Subject: June 2018 Meeting Mark Callahan!
Date Posted: January 24 2018 at 3:28pm


We have an extra special treat coming in June - Mark Callahan, Mr. Saltwater Tank himself will be joining us to talk reefing! Stay tuned for details. This one is going to be EPIC!!! This is a FREE WMAS Event on 6/7!!! Hope to see you there!

MEETING TOPIC: Coral Slection for the long Haul.

Placing corals requires strategy and specific technique before and after the coral purchase. Relying on putting SPS up high and softies/LPS down low leaves your tank looking predictable and boring. My coral selection for the long haul talk shows you not only which corals to pick, but also where to put them in your tank to create a mixed reef tank worthy of any tank of the month award.

Mark has a huge social media presence, massive following on his YouTube channel (great videos). Mark gives talks all over the country and does a great job explaining complex hobby related things in easy to understand terms.



We have some great sponsors to thank for helping with this event! Lets hear it for tham and their contribution to our club and helping us bring in amazing speakers like this!

I don't know? Just excited. Anything special with the meeting? What did they sponsor? Why (like how can we get them to sponsor every meeting)?

Well here is a little bit of background and info on the sponsorships:

Driftwood Aquarium Furniture - is currently the clubs highest contributing sponsor for this year. They have donated furniture (and aquariums) to events, have directly paid for speaker fees, and sponsored upgrades to Paid member events going on this year. Their donations have allowed us to have great prizes for contests, more enjoyable events and more events by allowing us to stretch our club dollars.

Reef On - Is one of our active local store sponsors and has really been an active participant with helping bring some great benefits to the club. They have made donations to our meeting drawings, helped cover costs of bringing in our event speaker, facilitated receipt of product donations and simplified the handling of those donations and pickup by drawing winners. They were a participant in our Spring Fragstock and hope to see them back for the fall Fragstock as well.

Fritz Aquatics - Is a new sponsor for this year and has donated their product for use in our club drawings to help improve product offerings in the drawings and bring in additional funds from ticket sales to further offset the costs of bringing Mark Callahan to our club meeting to speak. They have been easy to work with and we would love to see more involvement from them going forward.

Hopefully that gives a little look into some of the behind the scenes help that our sponsors provide and the impact it has on the ability of the club to offer such great events to our members. So next time you see those drawing tickets for sale at the meetings just remember that these sponsors are making those items available and by doing so allowing us to bring improved events to all of our members!

We couldn't make all of these events happen for the club without our sponsors and we fail at talking about them enough so reach out to them and thank them for their support of the club and you, its memebers!

This is great, thanks. I guess I wasn't sure if Fritz (for example) said "here's ten bucks" or if they said "here's a thousand to cover airfare and hotel."
Also, if Driftwood is sponsoring Callahan, can they get him to autograph the inside of a cabinet door (Or something)?

Cool sponsors, thanks for the update.
