The NADA Booth at the Aquatic experience in Chicago Nov 6-8 was a huge success for NADA despite only having two weeks to prepare for it. Not only did we get to promote the 2016 NADA Discus Show in Chicago but we also raised some much needed funds for the 2016 show after costs for printing and other materials.

Discus Hans sent ten discus for a show display and donated the fish to NADA which were raffled off at the end of the show. A big shout out to Hans for the donation.

The NADA booth was put together by Keith Perkins of the host group, the MidWest Discus Association and manned by Keith and members of the group during the show. A huge thank you to Keith for putting together the materials for the booth and taking time out his day job to attend the show.

We also signed up quite a few new NADA members during the show. A big win for everyone.
