2018 NADA Show

The 2018 NADA Discus Show and Convention was a huge success with a wonder cast of domestic and international speakers like Andrew Soh, Paul Butler, Dr Steven Smith, Vitor Hugo Quaresma of Santarem Discus and Spencer Jack who spoke at the awards banquet. The inclusion of show fish from international Exhibitors from Singapore and the UK. Then there is the gathering of discus enthusiasts, some who have never been to a show and the old timers whom make every show but all who get to make new friends and renew past friendships. And then there is the discus…more on this later and other show happenings. Let’s not forget the NADA supporters, judges, attendees and the entire group of behind the scenes workers who made the show possible!
