The Michigan Invasives List was put up. Excited to see mute swan, killer shrimp, glossy buckthorn, and (especially) oriental bittersweet. Does accidentally relist a couple things from the National list (Brazilian Waterweed/Elodea, Giant African Snail).

Not that bad. I looked up Phragmites on Wikipedia and the page only lists 4 species (of which common Reed is the only one with a page).

I just re-checked and it says "Snakehead(all species)" which they copy/pasted from a page of the PA fish and wildlife commision website. It adds up to 37 species... We just went with Northern Snakehead.

Oh, forgot to mention, if you haven't seen the updated schedules for states, I'd take a look at them (disease and experimental both have two extra timeslots with a 10-team capacity, hovercraft is now 6 timeslots with 10-team capacity).

Portage went pretty good overall. Hopefully in the future they can get more teams, this year they only had 12. I can't remember overall final places but Portage Central was first. Hopefully events like this will help boost the teams of Southwestern Michigan.
