Yes, not as big as the spring reef conference. But, Instant Ocean has donated about 20 cases of various products. Plus, there were some late items for the reef conference that I held til the fall (BRS and eShopps). I will also bring the homemade rock that the club made in the spring.

Dr. Foster and Smith donated some goody bags. These will be supplemented with some of the Instant Ocean Products noted above as well as with some frag sample packs from the Alternative Reef that they gave me at MACNA.

 

There are about 50 goody bags and they will go to the first 50 registered bidders at the auction (FYI, this includes the volunteers as they get there first for set up and thus, get registered first)

 

Please note that these are one per bidder and not one per person! In other words, if you show up with your spouse and 4 kids, you only get one bag and not 6!

you have a few options:

 

If you don't plan on getting a SWFMAS club membership, the entry fee is $5 per person. Lunch is an additional $8 per person including 1 drink, but you needed to RSVP for lunch by October 7th to guarantee a lunch ticket. If there is enough food, we will sell additional tickets.

 

At this point your cost would be either $10 for entry only or $26 for entry with lunch.

 

If you join the SWFMAS club, you can get either an individual membership provided you are over 18($15 / year) and pay an additional $3 entry fee and $5 for your Dad, or $10 for your entry + lunch and $13 for your Dad's entry + lunch.

 

With the purchase of an individual SWFMAS club membership, your cost would be $20 for individual membership + entry only, or $38 for individual membership + entry + lunch

 

If you join the SWFMAS club you can get a family membership (required for minors) which will cover you and your Dad for $20 a year. If you do this, you would pay $3 per person additional for entry only for a total cost of $26, or $10 per person additional for entry + lunch, for a total cost of $40.

While this costs more initially, if you are planning to be active at meetings and events it will save you money in the course of a year.

Memberships can be purchased online using paypal; just click on join club form the home page. Or you can purchase at any meeting or event. At tomorrow's event we will be accepting cash, check, and credit.

 

Look forward to meeting you.
