NCMAS March 2013 Meeting and Auction.

The March NCMAS meeting will be held on Saturday, March 2nd at 12:30PM. We will be having a lecture explaining different ways to acclimate new livestock. After the lecture we will be having our first 50/50 coral auction! Bring your frags and have some fun!

We will be meeting at the Wingate by Wyndham Hotel in Southeast Durham, 5223 Page Road, Durham. It is located right off of I-40 on Page Road.

Doors open at 12:30PM

Meeting officially starts at 1:00PM and ends at 3:30PM

We hope you can come out, meet some friends, and have a great time! This is a great opportunity for some of the non-locals to see our new club and maybe go home with some nice frags!

Everyone that buys coral at the auction will be taking home a free sample of Coral Rx and a bottle of super glue so they can dip and attach their corals when they get home! Grennan will be explaining how to use the Coral Rx in his talk about acclimation.

We'll also be handing out Instant Ocean fish food to anyone that attends!

Here are the rules for the auction
