    Rocky Mountain Marine Conference & Swap

    Alright everyone! We handed out tons of fliers for this yesterday and had a few habnging from various vendor booths!! Here is a little bit more information on the 1st ever Colorado Tri-Club meeting - The Rocky Mountain Marine Conference & Swap!!! All 3 clubs have decided to combine all 3 of their largest meetings of the year into one awesome event for EVERYONE!!!!

    April 16th - FREE ADMISSION!!!
    Highlands Ranch High School
    9375 Cresthill Ln (Corner of University & Cresthill, just East of I-25 & Lincoln)
    Highlands Ranch, CO 80130-4408


    Speakers
    We will also have an array of speaking presentations going on throughout the day! Our first confirmed speaker is Joe Thompson "thejrc." His presentation is - "Basement Biologists - How Hobbyists are changing the face of research as we know it!" He said he will give us something "different" than your ordinary presentation, maybe with a little hands on interaction!

    There are still more details to come as far as speakers go, but we know that you will be pleasantly surprised!!!


    Science Fair
    The 3 participants of this years 1st Annual MASC Science Fiar will be displaying their projects. As stated before, ALL three of the participants will be featured in a future edition of Reef Hobbyist Magazine! All of you, the attendee's, will have a chance to check out the projects, judge them, and then cast a vote to see who will win the "popular" vote. This will also be the time that the MASC board releases all of the science fair projects to our special judges (Matt Pedersen, Bob Fenner) who will ultimatly decide the grand prize winner. The grand prize winner recieves a FREE trip to MACNA 2011! Hotel provided by our own JontheFB owner of Fathom Aquatics, and the flight will be provided by Aqua Medic of North America! The winner will also recieve free entree to MACNA 2011 and will get to display their winning project in the Reef Hobbyist Magazine MACNA booth!!


    Demo's
    We also will have a few demonstrations going on that day! Our first demo will be a fragging demo! This will be an interactive demonstration for any attendee who would like to participate. It will be a demo on fraggin/glueing an easy, medium, extreme coral! At the end, you might even be able to take the piece home that you were working on . But remember, because supplies may be limited you must sign up beforehand! This intereactive demo will be $10 for all club members and $20 for any club non member. Each club (DARC, MASC, SCMAS) determines who is a club member and who isn't a club member so if you have any questions please contact your board.

    Also, if you are interested in holding a demo, we have been asked to try and find someone to do a DIY demo, PLEASE contact the MASC board and we will try and work out the details with you!!


    Frag Swap
    As always there will be a frag swap! Here is the list of the vendors that we have so far. If you would like to be a part of the frag swap please let us know and we can add you to the list! Remember, "older/used" equipment can also be sold, so if you've got anything lying around in the garage bring it on over and help someone else out!!

    Steel City Corals
    Mile High Aquatics
    Build Your Tank
    MTS

Remember, ALL PROCEEDS will be donated to Highlands Ranch High school for their awesome dedication to this hobby, and to help maintain the tanks and the reef club that they have at their school!!

    what are the times that this is going to start and go too? I am wondering because like reefstock I wasn't able to attend due to the fact that I worked and by the time I would have gotten up there I would have been there long enough to walk in the front door and that is it. I am thinking if we could have it run a while longer or start later that it might work better for those who can't attend due to conflicting time. This is just a suggestion thank you for listening.

    I don't know if I skimmed right over it but I was wondering about a time frame this is going to go on. I would like to make it but work saturdays and sundays so it is hard to make it unless it is here in the springs. I am going to try and make it up there but I need a timeframe. If it ends before 5 it wont be worth the drive to get up there to walk around for a few minutes and then have to leave.
