I know the answer to this question was yes, but I am wondering will the person giving the presentation be able to show pictures of fish to show us what they are talking about, like Russ did last year, or no pictures.

Pictures will be used. I am hoping that most of them will be in PowerPoint presentations with the ability to flip back and forth without reloading the same picture. People on slower internet connections were having problems keeping up when individual pictures were being uploaded. WebEx will load the entire PP presentation to your computer, while discussion is taking place, so the next slide is ready, hopefully before you get there. Of course big high res pictures take time. Hopefully everyone will have an enjoyable experience.:clap:

I see names listed in the thread of people who have signed up. There is a thread saying hurry to sign up the spots are filling. I have sent PM's twice indicating the seminars I would like to sign up for and have received neither a reply or my name added to the seminar lists. How are we supposed to determine whether we are signed up?
