State based Events (Organised by State Reps)
Upon receipt of the posters and the Behind the Theme Information sheets, State reps use their State Grant of $500 and the MESA web site to do what they can to organise an event for Seaweek. This is the first time state reps have done this so 2001 is a trial.
