A few of the GTA reef clubs are about to combine their efforts to create a province (possibly country wide) super meeting in which any member can come out and see what it's like to have a reef club meeting! Not only does this help under serviced areas without a club or a quality LFS, but it allows all of us to meet up centrally, and create some buzz that MAY just get MACNA back where it belongs! We're asking any and all Ontario hobbyists (and outside of Ontario if you'd like to join us) to let us know if you're a) interested in attending at some point in the fall, b) able to help out with this event, and c) we'd like to know what you'd like to see at this event as well!

If you're a member of a reef club, great! Spread the word there and at your LFS, and if you're not, nows your chance to create one either before or after this event. Our clubs need to be able to support each other so we all succeed in the end. If you have any input on this it would be greatly appreciated!

Stores/Sponsors: If you would like to attend in official capacity please don't hesitate to drop a line here or to myself personally. For those who have frag operations but aren't quite there in terms of a business, this would be a FANTASTIC chance for you to get your name out there and make some sales that day!

Events for the day may include a formal meeting, frag swap, demos, discussion groups, and plenty of help and support for our fellow hobbyists.

If you ARE a member of a reef club or society, please establish a spokeperson to communicate with us so we can streamline this as easily as possible. If you don't have a club in your area but want to represent your region please again, contact us!

There is a discussion on the other canadian forum about this, as that's where most of the clubs keep their home forums, but I'll check here regularly as to not exclude anyone for any reason.

We want this to be a success, and your help/attendance is needed to make sure it is! Any and all input is welcomed!

Sounds really good. A number of us would make the trip from Kitchener. Our club KWAS is moving forward with a MAP (marine awards program) in the not to distant future. Don't leave it to late in September as a bunch of us are heading to MACNA in Dallas this year.

Philster- PM me with your info plz. I'd like to see you step up as the spokeperson for your club. No worries, This won't be right next to MACNA date wise. Might even push it into October just to space things out a tad.

Flavio- I will be in touch after MAST and the DRC have a meeting and decide on some formal direction. If spokespeople want to come out to the DRC meeting on June 24th that might facilitate some movement over the summer. Meeting is in Oshawa. PM me for details.

Love the support and suggestions so far people! This has the potential to be a rather large stepping stone to a MACNA of our own ;)

MACNA is our own (MAST hosted the first one) it just hasn't returned yet.

We are definately interested.
Are you planning on having booths setup at this event?
Guest speakers?
Details!!! :)

We have an RW booth at most of the major shows in the US so we will definately be at a Canadian event.
Having it in the GTA is a real bonus.
