A special thanks to Aqua Craft's Michael Del Prete for donating a year's supply of Bio-Sea Marine Mix salt for the reef tank BNARC supports at the Miller Park Zoo in Bloomington IL.
We are going to have more space this year so the speakers will be in a separate area from the vendors. If you are a vendor an have not paid your fees please send a note to [email protected] confirming your intent to participate, it would also be helpful if you would note what you are donating for the raffle so we can include it in our advertising. We have a waiting list for vendor spaces. Vendor setup can begin at 7 pm to 10 pm on Saturday. On Sunday Feb 15th vendors may enter to set up starting at 7:30 a.m.
This year BNARC is donating a 10% of admission and 1% of raffle proceeds to support the reef tank we donated to the Miller Park Zoo in Bloomington, Illinois, two years ago.
BNARC will give a check for $40 to every reef club that brings 4 or more members who pay admission. The Club that brings the most members will receive a check for $75 ( $40 plus an extra $35). Checks will be made out to the club.
