I plan on attending even though it involves a 2 1/2 hour drive EACH WAY. Whats your excuse?
In all seriousness if your schedules will permit just a few hours out of your day tomorrow this meeting will be well worth it. You have the ability to network with local hobbists just like yourself, get seem great deals on coral frags
from Dr Mac and Sons as well as some other vendors as well as members. You have a chance to meet and hear from one of the can do/will do persons in the hobby Mr. Steven Pro.
You dont have to be an expert at this hobby to enjoy this meeting. They have everyone from beginners to long time hobbists and we all enjoy one thing. Meeting and talking about our tanks as well as learning how we can make this hobby better.
Lets see how big of an AA crowd we can get at the meeting.
