Just a reminder that there are only two weeks until this event! If you haven't had the privilege of meeting Anthony Calfo or hearing him speak then this is an event that you won't want to miss.

And don't forget that after Anthony's presentation and fragging demonstration there will be a frag auction featuring frags from the likes of Reefer Madness, Exotic Reefs, Fragfarmers, HVRK members and RC's own SPStoner!

Following the frag auction, drawings will be held for the many door prizes that will be given away along with a raffle where you can win great prizes like a Euro-reef protein skimmer, a Typhoon III RO/DI system from Air, Water and Ice, a T-5 retrofit setup from IceCap, a 29 gallon deluxe aquarium from Marineland, gift certificates from Oceans Motions, Marine Depot, and more! Sign up today! There are only about 40 spots remaining and you must pre-register in order to attend this event! Hope to see you there! Sign Up Today
