Pondemonium 2015 by Fred Pape

I just returned from Aquascape, Inc.’s annual conference dubbed Pondemonium.  It is a yearly gathering of the country’s top pond builders, retailers, and distributors.  This year’s event was held at the beautiful Q Center in St Charles, Il.  The conference had a jam packed three day schedule of classes, seminars, motivational speeches, networking, and fun.  Brad Barton gave an inspiring and magical talk about overcoming life’s challenges, as he did, on his way to earning the world record in the Master’s Mile.  Mike Powell brought the crowd to their feet after his talk about how to be a real man.  We were even visited by the incredible Dr. Pol of NatGeo Wild fame.  He gave a humorous chat about the challenges of filming a reality TV series.  All of the seminars were informative and entertaining.  The afterhours networking was the most valuable as always.  I was able to catch up with numerous old friends as well as make some new ones.  There are some large and unique projects coming up that Lentzcaping will be a part of.  Pondemonium 2015 was a great event and I am already looking forward to next years!
