BEM 2017 T-Shirt
Cost: $20 USD
A sustainably sourced, eco-friendly t-shirt, silk screened with meeting logos designed by one of our own (Benthic student) on front and back is a responsible remembrance of this year’s conference.
Myrtle Beach Pelicans
The Pelicans are in town playing home games from Wednesday, 4/12 to Sunday, 4/16. While BEM-SEERS is holding functions the majority of those evenings, we thought for those staying over either because of flights or holiday plans an evening watching the local single A Chicago Cubs franchise would be enjoyable. The group rate for box seats is $10, $22 if an all you can eat tailgating is included. When registering, please let us know if you would be interested in such an event and which option appeals.
