if you have never been, this is the best reef on the east coast arguably the country. if you haven't seen this reef in a year, prepare to be blown away!!.

I am bringing some sps that are going to be once a year frags. also ballistic aussie acro's and a few true wild collected sps. 10 miles from my place. see what you have been missing , right here in suffolk.

I am really surprised at the low turnout for nerac! the speakers are Charles Delbeek , Julian Sprung and Andrrew Rhyme. The cost is only $20 for admission. there is not many chances that you will get to see these two in the ny area. i hope more you guys will attend.

I agree Reef Reaper. This should be standing room only. I believe NERAC has seen steady growth in attendance though. Sadly, I think the "hobby" for a lot of people is buying frags and then maybe selling them. Hearing from two luminaries of the hobby firsthand is not high on their list of reef priorities.

Yeah the draw for people is big named vendors not big named speakers. Most people dont want to learn but just fill their tanks with discounted corals Even though there will be a number of great vendors like reefgen and Dan Rigle to name a few

At the LIRA meeting the other night there were a few suggestions on marketing this event some more.
Since these guys are big named speakers, would marketing this event to College students, marine biology department at local universities be helpful?
Also, it would be nice to have an agenda or a list of topics for discussion.
