Nice! I am sure Dr. Joshiwill put a good presentation on. Hope there is a good turnout. 

 

On a side note, we need to get these dates figured out. Back to back events in the same region, probably makes it hard on the reefing community and vendors. They will have to pick their favorite club, and you know who will win that battle.... :P Jk Jk

All joking aside this does need addressed. The date for this years Buckeye reef expo was out there a year ago. Back to back and geographically close is bad for both events. Neither club wants vendors picking and the ones that try to do both are the ones that are suffering.
