This Friday evening come join us for the Reef Builders meetup at the MACNA Friday night reception at the Sheraton Hotel. We’d love to meet new and old Reef Builders readers from across the country to discuss the first arduous day of catching up with friends from all over the country, uncovering some of the latest products and scoping out some of the hottest livestock in the reefing world. Speaking with our readers gives us a chance to elaborate on some of our favorite stories from the past year and some of the hottest news from the last few days. We will be enjoying the company of many national authors and conference speakers and taking advantage of the reception food and drink. If that wasn’t enough, we’ll also be giving away one large frag of a LiveAquaria original coral, the Northwood Pink Lemonade Microclados, to be picked up at the LiveAquaria booth. Not sure how we’re giving it away yet but we’ll probably let Kevin pick out a winner himself. We may have our reservations about the scheduled entertainment by The Nerds but there’s no doubt we will be enjoying ourselves with some adult beverages and the real Reef Nerds. Of course RSVP is not required but we’d love to see who’s coming from your shout outs in the comments.
