starts with registration from 9am till10am. [*] The conference starts at 10am and goes until 10 pm. [*] This means you get to spend twelve hours soaking up the knowledge of our International speakers. Who are these speakers? Our first speaker is Ad Konings. Anyone who has kept an African Rift Lake Cichlid will have read articles or indeed own books written by Ad. Ad has just written Lake Tanganyika Cichlids - Volume Three and will be available to sign copies you have purchased on the day. Ad will be giving two talks approximately an hour and a half in length (including questions). So you will get plenty of up to date, hand gathered information from Ad. As you will see from the list of books authored by Ad below he has been extremely prolific. o MalawiCichlidsinTheirNaturalHabitat; o EnjoyingCichlidsalongwithKjellFohrman&MaryBailey; o CelebratingCichlidsfromLakesMalawiandTanganyika; o TanganyikaCichlidsinTheirNaturalHabitat; o GuidetoMalawiCichlids; o GuidetoTanganyikaCichlids; o Konings'BookofCichlidsandAlltheOtherFishesofLakeMalawi; o CichlidsfromCentralAmerica; o TheCichlidDiversityofLakeMalawi/Nyasa/Niassa: Identification,Distributionand Taxonomy with Jos Snoeks, and a non-fish book, the, Cacti of Texas: In Their Natural Habitat by Gertrud & Ad Konings. Ad also wrote a couple of books on American Cichlids and still has an interest in them and regularly goes collecting with our next speaker. Juan Miguel Artigas Azas is an aquarist in San Luis Potosí, Mexico (the very centre of it). He has loved fish since he can remember and has kept them steadily in home aquariums for over 30 years now. His main interests are Central American Cichlids and Mexican fishes, but he is also very interested in any other type of fish. He will give two talks of around an hour to an hour and a half. Juan Miguel is the creator and editor of the Cichlid Room Companion. His love for computers and nature, together with the revolutionary development of Internet was too much for him to let the opportunity to create that page pass along. He has found that the maintenance of a real good home page is a life time enterprise, and he is ready to cope to that. Juan Miguel enjoys travelling to the natural habitats of the fish he loves, where he obtains underwater pictures of them. He likes to observe them, trying to understand their natural history and relationships. He has managed to obtain a great knowledge on the biology and geographical distribution of the fishes in Mexico. This gives to his conferences an originality and special interest. He has spoken to Aquarists at conventions in several countries, including Mexico, United States, Belgium, Canada, England, Netherlands, Norway, France, Italy Sweden and Germany and now Australia. Juan is part of the American Cichlid Association - Marineland Speakers Program. Spencer Jack is our third speaker. He has been active within the aquaria hobby since the age of five. A true "cichlidiot", he has been working exclusively with cichlids over the last twenty years. Spencer has been an active hobbyist within Winnipeg for a number of years. Some of his roles within the fish hobbyist community include; Co-founder of the Aquarium Society of Winnipeg (1989), Founder and President of the Canadian Cichlid Association (2000). Spencer has a website w.w.w.cichlaholic.com and is also the organizer of the aFISHionados.com . He collects South American cichlids and for those of us lucky enough to have seen his talk at the Victorian Cichlid Society 40th Anniversary Dinner, he takes great photographs. Spencer is a Canadian with a sense of humour, (I know!) and he also will give us two talks of one hour to an hour and a half each. The cost for this Cichlid Spectacular is $150.00 for non-members, and $130.00 for members of the Queensland Cichlid Group. For this you get twelve hours of International knowledge. [*] It gets you morning and afternoon tea. [*] It gets you Lunch and a Buffet Dinner. [*] It gets you a bottomless cup of tea or coffee.
