This is going to be a FANTASTIC meeting, you won't want to miss it!

A little more about Marc -




Marc "melev" Levenson has been in the hobby since 1998, blogging his experiences about his own reef on his website melevsreef.com to help others learn husbandry skills. Most recently he's become an online personality with tens of thousands of followers on his YouTube channel (melevsreef) also geared at helping other reefers through his personal experiences.  His website's articles, blogs, and Critter ID cover topics like pest control, feeding techniques, working with acrylics, reef photography and water chemistry to name a few. His online store carries many products like his RODI systems, custom sumps and even includes some items that he himself invented as clever solutions to make reefkeeping easier. Marc is a nationally recognized speaker, who regularly recommends supporting local club events, shopping local fish stores, and interacting with others via social media.  His other hobby is diving, exploring natural reefs.  His current tanks are a 400-gallon reef and a 60-gallon anemone cube, filled with captive bred fish and aquacultured corals.  youtube.com/melevsreef

Less then 2 weeks until this EPIC night!

Did you know we are a MASNA club? We support Masna which helps support education and study of everything salt water.  They are helping us pay for Mark's travel to Salt Lake and they are also throwing in some goodies for our raffle and some other surprises. 

You want to go to Macna next year in Vegas, great meeting to come to!

Final arrangements have been made and Marc will be here in just over a week. He's a great speaker and this should be some very good information. So clear your calendars and get yourself to the meeting. You won't want to miss it.!

Can anyone come to the meetings or do you have to be a paid member?

Also I've always wanted to join but what do I get for my membership and how much is it?

Can I sign up at the meeting?

Anyone can come to meetings; you do not have to be a Paid member to attend - and the meetings are (almost always) FREE. And you can bring your spouse / significant other, kids, etc. All are welcome.

Paid membership is $26 for a year and gets you the following (and maybe more I have forgotten):

 - Access to the Paid members Forum on the Board (which you can't see right now)
 - Entrance to the Paid members BBQ for you and your family
 - Discounts at some of our Local Fish Stores (you get an ID keychain to show for the discount)
 - First crack (and a discount) at tickets to Special Events like our Winter Banquet
 - The knowledge that you are helping to financially support our Non - Profit club... and that support allows us to bring in great guests like Marc Levenson!!! ClapClapClap

And yes, you can sign up right at any meeting. You can pay for your membership w/ cash, check or credit card right at the meeting. Or you can sign up online here - just click on the "About Us" link on the left side of your computer screen

We use that money to also put on events:

The food provided
Speaker fees and travel
Raffle prizes

Having club fee's helps offset that.  Again we are non-profit and our mission is to be community and knowledge sharing.  

Paying the fee also adds to the members "buy-in" with the club and I think adds to your participation as you are apart of it.  

What I always tell people is come on in and go to an event and see what you think before buying.

These raffle items seem appropriate for next weeks meeting on Reef Pests! Rustys Reefs even donated a $25 gift certificate (thanks Rusty). We will have plenty more next week. Everyone who attends will get a raffle ticket!

Got a box full of cool things donated for our meeting next week by MASNA (whom WMAS is a supporter of and is helping us bring Marc to Utah). These are all giveaway items for the meeting. Want to see what's in the box? Come to the meeting.
