Wasatch Marine Aquarium Society 12th Annual Winter Banquet and Social

WMAS is returning to the Loveland Living Planet Aquarium for the 2018 WMAS Banquet event.  Join us on Thursday, March 1st 2018 for our fabulous Winter Banquet and Social.  

 

Sponsored by: Dirftwood Aquarium Furniture!



Loveland Living Planet Aquarium

12033 Lone Peak Parkway,

Draper, UT 84020

Doors are open to us starting at 6:30PM. Dinner will be served at 7:00pm in the Island Ballroom.  The aquarium will be closed to the public before our event so we have full access to the aquarium and a few surprises for each of you upon your arrival!  It's a fantastic way to get to experience the aquarium and get a great dinner while there.  This is a fun, family event everyone will enjoy.

We will have a fantastic buffet dinner, drinks and dessert.  As always we will have some awesome gift baskets for our drawing provided by our club presidency. 

For the first time we will have a speaker at our event this year. Melody Brenna from Reef Life Foundation will be on hand to talk about reef restoration efforts going on around the globe.

Tickets for Members are $30 each, $40 for non-members and $15 for kids.  That is a $10 dollar savings for our paid members! These prices will go up 3 weeks before the event so get them now at the discounted rate.

Ticket sales will end on February 22nd so get them before that date!

Tickets to the banquet usually sell out and the price will go up.  Get your tickets now.  Can't wait to see everyone at The Living Planet Aquarium for our Winter Banquet and Social!

We will be selling tickets online as well as in person at club events.  Get yours today.

More details to come as we get details ironed out.

The Aquarium closes to the public at 6PM this day and will open only for the club at 6:30PM

THAT'S CORRECT WE WILL HAVE EXCLUSIVE ACCESS TO THE ENTIRE AQUARIUM JUST FOR OUR EVENT!

The Aquarium closes at 9pm and the ballrooms close at 10pm.

Child cost is for any child between 1-12 years of age. Under 1 is free.

Heads up. Tickets are selling fast! This is a limited availability event and we are more than half way to the sold-out mark already.

If you plan on purchasing tickets and have not done it yet you may miss out.

We are only a couple of weeks out from this event so don't let it sneak up on you!

If you bought online there is no physical ticket sent. You will be on the purchase list when you arrive at the Aquarium. So, just come in the event entrance on the South side of the building (before you reach the main entrance) and check in at the table that will be setup there.

No need to worry about paper tickets that you will probably forget and leave home anyway.

Did you get your tickets? Ticket sales will end on Feb 22nd (or when sold out) so don't put it off.

There are less than 20 tickets left.

We are about 10-15 from full.  I believe the plan was to cap at 80 at this point, I think we are in upper 60's right now.

My first will be a couples relationship building basket. Games, lotions and a few relaxation aids for those times when you just need to lock the door and let the kids finish destroying the house.

I'm working on a second one but it's not ready for it's announcement yet.

I'll give two poems about my basket and mystery box. 

Basket
I can be green
I can be red
I can also be paired with bread!

Or

In the beginning I am small in stature
With warm sun, water and a little bit of dirt
I can get quite large with nature

Mystery box

I am smooth, bumpy and round
part of me is plant-like
something heavy keeps me earthbound

Who doesn't love great food at these events? Correct answer: No one!

Well thanks to our Sponsor Driftwood Aquarium Furniture all attendees to this event will enjoy an upgraded dessert selection. No boring cookie trays for our members! Instead we will enjoy some cakes, pies, and even some cheese cake!

Thank you Driftwood!!!!!

Ok yeah, that's what I thought happened last time as well. Only we got the larger room because no one else had booked it and the aquarium had just opened so they were a bit more willing to let us have it at no extra cost.

By far the best banquet we've ever had - and I've only missed one since 2009 (last year). Food was great, empty aquarium even better, and the baskets were awesome. It was a huge hit with everyone I talked to. Thank you to those that worked so hard to get this done, it's a huge effort!!!
